When selling your house, it can be easy to get swept up in curb appeal, figuring out how to make your place stand out among the sea of Zillow listings. The lucky new owners of this geodesic dome home, though, will have no problem. Clad in gray stucco and featuring five separate terraces and many gabled windows, this rounded house is ripe for pareidolia, a.k.a. that fun phenomenon of seeing meaningful shapes in random patterns, like faces in buildings.

Partially encased by a fence and meticulously landscaped, the property is a self-contained sanctuary. Built in 2008, the home is barely 15 years old, and still, it’s been renovated by the current owners. Step inside to find a sweeping floor plan that contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms total.

Sunlight floods the living space, thanks to the many windows, glass doors, soaring ceilings, and bright white walls that bounce the light all around. The dining room and den all live in the same open space, making it an entertainer’s dream. You can easily host a soiree with all of your friends — and their friends, too.

In the stylishly angled kitchen, you’ll find stainless steel appliances, open shelving, sleek, dark gray cabinetry, and a walk-in pantry to top it all off. White and gray are the current signature colors of the entire home, actually, from the building’s stucco exterior to the white bathroom tiles and gray vanity.

As you walk around the home, you’ll notice skylights, catwalk hallways, and interesting angles due to the geodesic structure. The curb appeal is off the charts, to be sure, but it’s not just a trick of the eye. The interior is bright, modern, and filled with blank walls for the next owner to make their own.
