The Anarchy and the Ecstasy

OK I’m back. This one from Pete F seems appropriate during the political turmoil. First, this hideous mausoleum of a house would be a worst anywhere, secondly it’s in Rockingham, and third, it has an anarchist symbol scratched into the concrete outside. No-one comes out of this looking good.

    …And potentially registered lawns!

    I’d always arrogantly assumed Rockingham was home of the bogan. I had no idea people of class and sophistication lived there too.


  3. rolly says:

    Hang on, Rockingham didn’t even exist (as a ‘locality’) in the 18th. century.
    Holy snappin’ Duckshit!
    Dr. Who, that’s what.

    classy as…


  5. David Cohen says:

    I wish I knew more architecture terms.

    What are the six pointy things on the roof?


  6. Pete says:

    I keep hoping the vines will flourish & make it look like a ruin.

    That central frieze-horses, chariots & swords. Can’t tell from the street if it’s Ramses or Ben Hur.


  7. Had a sudden thought. Is this Mark McGowan’s house? I know he has delusions of grandeur…


  8. Jaidyn-Jaxxon says:

    And yet for all its brooding balconies, the 3pm sun is still gonna fry those motherfuckers


  9. Knobski says:

    ‘…nestled between a truck differential heavy machine shop and a Tannery, this circa 2005 gem has a full strip of Fast Food outlets just 1 minute away. The discerning buyer also need not worry about convenient access to firearms outlets or $2 shops as Rockingham central is…’


  10. Ljuke says:

    All I can imagine is having a showdown with a badly disfigured (possibly albino) serial killer on the roof of that place. The whole thing ends with him impaled on one of those urns.


  11. Russell Woolf's Lovechild says:

    I’m no expert but I’d say this is an excellent example of early 21st century Greco-Bogan.

    Flash as a rat with a gold tooth.


  12. ronggly says:

    That looks like a copy of the Elgin Marbles. Can we get a close-up ? you might be able to see the genitalia of the boys riding the horses.

    I’ve driven past this house a million times. Stay classy Rockingham.


  17. Mar Bucknell says:

    They’re not finials, which are decorative turned wood spikes. Gargoyles are waterspouts. Grotesques are gobliny things to scare evil away. This house just has urns.


  18. This house is unique but its not ugly, at least it has symmetry. If you think this this bad then go to bicton…. That place is full of weird homes! One very ugly dark brown “wild west 1980” one in particular which beats all other houses on here. You haven’t seen ugly! This house is not it.
