A dome-shaped three-bedroom, two-bath Flanders cottage now listed for $899,000 is efficient to heat and cool in addition to being architecturally intriguing, its owners say.
“It is not a huge house, but it is a roomy house that is very convenient for family visits and entertaining,” physician and broadcaster Dr. Michael S. Aronoff says of the 1,762-square-foot home on Reeves Bay.
Aronoff and his wife, broadcaster and journalist Dara Welles Aronoff, bought the home in 2005 shortly after selling an upstate New York lakefront log home.
“We wanted something with more space and more light,” she says.
An open floor plan includes a two-story living room with trapezoidal windows and bay views, dining space and a kitchen. There is a first-floor master bedroom and a four-seasons sunroom with nature views and a wood-burning stove. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, a full bath and third-floor cupola/attic currently in use as a study.
Basement appliances were preventatively raised on the home, which is on a solid concrete in-ground foundation, following superstorm Sandy. There is two-zone central air-conditioning.
The 0.97-acre property includes 63 feet of direct waterfront, a dock in Reeves Bay and patio and deck.
The home is listed with Enzo Morabito and Regina Cigna of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
