It’s not your typical, garden-variety home.
But, despite this, the property designed to resemble a mushroom is clearly considered a rich picking – after going on the market for nearly £1.2million, this month.
The unusual structure, which is situated in Pleasantville, New York, boasts a prime location just fifty minutes north of Manhattan and is attracting serious attention for its quirky aestehtic, which can be seen in full thanks to new estate agent pictures.
Quirky: The building at 11 Orchard Brook Drive, Pleasantville, NY, has gone on the market for nearly £1.2million ($1.5million)
Incredible images show the open-plan interior of the building at 11 Orchard Brook Drive, which features a kitchen, living area and fire place in a large, circular room.
A spiral staircase leads upstairs where three bedrooms, two bathrooms and another living area await.
Exterior pictures of the property – estimated at $1.5million (£1,145,400) – show the round house is topped with a flat roof, giving it a fungi-like appearance.
The 2,164 square-foot property was built in 1948 by famous American architect Frank Lloyd-Wright who designed more than 1,000 structures.

Nope, fairies can’t be seen! The property has been listed as equally adept for a full-time home or a hidden retreat
The property, which lies at the end of a private drive, has been listed as ideal for use as a full-time home or hidden retreat.
Inside, the curving living space gives a sense of movement and connectivity to the outside, not unlike a tree house floating in the woods.
Magnificent oak built-ins and furniture, designed by Wright himself, show his genius in their utility.
Just adjacent to the main house, atop the properties rising stone wall, is a distinctive concrete formed pedestal carport; a mushroom seemingly growing up from the ground.

Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed.
Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture.
This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called ‘the best all-time work of American architecture’.
