An unusual home of sculptor Daphne Pulsifer for sale in the U.S.

An unusual building in Maine, resembling a fabulous clay hut, used to belong to the sculptor Daphne Pulsifer. Those wishing to purchase it can do so for $690,000.

This unusual domed house is located near the small village of Kennebankport on the Atlantic Ocean in Maine. It covers 43 acres and sits practically in the woods, a spot chosen by its owner, sculptor Daphne Pulsifer.

She always wanted to live away from big cities among wildlife, wake up at dawn with the birds and draw inspiration from the surrounding wild scenery.

Daphne and her friend Daniel Bates moved here in 2003 and built this quaint, fairy-tale hut-like home with their own hands. “I think of it as my biggest sculpture,” says the landlady. And indeed, the construction of the house is unusual: The main building is a giant concrete dome two stories high (the couple helped design it with the Texas Institute for Monolithic Domes). It is joined by a second, smaller volume that resembles a traditional tile-roofed house.

Inside, the house is literally flooded with light. In the domed volume there is a two-floor space that combines the functions of the living room and kitchen. From this space, a staircase leads up to the second floor, where the living areas are located.

The house is completely ecological, it gets its energy from solar panels and the water is stored in a well on the plot. Not so long ago Daphne put her house on sale: you can buy an unusual forest hut in Maine for 690 thousand dollars.
