A 2,068 square-foot geodesic dome features a modern interior design and vibrant finishes. The location is near Lake Tahoe, California, ski resorts, restaurants and golf courses.

A geodesic dome house in South Lake Tahoe with a modern interior and lively decor has hit the market for $899,000. The four-bedroom, two-bath home, built in 1987, was recently remodeled “with mountain modern flare,” according to the Compass real estate firm. “This groovy property sells totally turn-key,” according to the listing.

The home at 2290 Marshall Trail sits within Montgomery Estates and is a short walk from popular hiking trails. The unique shape of the house not only makes for a striking interior with fantastic angles, but can better withstand winters in the Sierra Nevada mountains. “The unique shape of the geodesic dome creates a dramatic interior with triangle patterns filling the walls and voluminous ceilings,” listing agent Mark Salmon of Compass said. “This rigid triangular construction serves to make the structure stronger and more resilient to wind and snow. The home has been tastefully remodeled with some mountain modern flare and offers a vibrant, eclectic decor.”

Inside the dome, the open living space spans 2,068 square feet with towering ceilings and lots of natural light. The decor is vibrant. There is a full bar and up-to-date kitchen. The bedrooms are sizeable and “gilded in mid-century eclectic style,” according to the listing. “Cultured with a touch of modern flare, the kitchen brilliantly fuses white painted cabinetry with charcoal subway tile, quartz countertops and stainless appliances,” according to the listing. “Indulge your guests with a cocktail from the full bar, dine al fresco at the wine barrel outdoor table or enjoy a soak in the hot tub after a day on the slopes.” The home, which sits on a 7,841-square-foot lot (0.18 acres), is also near Heavenly Mountain ski resort and Lake Tahoe Golf Course.
