It's giant butterflies on the outside of the house that gives it away

I thought seeing giant butterflies just meant you were stoned? And Pompous Grass, well we had to cut ours down because little, black heads kept popping up in the middle of it... I thought they might be swingers but upon closer inspection they just turned out to be members of the "Wherethefcukarewe" tribe...

I read somewhere that you should periodically burn your pampas grass to get rid of the dead stuff in the middle........bad idea. 15-20 foot flames and the neighbours all had to move their cars whilst him next door got his hosepipe out. Their bush got a bit scorched.

On topic, I've never seen a house in more dire need of a volume control.

This is such a strange place... o_O

The decor/style (or should I say lack of?) is so awfully done I think it's actually pretty cool in it's own weird way. The more pictures I saw of this place, the more I laughed - it made me smile anyway, so therefore I like it. :)

*Runs outside and digs up the pampas grass...*

1st post!! :)

What a bizarre place - is there a wall set-up as a projection-screen anywhere inside this place?

Serious question, for a bizarre reason.. :)

Maybe some sort of Spa or Health place or as someone said, a Hotel.

Very interesting nethertheless. Did you look in the 'hidden door'?

Just looked at it on street view, looks like they tried hard to keep things private so I'm going with the theory of saucy things happening here.
Interesting place though, wish I had the money for it.

I see I’m like 10 years late on this post 🤣 but came across it and I know this house! My parents used to work for the chap who lived here and I spent a lot of time here! And some of the comments about the house aren’t too far off the mark!!
