While you ponder a dome dwelling side hustle in Indiana, have a look at the rest of this week’s most popular properties.

10. 21 N Park Ave, Trooper, PA

Price: $200,000
Why it’s here: Built in the 1930s, this adorable home oozes vintage charm. We’re particularly enamored by the stone room outfitted with a cozy fireplace. We’re also in love with the price on this four-bedroom classic—it’s only $69 per square foot!


9. 108 Blackburn Pl, Covington, LA

Price: $990,000
Why it’s here: Sitting on 2 acres of land a few miles north of Lake Pontchartrain, this Acadian-style home gives off an old-timey Southern vibe from the outside. However, the interior of this 1989-built home is all modern. For a buyer looking to spread out, the five-bedroom house comes with over 7,400 square feet of living space.


8. 139 Ridge Ave, Greendale, IN

Price: $59,500
Why it’s here: We’ll assume the ominous picture of this old building has something to do with its popularity. With the property being sold as is, an industrious buyer will have a multiyear restoration project on her hands. But at only $7(!) per square foot, it’s worth the challenge.


7. 594 S Mapleton Dr, Los Angeles, CA

Price: $200,000,000
Why it’s here: It’s the Spelling Manor. Fun fact: If a buyer puts down 20% ($40 million), the mortgage payment would be a cool million each month. It’s time to start saving for it!


6. 4068 Chester Hwy, McConnells, SC

Price: $315,000
Why it’s here: We’re sensing a trend with vintage homes this week. This ’20s charmer sits on a couple of acres and offers two awesome options for sipping sweet tea: a beautiful back deck and a fabulous front porch.


5. 114 Manning Dr, Berea, OH

Price: $250,000
Why it’s here: This budget-friendly, Cape Cod–style home is only a short drive to Cleveland. The four-bedroom home also boasts a finished basement, which we already see as a perfect man cave. Go, Browns?


4. 50 Grand View Trl, Orchard Park, NY

Price: $1,100,000
Why it’s here: Speaking of football, it’s the home of deposed Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan. Ryan will work for ESPN on Super Bowl Sunday, perhaps providing a glimpse of his future as a well-compensated talking head. Hoist a nacho in his honor as you browse the pictures of the beautiful Buffalo-area home he’s leaving behind.


3. 220 N Cardinal Ave, Addison, IL

Price: $549,900
Why it’s here: Once owned by Dick Portillo, aka the “Hot Dog King of Chicago,” this home has mustard a fair amount of interest, according to listing agent Frank Paganis. We’re in love with the home’s massive indoor pool accompanied by a Tiki bar, but the rest of the five-bedroom house is also worth relishing. Paganis told us the wiener monarch sold the home in the late ’80s, but the current owner “has a great eye for design.” That eye has translated into a quick sale—the agent said the home’s already under contract.


2. 1346 Wooded Way, Bryn Mawr, PA

Price: $3,100,000
Why it’s here: Former Sixers GM Sam Hinkie‘s home slid one spot this week, finishing as runner-up in our popularity contest. Stay tuned—finding the right buyer is just a part of The Process.


1. 5575 County Road 17, Garrett, IN

Price: $299,000
Why it’s here: It’s been too long since we’ve seen a dome home leap to the top of the list! And this isn’t just any garden-variety geodesic wonder. Painted black and known locally as the “Igloo House,” this dome also has a separate pole barn situated on over 3 acres of land. Convert the pole barn into a living space (barndominium!) and you can be the Airbnb ace of northern Indiana.
