Gallery: Rare double dome house for sale in Eden Prairie, comes with slides
A rare double geodesic dome house – with slides – in Eden Prairie is for sale for $ 2.99 million.
The “Double Domes of Eden Prairie” is an 8,050 square foot home located at 6525 Rowland Road. Built in 1977, the design of the house is an interpretation of contemporary architecture that is “very rare,” real estate agent Jason Zoellner told Bring Me The News. Zoellner and Carrie Ledermann, both of Edina Realty, have the list.
The six-bedroom, five-bathroom home sits on nearly 2 acres of private land a 5-minute walk from Bryant Lake Park, with Zoellner claiming her favorite feature is “the elegance and fun of home all together.” .
He says the house would be perfect for “a large family who wants a fantastic getaway home so they can grow up,” noting that the current owners are entrepreneurs with four young children.
Here’s a look at the interior:
