Well i wouldn't call this house that beutiful, but it is interesting
It hasn't got any stair, you just can get to the second floor by climbing the poles. You ought to feel uncomfortable and always be in motion

The two architects believe that living in too much comfort causes early death so they make these houses that are difficult to navigate on purpose--it keeps our bodies and minds on our toes, they say

Cragside is a country house near Rothbury in Northumberland, England. It was the first house in the world to be lit using hydroelectric power. Built into a rocky hillside above a 4 km² forest garden, it was the country home of Lord Armstrong and has been in the care of the National Trust since 1977.
Cragside, named after Cragend Hill above the house, was built in 1863 as a modest, two-storey country lodge, but was subsequently extended to designs by Norman Shaw, transforming it into an elaborate mansion in the Free Tudor style. At one point, the building included an astronomical observatory and a scientific laboratory.

In 1868, a hydraulic engine was installed, with water being used to power labour-saving machines such as laundry equipment, a rotisserie and a hydraulic lift. In 1870, water from one of the estate's lakes was used to drive a Siemensdynamo in what was the world's first hydroelectric power station. The resultant electricity was used to power an arc lamp installed in the Gallery in 1878. The arc lamp was replaced in 1880 by Joseph Swan's incandescent lamps in what Swan considered 'the first proper installation' of electric lighting.
The generators, which also provided power for the farm buildings on the estate, were constantly extended and improved to match the increasing electrical demand in the house.

The house is surrounded by one of Europe's largest rock gardens, a large number of rhododendrons, and a large collection of mostly coniferoustrees, among which one Douglas-fir is the tallest tree in England, at 59 m tall.

I believe the weather can change the perspective we have of a house. For instance, this last house can be very spooky at night, or if the weather is greyish. But imagine if there is this beautiful sun, and birds, and all the trees around it - like *Gius* said, it would look like a fairytale house.

However, I have this thing for creepy houses! ahah I love them. Because they usually allow your imagination to make things up, and everything is so mysterious
