Mushroom House



The house has been called the, “mushroom house”, “tree house”, and “Dr. Seuss house”. The design comes from the imagination of Terry Brown who was an architect and professor of architecture and interior design at the University of Cincinnati. Professor Brown with the help of students from the University of Cincinnati DAAP program worked on the house from 1992 to 2006. The house was built around a small cottage that was built in 1913. The whimsical home was built with a variety of materials such as cedar shakes, seashells, tiles, stained glass, and metals. This ornate home features a variety of shapes, colors, and textures with a winding steel steps and even a mosaic chimney.

Terry Brown sold the home in 2006 and sadly passed away in 2008.
