Bold Geodesic Dome Home With All the Right Angles Is This Week’s Most Popular Listing



realtor.com



This week’s most popular homes on realtor.com® were some of the most architecturally diverse we’ve ever seen. And we are here for it.

A light-filled midcentury modern in Michigan. A fancifully chic farmhouse in Texas that would make Joanna Gaines swoon. And a meticulously restored 19th-century federal home in Salem, MA, that feels as if you’ve stepped back in time.

But it was a colossal double-dome home in Evansville, IN, that had people clicking and sharing the most this week. The geodesic structure landed the coveted title of most-viewed home on realtor.com.

Designed in 1981 by a husband-and-wife team, the 12,000-square-foot Midwestern property—teeming with prime 1980s and ’90s-inspired design—is truly unforgettable.

But don’t take our word for it. Check out this architectural gem for yourself, along with our other most popular homes of the week.

If you’re still feeling a little cramped, step out on to the wraparound porch overlooking nearly 14 acres.
