Quirky dome-shaped home that’s a double for Luke Skywalker’s iconic Star Wars hut sells for $300,000

A quirky eco home that looks like it has come straight from a galaxy far, far away has sold for $300,000.

The dome-shaped three-bedroom home in the mountains of Tonasket, Washington, has an uncanny resemblance to Luke Skywalker’s hut on the sandy plains of Tatooine in Star Wars.

The one-storey home has three domed sections covered in mud-like stucco surrounded by 38 acres of land, with its very own solar generator energy system.

Upper Valley Realty listed the house for $360,000 in September but it was eventually sold for $292,000.

The new owner can enjoy a vinyl-floored interior with an open-plan living room complete with a stone feature wall adorned with floral artwork.

One of the two bathrooms is furnished with a marble-topped sink area, while the spacious kitchen and dining area has wooden furniture and fittings.

The all-in-one wall and roof is painted white throughout, helping bring light to the property, and it also boasts skylights, heated flooring and a two-car garage.
