STUNNING pictures have revealed the unique mushroom-shaped house that could be yours for just over £1.1million.

Incredible images show the open plan interior which features a kitchen, living area and a fire place in a large circular room.

A spiral staircase leads upstairs where three bedrooms, two bathrooms and another living area wait.

Exterior pictures of the property show the round house is topped with a flat roof, giving it a mushroom-like appearance and it even comes with a mushroom-shaped car port.

The striking photographs show 11 Orchard Brook Drive in Pleasantville, New York which is valued at $1.5million (£1,145,400).

The 2,164 square-foot property was built in 1948 by famous American architect Frank Lloyd-Wright who designed more than 1,000 structures.

The property has been listed as equally adept for a full-time home or a hidden retreat as it lies at the end of a private drive just 50 minutes north of Manhattan.

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 stone centre fireplace and marvellous 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. A private residence respected and cherished.

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”.
