AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

This house at Rye on the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula overlooks Port Philip Bay.
It looks like a layer cake of windows!

Hello Gemma, thank you for visiting me at sparrowchatter. I love your layer cake house. It is the kind of place that you may need a red ball of twine, to find your way back to the rooms you left.

Is that really all one house?! Amazing! They must really enjoy the sunlight and views!
I'm so excited to see that my button works - yay! Thanks so much for participating!

I think I might get lost inside this house! But I assume the architect has taken full advantage of the different angles of the sun.

It makes me think of somebody who started building run out of money, added a piece when he had money again etc etc, lol !
What a house !



A place of beauty in the Western Tiers
