Like mood rings and Green Goddess dressing, the geodesic dome may have gone out of fashion at the end of the 1970s, but when you’re in the lush forest of the Russian River, it’s an architectural style that makes sense no matter the era.
The $475,000 sphere of polygons at 12090 Highway 116 sits among the trees with its many windows bringing the lush wilderness inside.
The home is cozy with one bedroom and one bathroom and its triangular interior panels extending from the floor to the ceiling are made from a rich natural cedar.
“It’s very peaceful when you’re in it,” says Theresa Disbro, who is co-listing the property with David Millar of Millar and Company. “Something about it has this bubble feeling. You feel very safe. It’s beautiful and has a great smell with all that wood.”

Built in 1980, the property sits on less than a quarter acre a five-minute drive from town. There’s a separate building for laundry and a wooden deck surrounds most of the house.
The seller has owned it for 10 years and recently did a renovation, redoing the floors in bamboo, replacing windows and upgrading the kitchen.
Disbro thinks it would make a great getaway for someone living in the city or a vacation rental property.
