#### Abstract

We prove that each coarsely homogenous separable metric space $X$ is coarsely equivalent to one of the spaces: the sigleton, the Cantor macro-cube or the Baire macro-space. This classification is derived from coarse characterizations of the Cantor macro-cube and of the Baire macro-space given in this paper. Namely, we prove that a separable metric space $X$ is coarsely equivalent to the Baire macro-space if any only if $X$ has asymptotic dimension zero and has unbounded geometry in the sense that for every $\delta$ there is $\epsilon$ such that no $\epsilon$-ball in $X$ can be covered by finitely many sets of diameter $\le \delta$.
