Outside, the house's roof curves into the shape of a mushroom. Inside, you'll find hidden nooks and porthole windows.
The famous "Mushroom House" of Bethesda, Maryland, is going back on the market after an extensive renovation, Compass agent Jill Schwartz told News4. Photos show the same fairy-tale exterior that people stop their cars to stare at, plus many modern upgrades inside. When you live in the mushroom house, you add whimsy to your life, Schwartz said.
"You go out to work and school all day, and you're in this life of stress, and you come home to a mushroom house," she said.
The 5,500-square-foot house at 4949 Allan Road, near the D.C.-Maryland border, now has high-end appliances, luxury granite, new floors, restained wood and updated landscaping. But "it's still a mushroom through and through," Schwartz said. It has six bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-baths. A one-bedroom apartment is part of the property.
The price is set to be released this week. It sold for $920,000 in 2015.
