This style of house was common in Queensland early last century. Being raised off the ground allowed air to circulate under the house and keep the interior of the building cool. “Iron lace” was commonly used to enhance the appearance of the wide verandahs which shaded the floor to ceiling windows.

Top 10 in challenge in “Unique Buildings of the World” group.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.

    They are stately! Lived in one many moons ago! Didn’t have an attic in those days – at least not in ours. Modern addition???
