SkyCityMint, that looks like it came straight out of my catalogue of 19th century American house designs! Mostly Gothic Revival. Been dragging the thing around with me for over 40 years, and every now and then it comes to the surface and has a look through.

I love it. I had a friend with a house similar to it growing up. His grandfather owned a construction company and built it to be used as a boarding house for his employees. It sat right in the middle of about 10 acres of woods near a big city.

 They are groovier than the Maunsel forts.  I could well imagine setting up an HQ on one of those light houses.

Nothing is groovier than the Maunsell Army forts, although these lighthouses come close, and are for sale.

Along with my own castle, I've always wanted a lighthouse! One of my childhood dreams was to be a lighthouse keeper, although they don't seem to have those anymore, and I couldn't handle the stairs now!

Speaking of lighthouses:


Not really on topic, but I'm assuming that I'm not the only one that needs cheering up.

I moved this post from geographical, realizing these were not buildings, but rather houses. Perhaps this post belongs here. I can see a couple of people liking the idea of living in this neighborhood :

Walking in Hyde Park, Austin, just north of the University of Texas downtown. Not necessarily Victorian, but there are a few genuine Victorian homes, as the neighborhood dates back to 1892. There was a revival in the 1940s, as residents transformed bungalows into fairytale homes. You can see some of the older Victorian influences in the 1940s houses.









Some of the local watering holes for students, Dolce Vita Gelato and Liqueur, Hyde Park Café (giant fork), ASTI's Trattoria and Quack's bakery, not shown is Antonelli's Cheese Shop, and Mother's Cafe.
