Listing RemarksParadise comes in all shapes and sizes. Welcome to the dream dome home of Waimea Valley. When you arrive, you gain a sense of the holistic approach to living a sustainable lifestyle that the homeowner envisioned. With almost 1 acre of agricultural land set against the Waimea river, this property with its abundant tropical plantings is a secluded oasis. When we asked the homeowner to describe what she loves about the home and property, she said, "at night, it's like a planetarium, it's so peaceful and during the day, you can hear the river and beautiful bird songs all day long". There is a water feature and pond in the front yard, with irrigation water from Menehune Ditch, the oldest archaeological site in the State of Hawaii. The monolithic dome is so well built and insulated, that it's energy-efficient, disaster-resistant, and durable. But let's get to the good part... The living area is on the second level with two bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. There are two outdoor hot and cold showers in the lounge area below. The interior is artistically painted with tropical designs and coconut palms. The kitchen countertops and appliances are sleek stainless steel. The oversized lanai provides views of mountains, tropical plantings, and the wondrous features of the valley. The two most important advantages of a dome structure, are its high strength and excellent insulating properties. The monolithic dome owes its durability to the natural strength of the arch or "keyway", and good insulation is provided by the minimal surface of the spherical cross-section.
