As I promised, I've saved the very best house, from Austin's Weird Homes Tour, for last. There was one other we went through but I'm going to skip it. Not because it wasn't nice, but because it was too nice, and didn't really count as a weird house in my book. It was actually a multimillion dollar McMansion built to look like a castle -- not all that unusual amongst the weenie-wagging set. In fact, someone just built one here in Wimberley. On top of the highest peak, of course, looking down on everyone else. Nope, I'll take color-mad, eco-conscious Casa Neverlandia over that any ol' day!
There are rope bridges leading from the master bedroom porch at the top of the house over to the woodworking and art spaces behind the house, and the treehouse aerie above them.
One of the owners does these beautiful beaded pieces, on display throughout the house...
but know what I like even better? This!
I'd seen pictures of this place many times, but nothing compares to seeing it up close and personal -- which is why I've added Barcelona to my Bucket List. Senor Gaudí is calling my name!
