Amazing Stoneworks – Living in a boulder!

BoulderhouseSituated in Northern Portugal among the Fafe mountains, A Casa Do Penedo ” The House Of Stone”  is potentially the house I would most like to live in! Built to include a swimming pool and fireplace, The House Of Stone is a masterpiece of understatement. From a distance the house looks like no more than an enormous bolder but on closer inspection, you are able to make out windows and tiny chimney. Please see below for another image of the other side of the house.

This house is another example of the aesthetic pleasure that can be derived by the imitation of natural shape and design using man made techniques. The house, originally built in 1974 as a family retreat is fast becoming a tourist attraction but the family will always be safe inside as it is equipped with bullet proof windows and a steel door!
