This house, or grouping of pods, strikes me more as a bunch of toadstools rather than mushrooms. Not to get too technical, but I think of mushrooms as short, squat, fat little things. And we have featured plenty of short, squat mushroom houses here at House Crazy (see here, here and here).
But the delicate pod house near Pittsford, New York seems a bit more toadstool-in-fairy-land-ish – don’t you think?
Come on in…
Referred to as the “Mushroom House”, architect James Johnson fashioned this unique dwelling after a stem of Queen Anne’s Lace.

I’m nothing of a botanist but… isn’t a mushroom a totally different creature than Queen Anne’s Lace?
The “Mushroom House” was built in 1971 and sold most recently in February 2012 for $799,900.
This sculptural abode has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 3,324 square feet.
In the year 2001 the original architect designed a new great room addition that included a gas fireplace and hot tub.
The funkiness continues in the bathrooms…
The pods are actually situated next to a small stream and waterfall:
I LOVE this place!
