The dome home rotates to take advantage of the sun’s energy.

By Erika Riggs, Zillow

116 Canaan Rd, New Paltz NY
For sale: $1,200,000

Built on an electronically-controlled axle and with a push of a button, this 3,000-square-foot New Paltz home for sale can rotate 360 degrees. In five orbital minutes, the house completes one full rotation. The feature is used to take advantage of the sun for the home’s solar energy needs. Each season, the home is rotated for maximum efficiency, explained listing agent Anne Rajs.

While the home looks similar to geodesic dome homes, it was built using a kit from France called Domespace and is the only structure like it that has been constructed in the U.S.

The two-story home features 40-foot ceilings centered by the axle. Tall, wedge-shaped windows keep the interiors light-filled and open. The home features bamboo flooring and custom wood and stone cabinetry. The first floor contains two bedrooms and the majority of the living space. A central spiral staircase leads to the second floor which holds the master suite, office and additional balcony space.

The home has also been featured on the Discovery Channel and a video of the interiors, as well as the home rotating, is on YouTube.
