This $650K dome house is literally located on the ‘Road to Misery’

If you’re wondering how one ends up on the road to misery, this might be it.

A wacky house in Maine, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, is located on a street literally called Road To Misery.

The grim abode is situated on a colossal 43 acres of land, leaving the prospective owner completely isolated.

Hand-built in 2003 by Maine sculptor Daphne Pulsifer and her family, the property first went up for sale in October.

Her husband, Daniel Bates, had wanted to build a concrete dome when the couple first purchased the land back in 2000. The family turned to the Monolithic Dome Institute — a company based out of Italy, Texas, that advocates for the use of monolithic domes in architectural projects — for inspiration and advice, according to the Portland Press Herald.

Containing three bedrooms and one bathroom, the dome-topped residence spans more than 1,400 square feet.

“Live sustainably off-the-grid” while “still being close to everything Kennebunkport and coastal, southern Maine has to offer,” the listing states.

The home is less than two hours from Boston, the listing notes.

Features include a “fully functional” solar cell electrical system, wood and tile floors, oversized windows, hand-crafted woodwork, a large deck, multiple out-buildings, a cast iron kitchen stove and a fenced-in pasture.

“Surrounded by nature, you’ll love the tranquility of sipping coffee on the deck, listening to birds, and watching deer stroll through the field,” the listing reads.

“I too, would name my road ‘Road to Misery’ if I was trying to keep people away from my cool dome house,” one user commented under the Instagram page Zillow Gone Wild.

“Spanish colonial hobbit teletubby headquarters,” another described.

“Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru really spruced up the joint,” another joked, making a Star Wars reference.
