Dome House on Billings’ Rims Hits the Market. It’s Pretty Awesome
Our radio station studios are located on the northwest corner of the 23rd floor of the DoubleTree Hotel downtown. I spend every morning watching the early flights take off from the airport as the sunrise climbs over Billings.
Every day, I also see "the dome house" that sits tucked under the Rimrocks, just off N. 27th St. It's located basically straight north of the MSU-B baseball field. I've always wondered what the house is like inside. Unique house designs are much more interesting than boring old ranch-style homes and generic McMansions, in my opinion. As it turns out, the dome home on the Rims just hit the market, and thanks to Zillow we can take a peek inside. Check it out.
It was built in 2003.
I remember dome homes being somewhat trendy when I was a kid. It seemed like they were frequently featured in publications such as Mother Earth News magazine. I vaguely recall my parents talking about building one. They never did, but the idea of living in a dome home is still intriguing to me.
According to the listing information, the kitchen features seamless Avonite solid surface countertops and custom-made cherry cabinets finished in tongue oil.
Talk about "light and bright!"
Soaring 20-foot ceilings in the dual-domed residence offer an extremely open feeling and 300 feet of front-facing windows provide stunning 180-degree views over the city of Billings.
The "exquisite" master ensuite includes an open shower set in a "grove of aspens."
3 bedrooms, 3 baths.
The home features 3,874 square feet of living space. Other details include a sophisticated theater, extensive acoustical treatments, an Atmos surround sound, and a 92" diagonal screen projector. There is also a two-car garage, not visible in the listing photos.
