Rubjergknude light house is no longer in service. It is half covered in a sand dune. There used to be a cafe only a few years ago, but the pressure from the sand, broke the house. You can still see the remains of it.

One of my favorite homes, among the restored houses in the Heritage Hill historical district of Grand Rapids, is this "Stick House." It was built for a lumberman in 1892.

 

"Stick style" of architecture features steep roofs, elaborate roof brackets, and prominent boards that divide the wooden walls.

Strathleven House is an early 18th-century country house in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. It is located in the Vale of Leven. Built in 1700, it is probably the work of the architect James Smith, and has been described as "the earliest surviving example of the classic Palladian country house in Scotland". Strathleven House, and its 18th-century dovecote, are protected as category A listed buildings.

 

The Strathleven estate, then known as Kirkmichael, was owned in the 14th century by the Fleming family, passing to the Semples of Fulwood in the 17th century. In 1677 it was bought by the royalist William Cochrane, 1st Earl of Dundonald (1605–1685), who settled the estates of Strathleven and neighbouring Kilmaronock on his grandson William. This William married a daughter of James Graham, 2nd Marquess of Montrose, and sat in the Parliament of Scotland and the Parliament of Great Britain following the union of 1707.

 

A tower house may have existed on the estate at this time, but in 1700 William built the present house which he named Levenside. His initials and coat of arms are inscribed on the stonework of the building. The architect is unrecorded. It has been suggested that William Adam, Sir William Bruce, or Alexander McGill may have been responsible. However, on stylistic grounds James Smith is considered the most likely designer. The design of Strathleven has been compared to his houses at Newhailes near Edinburgh and Raith House in Kirkcaldy. The dovecote which stands nearby is considered to be contemporary with the house.

 

After William Cochrane's death in 1717 the house was sold to Archibald Campbell of Stonefield, a kinsman of the Duke of Argyll. In 1830 it was sold again, to Glasgow merchant James Ewing, who shortly after served as Lord Provost of Glasgow and Member of Parliament for Glasgow. He changed the name of the estate to Strathleven, and enlarged the estate substantially by the purchase of Dumbarton Muir from Dumbarton Town Council in 1841. He also made minor alterations to the house, as well as more significant additions to the grounds, including new stables. His widow lived in the house until 1900, when it was inherited by the Crum-Ewing family.

 

In 1947 Strathleven was compulsorily purchased by the Board of Trade.The area had been earmarked for redevelopment as a major industrial estate. By 1956, 2,700 people were employed at Strathleven Industrial Estate,but the house remained empty. Strathleven House deteriorated over subsequent decades, and in 1979 the interiors, including panelling and balustrades, were removed to storage to protect them from dry rot.

 

In 1985 the Scottish Historic Buildings Trust was established, partly in response to the need to save Strathleven House. The Trust succeeded in purchasing the house the following year, and repairs to stabilise the building and replace the roof were carried out between 1993 and 1996. A conservation plan was drawn up in 1997 for the full restoration of the house, which was completed in 2000. Since then the property has been leased by the Trust as serviced office accommodation and conference facilities.The 19th-century portico was re-erected as a folly at Broadwoodside, East Lothian.

 

The category B-listed coach house and stables, which are in the ownership of Scottish Enterprise, successors to the Board of Trade, remain in a derelict condition and are included on the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland.

The house sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a bird of the sparrow family Passeridae, found in most parts of the world.

The house sparrow is an opportunistic bird of towns and cities, parks, gardens and farmland. House sparrows feed on a variety of foods, including buds, grains, nuts and scraps, and will visit birdtables and feeders. They live in colonies and nest in holes or crevices in buildings, among Ivy or other bushes, and in nestboxes; they use a variety of materials to make their nests. Both parents will incubate the three to five eggs and raise the young. House sparrows are residents in the UK, but may disperse from their breeding grounds to feed on nearby farmland and grassland in winter.

House Sevastyanova - one of the most impressive, bright and memorable buildings in Yekaterinburg. The palace was built in the early 19 th century and as it did not, it has no equal in the whole Urals. This powerful and impressive building could be called neo-gothic, if not for the gingerbread coloring, green-white-red.

Hylands House was built around 1730, for Sir John Comyns; the original house was a red brick Queen Anne style mansion. Through the numerous ownerships and architectural changes the Estate became its largest in the Victorian era during John Atwood’s ownership. Now Hylands Estate is enjoyed by thousands of people that visit the Park and to use the house as a venue.

 

--------------------

 

Hylands House fu costruita intorno al 1730 per Sir John Comyns; la casa originale era un palazzo in stile regina Anna in mattoni rossi. Attraverso le numerose proprietà e i cambiamenti architettonici, la tenuta divenne la più grande in epoca vittoriana durante la proprietà di John Atwood. Ora la casa e la tenuta di Hylands sono apprezzate da migliaia di persone che visitano il Parco e usano la casa come luogo per eventi, incontri, cerimonie.

I feel so wrong to name it as 'House of leaves'. This is such a heart warming and approachable looking beautiful house by river. It cant be possibly named after a horrifying and nightmare inducing book. suggest me better name please.

Cuenca, Spain

 

The Casas Colgadas (Hanged Houses) is a complex of houses located in Cuenca, Spain. In the past, houses of this kind were frequent along the eastern border of the ancient city, located near the ravine of the river Huécar. Today, however, there are only a few of them remaining. Of all of these structures, the most well-known is a group of three with wooden balconies

Cragside House - Rothbury, described in 1880 as 'a palace of the modern magician'. Cragside House, Gardens and Woodland is a marvellous place to visit with it's superb gardens, woodlands, river and lakes. This unique place is now owned and cared for by The National Trust and situated just outside the village of Rothbury, in the heart of Northumberland. This was the family home of Lord Armstrong, Victorian inventor and industrialist.

 

So if you're a lover of wildlife, historical houses with fine antiques and beautiful gardens set in an outstanding Northumbria landscape....you'll probably love this! :)

 

Have a good day everyone, if in the UK, I do hope you're in a nice sheltered place today because although it's bright and sunny....it's blowing a hoolie here in my neck of the woods in Middle England.

Chatsworth House is a lovely historic house set in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire. Set on the banks of the River Derwent, this is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and has been the home of the Cavendish family since the 1550s.

 

This was our starting point today for our walk, along the river, past the house, up to the top of the woods passing the Hunting Tower ( just visible at the top of the woods) and then past the lakes and a long trek downhill back to the river and carpark... just before the heavy rain set in! A lovely walk of 4.5 miles.

 

A hailstorm set in as we left the carpark but within 5 minutes the sun was shining again :)

Actually not that old - this is a reconstruction. But it is a reconstruction of a Neolithic house, dating to around 4750-4500 B.C., based on excavations carried out at Irchonwelz, "Bonne-Fortune" site, Hainaut, Belgium. The house has a trapezoid plan, running east-west, measuring 32x6x3 metres. The house has wattle-and-daub walls covered with cob. The roof is covered with thatch and reed.

 

At the Archeosite - Aubechies-Beloeil, which both has a museum with many Roman finds and reconstructions of pre-historic housing and Roman buildings which would have been found in this part of the northern Roman empire.

In the house of snow

there are many ways to go.

 

Much like a house of mirrors,

one must find the right path

through the snow.

 

Left or right, around we go,

through the House of Snow.

 

In the forest's fun house its

good to know which way to go.

 

One dose not want to be lost

in the snow not knowing which

way to go.
