142 Park Rd, Pittsford, NY
For sale: $995,000
It was designed to look like a stem of Queen Anne's lace, but due to its pod-style design, this home is most often referred to as the "Mushroom House."
Located about 10 miles southeast of Rochester, NY, the house was constructed in 1971, though it was no easy feat. After several failed attempts, the builders created five interconnected pods — two for sleeping, one for the kitchen and sitting area, one with a fireplace for the living and dining room, and one housing a deck.
7625 State Route 179, Sedona, AZ
For sale: $1.2 million
Featured on MTV's "Extreme Cribs," this Sedona standout has 10 colorful domes perched on 3.5 acres.
An indoor water feature, theater dome and oval breakfast nook bring the home's playful character inside, while a sparkling pool and spray-painted yin-yang symbol complement the exterior.
