Do you have a big wad of cash to buy this quirky masterpiece? This hobbit house’s dome-shaped rooms are orbited by trees and a sweet little creek. Beyond the living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, there’s also a study and a steam room. The two largest rooms — the living room and master bedroom — were constructed from a circular steel cage covered with plywood and polyurethane foam, with the inside coated with cellulose made from recycled newspapers. The home’s smaller rooms were made from an aircraft carrier’s turret covers! Rooms are graced with portholes, skylights, stained glass panels, and painted murals adorning the high ceilings. The main dome is an expansive space for entertaining and gathering. The home has been lovingly restored preserving original art and design of renowned Dutch artist Francisco Reynders. Experience mystique and enchantment in your everyday life in this magical abode.
