Unique Home for Independent, Free-Spirited Beach Folks. Spacious Custom Home with Abundant Privacy and In-Law Quarters Private Home Setting with Pool, Spa and Unique Architecture. R. Buckminster Fuller is renown for crafting the first geodesic dome which sustained its own weight without practical limits. Though designed by someone else 25 years prior to his work, Fuller received a patent and is widely credited with its innovation. Independent, creative people have built dome houses all over the country, and the U.S. government contracted with Fuller’s firm to construct little domes for the Marines.
Here, less than a mile from the sugar white sandy beaches and emerald green Gulf of Mexico waters, stands an interesting, 4-BR, 3.5 BA dome house with triangular skylights, covered balconies and a greenhouse window. Privacy abounds not only within the secluded neighborhood of Pines of Blue Mountain, but also in the cul-de-sac location and fenced and gated 1/2-acre property with trees, shrubs and nicely designed and maintained landscaping. Blue Mountain Beach is named for the lupine wildflowers which grow here and known for being the highest point along the Florida Gulf shoreline. A welcoming circular, paver driveway features tall palm trees and bushes in a landscaped circle in the middle. The main house features the primary living spaces, and an attached carriage house offers lovely guest, in-law or teen accommodations. Outdoor entertaining is extravagant with patio space, a kidney-shaped swimming pool, spa, lawn and a little matching dome storage building. The property exudes an energy and vitality all its own and is a perfect dwelling for those who like to color outside the lines.
