BUILDED to resist earthquakes and cyclones, an entire weather home in Torrens Park offers a unique perspective on sustainable living.
The geodesic dome home at 6 Parkers Rd is modeled on the design by Buckminster Fuller, an American architect and inventor best known for his geometric homes.
Originally built by an Adelaide-based physician in 1985, the unique property has been the valuable home of Lachlan Price for the last three years.
"What drew me to the property was its location, but also the fact that it is extremely unique," he says.
"The house has a hexagonal base with the walls made of triangular joints.
" In one way, this was the tip of the time it was built, but even today it still has a wow factor. " The house has open plan living throughout the house and has three bedrooms, two of which are located upstairs and served by a family bathroom and a family room with balcony access.

The roof that covers most of the exterior of the home were also recently removed and re-shingled.
"When the home was built, they used the old asphalt shingles, but I had them completely ripped and replaced with CertainTeed," says Price.  "It gives a 40 years g aranti and makes the home more waterproof and gives it a more aesthetic look. "
The property is for sale with Harris Real Estate and will be auctioned with a price guide of $ 600,000, Saturday 28th April at. 10.00
