Wow, that is an amazing house – must have looked real grand when it was new! I really like the first pic, of the door. Thanks for sharing these 🙂
You’re most welcome. Glad you found it interesting 🙂
That is amazing Conor and very interesting! Thanks
Glad you enjoyed it Phil!
Amazing door, won’t mind one like that myself 🙂
Glad you like it! I pass by it every day, today was the first time I had the camera and a couple of minutes to spare.
It certainly stands out among the Georgian houses on the street 🙂
Love old doors! Fun captures Conor.
Beautiful and odd all at once. Certainly unique. 🙂
Thanks John. So what do you make of the house then? 🙂
What is the story behind the house?
Hi Barbara. Don’t know how the following played out, but I can find out for you. House is the exact same anyway!
Incredible. I am sorry I missed it when I was in Dublin. A reason to go back!
There’s always lots of reasons to come back here 🙂
Wouldnt mind the door knocker but not sure about the rest though bit too crazy for my tastes.
It’s certainly not subtle 🙂
House looks great though, it’s so sad these buildings are just let fall into disrepair. At least this tenant looked after it. Would be good to know how the case came out. A job for the ‘occupy’ protesters 🙂
Nice photographs. “Conor’s back”…
Thanks Mary 🙂
Awesome! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a watercolor landscape…well since i posted one anywho, but you have inspired a spark my friend…let’s see what comes of it.
Thank you! Glad to hear it. Looking forward to seeing what comes of it 🙂
Is this a one-off and a private residence? I wonder what the neighbours think!
Yes and, I think, yes! I’ll have to do some investigating on this one I think 🙂 (i.e. knock on the door!)
nice one Conor
Amazing! I love the patterns and colours here. I wonder what kind of people live there.
It is very striking! There was an eccentric artist there for a long time, I’m not sure if he’s still there.
Very colourful! 🙂
It certainly does catch the eye! 🙂
Apparently the guy who lives there has been squatting there for decades. He’s an artist and has whole rooms that are “installations” One of them is just a room full of barbed wire. Most of the house is in disrepair apparently and he just maintains one section of it as a living area.
Cheers Paul, I could find nothing more recent than the Herald article. Now I want to go in and have a look 🙂
I always admire that building!!
It’s cool, isn’t it? 🙂
Yeah, in a what the heck is going to pop out of that kind of way!
Ha! I think I have to get inside now!
Looking forward to the photos!!
