About 304 Park Avenue

This Charlevoix Mushroom House, known as The Thatch House, rose from the original stone walls set by Earl Young. Built as his first home in 1918, the house did not encompass Young's developing unique hobbit-home style, but today, in a dramatic re-imagining, The Thatch House exemplifies the storybook magic of the Earl Young mushroom houses. The new "mushroom house design", conceived on a napkin by the new owner, took nearly 2 years to finalize. Specialized timber work, carefully erected with every beam layer, is unique and bold. The beautifully flowing roof is crafted from the finest natural thatch hand-reaped in Europe and shipped to the USA. During one of the coldest winters, a master thatcher painstakingly worked under daunting conditions, so that symbolically the new creation was ready to greet the new spring with new life.
