House of my Dreams

(Susannah Bird)

*sigh* I wish I wish I wish New Zealand had streets that looked like this.

Do any of my lovely readers live in a house like one of these? So pretty, I'm jealous.

  6. I like these house too. There are quite a lot of similar houses around where I live, but they are not as grand. More one-level, but a very similar style. I always look at them when I go past on the bus.

  14. I would love to live in that San Francisco's street... I love these houses since I first saw them when I was just six =) These pictures make them look even better. I live in an apartment in Madrid, that looks nothing like that!
    I'm sure your house in New Zealand is decorated the loveliest way possible (better than those in the inside), I can tell that by your blog =)

    PL ♥

  18. I don't live in one of these, but my father grew up in one. He was born and raised in San Francisco and I always loved to visit that house as a kid. Unfortunately my grandma died when I was fairly young and it's been some time since I've seen that particular house... I'd love to own one at some point.

  19. awe. we always wish for what we don't have. I live in San fran. I live in a victorian. Not quite as pretty as those. But I always wish I could live in New Zealand. I had a very quick visit and thought it was so beautifuL!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh yes, these are amazing! I've always wanted to live in a tall, skinny, old townhouse with turrets and iron lace. It could happen!

    ReplyDelete

  23. Did you notice that weird light effect on the upper level of the pink house, 1st photo? I wonder if that house is haunted? ;)

  24. meee tooo!

  25. You live in New Zealnd?! I'm so jelaous, meybe New Zealand doesn't have super old and victorian architecture, bu it does have beautifoul scenary, you know here in England its not hard to find old victorian hauses(they're kind of everywhere in my Town)but its hard to find such a beautifoul scenary as in New zealand. If i were to choose one i would pick New Zealnd. The look I could alvays imagine...
