It's actually the charming little house occupied by the St Stephen's Green park keeper in Dublin
Some of you may recognize this old house. I recently took another trip back, and the man who owns it was mowing the grass. So.... I got a little history.
The Guyitt house was built circa 1845 and purchased by the current owners grandparents Roy and Ethel Guyitt. Their children a son and a daughter remained in the home until the daughter passed away in 2003. At that time the grandson Pete purchased this home to keep in his family. He does maintain the exterior as best as can be, there have been wedding photos taken here among other countless stories he was happy to share ~ thank you so much Pete
Still away but trying to keep up, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, it's sunny here in Nova Scotia today, a great day for adventures
One of the restored mill houses in Glencoe Village.......
Yallum House is situated 8km west of Penola in South Australia,on the Millicent Road is the magnificent two storey homestead, built for John Riddoch 1878-1880. Yallum Park is said to be the best-preserved Victorian House in Australia in its original condition. It features one of the largest collections of wallpapers and also consists of Italian hand-painted doors and original furnishings and fixtures, it's beautiful gardens and arboretum, its cavernous 15-feet high ceilings, its eleven Italian marble mantelpieces, its gold leaf cornices and its sense of history. It was here that the English novelist Anthony Trollope stayed and where a passing parade of Governors and Princes (including King George V when he was still the Duke of Cornwall) spent the night. And out the back is the old Yallum Park house where Adam Lindsay Gordon used to stay when he visited John Riddoch.
Behind the main Yallum House are two smaller residences. One called Gordon House and the other Austin House. These were the original houses. It was in the place now known as Gordon House that Adam Lindsay Gordon came to stay. Penola, South Australia, Australia.

Former Bodnant Gardens owners house. Still occupied but the gardens now belong to the National Trust
When you drive across the surrounding park and see Chatsworth House for the first time, a sumptuous pile of yellow stone surrounded by gardens, fronted by the River Derwent and backed by a tree-covered hillside, it fairly takes your breath away. It is not hard to see why this is the premier tourist attraction of the area.
The original house here was the work of Sir William Cavendish and his third wife Bess of Hardwick in the mid 16th Century. Sir William was a Crown Commissioner responsible for dissolving monasteries and his reward was a gift of land here. Sir William died in 1557 with the house partly constructed and Bess completed a house with a central courtyard and four corner towers, facing east towards the hillside. No trace of this can now be seen, but the modern house retains many of the Elizabethan interior walls and the Huntingtower on the hill above the house dates from the 1580s.
The first Duke rebuilt Chatsworth in Classical style between 1686 and 1707, using an obscure Dutch architect called William Talman. He later fired Talman and the house was completed by Thomas Archer.
The Library and North Wing were added by the 6th Duke between 1790 and 1858, the work of Wyatville, and the stables and bridges over the River Derwent were added in the 18th century by Paine. The park was landscaped by the 4th Duke (1720-1764), who engaged 'Capability' Brown to reshape the formal garden into the more natural one you see today.
The 6th Duke engaged Joseph Paxton as the head gardener at the age of 23, resulting in the enrichment of the gardens and the creation of the Emperor Fountain (to impress the Czar of Russia when he visited) as well as the Great Conservatory. Paxton worked at Chatsworth the rest of his life, staying for 32 years. The house and gardens have remained little changed since this time, the only major exception being the demolition of the Great Conservatory and its replacement by a maze.
Many famous people have come to Chatsworth, some to stay and others to live there. Among the most famous are Mary Queen of Scots, who was here as a guest and prisoner of Bess of Hardwick and her fourth husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury, between 1573 and 1582. Another was Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who lived here in a famous 'menage a trois' with the 5th Duke and Lady Elizabeth Foster in the late 18th century.

The Castle House - An old House in Sintra (Portugal ) near the train station. When i see it i just imagine this scenery !! The lamp was transform to give a retro gothic mysterious element, and also the monk in the window ! The Shadow on the wall house was based on the famous Sculpture by Katharina Fritsch "The Monk" (1997-99).

After posting a couple of dreary winter scenes in a row, I've decided to go back to a fall image with a bit of warmth to it.
I know nothing about these abandoned homes on a farm south of Laporte, Saskatchewan. I can only speculate on why the two houses were built so close together. Perhaps one is the old house and the other is a newer one. Perhaps the newer house was for an offspring of the farmers. In any event, both are empty and forgotten now. I thought it was kind of odd for that truck to still be there, considering it has considerable collector value.
After several sweet, little bird pictures, I wanted to do something a little more dramatic so I got out today and went to this little shotgun house I've driven by a million times. For those of you who don't know, a shotgun house is a small frame house and if you fired a gun through the front door, the bullet would travel straight out the back door. Hope that makes sense. It's a southern thing.
Anyway, it's been abandoned for sometime and the paint is peeling and there's poison ivy covering one side of it. The kind of house only us photographers would love!
Textures a combination of Kerstin Frank. Thanks!
A bakhuisje is the outbuilding of a farm or ranch in which they baked bread and cake. In the bakhuisje is the oven. In the modern age in most cases the bakhuisje disappeared from the yard.
Usually, the oven was built separate from the house and other outbuildings in the yard. This was to prevent the burning of the whole farm when there was a fire outbreak in the oven (WIKIPEDIA)
The current house was built in 1790 but remodelled extensively in 1867. It was remodelled again in the Neo-Georgian style by Trenwith Wills and Lord Gerald Wellesley for Ralph Dutton between 1936 and 1939 to his vision of what it would have been like had it been built on its current scale in 1790 – a Georgian country house. It was badly damaged by fire in 1960, and restored again much as it had appeared in 1936.
The Scottish capital has an astonishing number of houses made of stone, probably due to the abundance of it in the area. The best thing is, the colours of the stones change with the weather. Imagine having a different looking house with every season!
