If your idea of a dream home doesn’t involve the cookie-cutter ranch or colonial styles found in so many suburban neighborhoods these days, this Ohio listing might just be what you’ve been searching for. Featuring a whopping 11 bedrooms and five bathrooms, this Painesville, Ohio, palace is truly unique, which is why it’s going viral on Zillow Gone Wild.

The 1978 “dome home” is designed to be four different units in one with 6,200 square feet of living space. Nestled on 1.71 acres, the uniquely shaped structure ensures that no two rooms are alike, making for a true architectural masterpiece unlike most other listings you’ll come across during a Zillow scroll.

Along with unexpected features like a spiral staircase, heart-shaped hot tub, and a large, airy loft area that overlooks the expansive property, the home’s interiors are equally geodesic, much to the delight of Zillow Gone Wild commenters on Twitter. Plenty love the throwback, ’70s inspired vibes, including the controversial carpeted bathrooms and wood-paneled walls, while others see the potential in making cosmetic updates and bringing the home into more modern times.

Located less than 30 miles northeast of Cleveland, it’s certainly a bargain at $299,000, even by Midwest real estate standards. Still, it seems likely that the new owners would have to make at least some updates, especially if they’re not into the wood-carved signs in the bathroom that inexplicably read “Huh? Whatever! Etc?”

A recent price cut of $51,000 makes the home even more affordable, so if you’re house hunting in the Painesville area, don’t miss your chance to score this one-of-a-kind geometric dome home for yourself.
