In upstate New York, nestled high in the trees, sits a strange series of structures–something people have always referred to as the Mushroom House.
The home was built in the 1970s by an architect named James H. Johnson, for a couple who had just purchased the 1.2-acre lot. Reportedly he handed the couple a Coke bottle with three stems of Queen Annes Lace in it, and told them “This is your new home.”
After a few shaky tries at the build–the home was constructed as pods–each of the three pods weighing around 80 tons. The current owners had a new great room built into the side of the hill. It is connected to the home via an underground tunnel lined with fiber-optic lights.
The home has been on the market since 2011–and originally listed for $1.1 million. Today it can be yours for a mere $729,000.
