First 3D-printed house for sale at $300K on Long Island


By: Onimisi-Momoh

3D printed face masks and even 3D printed dolls sound familiar but for the first time ever, you can buy your very own 3D-printed house — for only $299,999.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a two-car garage in Riverhead, New York, is made of 3D-printed cement. The asking price is said to make the property a steal on pricey Long Island, where a home of the same size would typically cost $478,380, according to market data

,Listing broker Stephen King of Realty Connect while disclosing his opinion said “At $299,999, this home is priced 50% below the cost of comparable newly constructed homes in Riverhead, NY, and represents a major step toward addressing the affordable-housing crisis plaguing Long Island.

The gray house currently sits on a 0.26-acre lot, and images reveal a meticulous outdoor garden and small front porch sitting area. The walls are 8 feet tall, but the timber ceiling is arched, providing more height to the house. 

The 1,407-square-foot house was designed by Manhattan-based engineering firm H2M, built by Long Island-based 3-D-printing company SQ4D, and is billed on Zillow as “the world’s first 3D printed home for sale.”
