Charlestown, Rhode Island. Architect Soheil Tavakoli drew on Native American and Persian design for this three-bedroom home set on 27 wooded acres. The house, crafted with stone, glass, tiles, and seven kinds of wood, was built to create a flow between rooms and from inside to outdoors, and the main room’s ceiling is a 72-facet skylit Persian dome.
The grounds include tea and bath houses, four water features, and a yoga deck. $5,999,999. William Dumke, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, (914) 806-1042.
