The Mushroom House 1 of 12

142 Park Road, Pittsford, NY: $1,100,000

The Mushroom House is an architectural real estate wonder that looks like a fairy tale setting, both on the interior and exterior. The home is made up of four 80-ton pods, and each one's sides are entirely comprised of windows. Each individual pod is supported by reinforced concrete stems ranging between 14 and 20 feet tall. The home contains two sleeping pods, one living and dining pod, one kitchen pod, and a half-pod with an open face that serves as a deck and tunnel to navigate from pod-to-pod, connect them all. In addition to all of that, the Mushroom House has a fountain in its family room, a three-car garage, walls and ceilings built from molded sand and countless other jaw-dropping amenities.
