About the Property

3 bedroom 2 bath on 11 acres with a 2,000 sq. ft. deck

The Quiet Dome is located on 11 private acres of mature forest that is minutes away from first class restaurants in Grass Valley, Colefax, and Nevada City. The dome itself is a passively heated and cooled monolithic dome that was specifically designed with an extremely low electromagnetic signature for the relaxed feeling of a camping trip but all the conveniences of urban life.

Local restaurants often use locally grown organic produce. Historic Colfax, Grass Valley, and Nevada City offer distinctive shopping, a colorful historic past, and a nearly endless supply of festivals, celebrations, and fairs. The dome is also close to endless miles of hiking trails, waterfalls, and high mountain lakes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Rob and Abigail built the dome as a healing spa for people who are sick from Wi-Fi, cell towers, and chemicals. Rob (an MIT graduate) engineered the dome. He designed it with all the comforts of urban life, but a dramatically lowered EMF footprint for people to recover from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EMH). We want to show the real estate community that low EMF SELLS! They have the power to clean shopping malls, apartments, and houses across the country, if we show them it is profitable. Dr. Sam Milham's book Dirty Electricity shows that electrification of the US from 1920 through 1950 caused a substantial increases in suicide, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Today's plague is electronic communication infrastructure, and until we recruit enough believers, no one will make it safe. Did you know the call centers at Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast have no cell phones! All their phones are hard wired.

Why the Owner Chose Grass Valley, CA, USA:
This location has negligible background radiation from cell towers because it is in a ravine that shields it from all but one tower, that is over 2 miles away through heavily forested terrain. In addition, the location has a 12 month stream that generates torsion fields which are both relaxing and therapeutic.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In addition to low EMF, its environmental footprint is tiny. The dome is primarily heated and cooled passively. The dome's water supply comes from a deep well that tests zero for heavy metals, agricultural chemicals, and residual pharmaceuticals. It is delicious, and a real treat when compared with tap water, or even reverse osmosis filtered water. Visit the Dome and take a vacation from fluoridated tap water, pfthalate laden bottled water. and 'health drinks' laced with GMO corn syrup, aspartame, and chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons.
