A literal tubular home is now for sale in St. Petersburg

A former dilapidated barn in St. Petersburg was transformed into a modern tube-shaped home—and it's currently on the market.

Located on a corner lot at 401 La Plaza Ave. S, in the South Pasadena neighborhood, the tubular home's current owner completely gutted what was once and old barn, says listing agent Jill Helgren of Coastal Property Group, and added everything from a new pool, cement epoxy floors, and the detached garage.

"It’s just a really neat property," said Helgren, "the neighbors call it the 'dome house' but I think we can come up with something better than that."

We're not sure what to call it, maybe eh the "Conduit Condo" or "The Barrel House?" Either way,  it's probably going to require a unique buyer.

The 3,216-square-foot house comes with just one bedroom and two bathrooms, but it sits on a massive lot, and features a lengthy list of upgrades like impact windows, an elastomeric roof, four ovens and more.

The current asking price for this cylinder-style dwelling is $1.2 million.
