Eliphante & Hippodome
Called the Eliphante house for the look of its entrance, this sculptural home was created by artist Michael Kahn and his wife Leda Livant with found materials over a period of 28 years. Eliphante and several outbuildings occupy 3 acres of land and incorporate rocks and scraps from construction sites. There was never any kind of floor plan for Eliphante ? it just sort of evolved. Ms. Livants residence on the property is the Hippodome, a mosaic-covered creation that looks like a hippo emerging from a lake.
