My hometown Gem


The town/suburb I grew up in has some hidden gems.

There is this beautiful old house, I only recently discovered.

It is hidden behind a newer building.


It is from 1689


The details


Beautifully done with carvings and tiles.




Look at those detailed tiles.

I lived there for 23 years and only discovered this now.

Well, at least now I walk around with my eyes open 🙂

  1. Absolutely charming, right out of a fairytale! Truly a masterpiece! Imagine living in a house like that! I’m glad you discovered it and shared it with us! 🙂


  2. Thank you for zooming in on the intricate details — it shows the difference between what a craftsman can accomplish vs. a worker. Do you know if anyone lives there now? We’re you able to get a peak inside?

    • Yes indeed. There are people living in it, so I didn’t see inside unfortunately! I am sure it is hard to maintain an old house like this as often you are not allowed to change any features.

  3. Oh my gosh! I love this house! I also love the idea of imagining all of the different clothing styles that lived in that house. All of the lives lived there, connected for having breathed there, eaten there, slept there. THe dramas and the joys. Lovely!

Love to hear from you......
