Featured in the New York Times, this 6,000 sq. ft home located in Aspen, Colorado was built over the course of serveral years beginning in 1973.  Mr. Andre Ulrych, the house's architect, builder, and first resident, said he took his design cues from a nautilis shell despite it's nickname.   The Magic Mushroom House was the nickname given to the home because of its appearance, decor, and the era in which it was built.  12 levels with platforms are in the home along with a number of ladders and narrow stairways.  The property is now a vacation home for the current owners, Mr. and Mrs. Findlay.  Check it out..
