[FOR SALE] A Whimsical Home Designed by Muppet Set Designer

Imagine living in Catskill’’s Tower House!

 

A masterpiece by John Kahn, set designer, friend and collaborator of the late Muppet creator, this unique cylindrical structure was built over 15 years ago, keeping the tales of Muppets and Jim Henson more alive than ever.

Kahn used re-purposed materials including slate, copper, aircraft-grade aluminum and redwood as well as local wood and bluestone to craft this cylindrical work of art that never seems to look the same way twice.

What is more incredible is that the structure is a fully functional and well-appointed 3-bedroom home ready to be lived in!

Each room appears as a complete universe of creative design, yet all of life’s necessities are present, along with notable whimsy… and art is layered upon art; a mix of materials and shapes, art and sculpture can be found everywhere on the home’s many decks, patios and grounds.

The tower house estate also includes a guesthouse, a sauna, a separate working studio and 3 other storage spaces on the 5.5 acre land, and is now listed at $1.2M.
