This $5 million dome-shaped home, known among locals as 'The Star Wars Home,' is hurricane-resistant and available to buy for the first time -- take a look inside

South Carolina's infamous dome-shaped home, dubbed "The Eye of the Storm," has been listed for sale for the first time ever with a $5 million price tag.

The four-level, 4,047-square-foot home at 2851 Marshall Boulevard in Sullivan's Island was built in 1991 and was designed with the proximity of Mother Nature in mind. Its features render the abode heavily resistant to hurricanes, hence the house's name.

Pareto Group realtor Michael Royal, who is also the nephew of the home's designer, told Business Insider that the home's otherworldly shape has given it another nickname among locals: "The Star Wars Home."
