LOOK! 20 Of The Most Bizarre Houses In The World!

Updated on July 25, 2009

WOULD YOU LIVE HERE?

I have lived in some strange places, having had a Southern Baptist minister for a dad who uprooted us every two years, and my ex- spouses being of a very different cultures/races than mine. So I asked myself, would I live in these nutty places? Probably not, so would you be brave enough?

      The 21st entry was photoshopped so well that millions of suckers STILL think it's real.

      4th picture you do not know about are condos in a Montreal's suburb: Longueuil. It is call "Habitat 67". It is really expensive to rent one of those. Thank you for your post. I enjoy it.

      Sone of these are photoshopped. The first one that you state you don't know where it is located, is James Bond Island in Thailand. There are actually two versions of a house photoshopped on top of this island. The other has a castle on top and people claim it is Castle Tower in Dublin, Ireland. Both are fake.

      These houses are so much fun...and amazing. There is a mushroom house in the woods in my home town. People used to take their Sunday drives by it, just to get a glimpse.

      Hi, I love your bizarre houses. I've read about an other hobbit house:

      I never saw so many interesting homes, amazing what the human mind can think of. I can't imagine actually living in most of them, like from some other planet. Thanks for sharing! Voted Up and Interesting!

      Fallingwater is also known as "Falling Apart." Being set right over the water means it is VERY damp and cold, and constantly in need of extremely expensive repairs. No resident has ever really liked living there as a result

      These are really cool. Some of these (like that one Asian-looking house on the rock) are not real, I think. Something that precarious probably would have fallen into the water long ago.

      Wow, these range from really cool to really bizarre. I would definitely take the waterfall one, it was incredibly beautiful and the Nautilus House is stunning. 've always wanted a tree house like the one in Swiss Family Robinson.

      Great hub! Yes, Fallingwater is one of my fav's. I have A Frank Lloyd Wright hub in case anyone is interested. I have showcased many of these in various hubs I've done, but you absolutely found some great ones I hadn't seen. Cool architecture just does something to me. :)

      Crazy houses! Tom and I would SO live in that upside-down house, and the one that looks like it was cracked down the middle...but then, we're a little upside-down and cracked ourselves, so they just fit our personalities, hahaha!

      Great hub and wonderful pics!

      Bizarre, yet fascinating. A couple of them looked like they barely escaped the wrath of a tornado! My favorite was the house in Pennsylvania with the waterfall by far. Who wouldn't want to live there?

      Not interested. Too offbeat for my taste and some are just too small.

      I'd love to visit those houses, but to live in them? I don't think so. I'd be interested to see how those houses look inside though.

      Thanks for sharing.
