Mushroom House, Bethesda's Weirdest Home, Sells for $920K

New, 2 comments

After six months on the Bethesda market, the infamous Mushroom House was sold to an anonymous buyer for $920,000. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home was first listed last October for $1.2 million. The listing is known by several monikers, including "Flinstone House" and "Smurf House." It was transformed from an everyday, non-Hobbit-like abode into a polyurethane foam-covered fantasy after former owners Edward and Frances Garfinkle bought the home in 1967. The renovation, headed by Roy Mason, lasted three years. Since then, the Bethesda abode has been featured in Bethesda Magazine and the book, Weird Maryland by Matt Lake.
