This mid-century dome home on Crystal Lake is a retro hideaway — let’s take a tour


Dome is where the heart is and our mid-century-loving heart wants to call this Frankfort dome home, well, home.

Built in 1968, this precious and retro dome home is the type of vacation spot you end up moving into permanently and going full Walden meets Don Draper at that hippie retreat. Though tiny in size for its $675,000 price tag (it has 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are set up with bunk bed situations, 2 baths, and clocks in at 1,800 square-feet) the home has 85 feet of private non-Jason Voorhees South Shore Crystal Lake frontage. If the carpet, wood paneling, and Formica countertops aren't enough for your retro fantasies, how about a cozy sunken living room with a wood-burning fireplace that is fit for a conversation pit? In addition to all the delicious offerings of the cottage's interior, the outside is just as scrumptious. Like the dome garage complete with a large loft area or the wrap-around lakeside deck that leads to a private sandy beach moment.
