Monolithic Dome Home for Sale
UPDATE: Also available for rent with a one-year lease if you want to experience the dome before deciding to buy.
Unique 2-bedroom, 2-bath monolithic dome residence spanning 2,222 square feet of living space plus attached 2-car garage.
Tucked away at the end of a winding gated driveway, this rare monolithic dome dwelling is situated on a secluded 1.6-acre parcel in Ocala, Florida.
The main dome has an impressive 20-foot apex height, creating a voluminous living environment. The expansive master suite features dual closets, vanities, toilets, shower heads, and a two-person jacuzzi bathtub. Slate tile flooring flows throughout the interior. The kitchen features stone countertops and cabinets with soft-close doors. A patio provides space for outdoor relaxation.
Monolithic domes are known for exceptional energy efficiency and resiliency in hurricanes and other weather events. Insurance is currently only $1,059/year with State Farm, and that is with a non-owner-occupied premium. Taxes are currently $4,241/year (2022) but would go down to around $3,600/year if you live on the property and file the homestead exemption. The residence is equipped with a well and is pre-wired for a backup generator in case of power interruptions. Currently equipped with on-grid electric and wired for internet, TV, and ADT. Great potential to convert to a private off-grid retreat. The empty lot to the east may also be for sale soon.
The site was purchased and developed in 2007 by the original owner at a cost of $400,000. The current owner has renovated the entire exterior in 2020 including new entrances and a liquid rubber roof. A brand new expanded septic drain field was completed in 2023, which opens up the possibility to convert the attached garage into two additional bedrooms. This would expand the total living space to 3,000 square feet.
The Publix grocery store is 7 minutes away. The Santos Trailhead is less than a mile away for walking and cycling. It includes access to the paved Cross Florida Greenway and 90 miles of mountain bike trails that are internationally known. The Country Club of Ocala is also in close proximity.
Central Florida is home to many picturesque rivers and natural springs that are perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, tubing, and snorkeling. Silver Springs State Park (20 minutes away) offers glass bottom boat tours, kayaking, wild monkey sightings, and manatee sightings (during cooler months).
Ocala, known as the “Horse Capital of the World,” has just seen the opening of the new World Equestrian Center which offers upscale retail, dining, hospitality, and events. To the south, The Villages – America’s largest retirement destination – hosts nightly free outdoor concerts accessible to the public. Quick day trips are possible to Gainesville, a vibrant college-town, Mt. Dora, a charming small town celebrated for its festivals, and Orlando, Daytona Beach, and the Tampa Bay area for water parks, theme parks, sporting events, and beaches.
Recently leased on a long-term basis for $2,222 per month, this property presents an enticing opportunity for short-term rentals on platforms such as Airbnb or VRBO.
