Two guest submissions of houses today. One from The Intellectual Bogan, who says…A Bavarian hunting lodge that has mysteriously been relocated to Chidlow, complete with concrete boar’s head gateposts. This place started out as a fairly inoffensive little coffee rock church, but, as you can see, has recently been overwhelmed by a strange, parasitic growth of turrets, false timber framing and pseudo medieval ironwork.
Local legend has it that the architect died (possibly of embarrassment) prior to completion, which might explain a lot. It is also rumoured that the boars’ heads were custom cast at great expense. Unfortunately I was unable to photograph the back of the house, but it has what appear to be a pair of matching (his ‘n’ hers? half timbered dunnies in the back garden.
And one from Val, who nominates this house in North Perth. I can see where you’re coming from Val, but I’m sure some will like this one. Maybe a couple of Boar’s heads would do the trick?
