Anyone that has ever been to Charlevoix, Michigan has probably seen the series of unique whimsical Hobbit-like cottages built along Park Avenue in front of Michigan Beach Park. The homes were the creative designs of the famous builder/architect Earl Young.

The Mushroom Homes are one of his most infamous by far, and now one can actually be yours.
The home knowns as The Thatch House has been listed for $4,500,000. The home was Young's first home built in 1918. Although it was an original Young home, the current owner reimagined and redesigned the home to resemble that storybook vibe that Young created later in his years.

The flowing roof is crafted from the finest natural thatch hand-reaped in Europe and shipped to the United States according to the listing.
Inside you will find 7 bedrooms, and 7 bathrooms throughout the 6000-square foot enchanting cottage. Timeless landscaping and beautiful views make the setting storybook perfect.
Currently, the home is being offered as vacation and special events rental along with the other 3 Mushroom homes, but The Thatch House is just waiting for you to call it your own.
