House of the Day: Cincinnati's Magical 'Mushroom House'

mushroom house

You already knew about New York's incredible "Mushroom House" but it seems like Ohio's got its own that blows New York's right out of the water.

This colorful and quirky one-bedroom, one-bathroom home in Cincinnati looks like it's been plucked straight out of a Tim Burton movie. With a spiraling, neon-orange staircase, curved walls, psychedelic stained glass, circular steel steps and anthropomorphic window shapes, this crazy-beautiful home may be listed for $349,000 (previously $525,000) but its eclectic appeal is priceless. Though the New York "Mushroom House" admittedly looks more like a mushroom, this Pixar-esque home is known by the same name due to its unique siding that perfectly resembles the underside of a mushroom. See for yourself.


The home was built by architect Terry Brown, who spent over a decade creating the unusual home with 35 of his former students from the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Every inch of the 1,260-square-foot Mushroom House is decked out in either wood, colored glass, shell or ceramics. In fact, it's engulfed in so many different colors, shapes and textures, it's less of a house than it is a work of art.

Amanda Coleman Voss of Robinson Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
