About 90 minutes north of New York City in New Paltz, NY, sits a spectacular wooden UFO-like dome dwelling in the middle of a 28-acre forest at the foot of the Mohonk Nature Preserve. Built in 1999, the 2,300-square-foot prefab was created by French kit home company Domespace. Of some 200 "Domespaces" built worldwide, this may still be the only one realized in the U.S so far—and its site seems to be perfect. The three-bedroom home, designed to be eco-friendly and engaged with nature, can rotate 360 degrees by the touch of a remote, ensuring it's always taking advantage of the sun for controlling indoor temperature, as well as providing a change of scenery.
Inside, a very open floor plan, soaring 40 ft ceilings, and huge curved windows. The two-level space, includes a custom-built spiral staircase that leads to the upper level library, office, guest bedroom, and bath. This unique property is currently on the market for $950,000.
