Hobbit House In Wales, UK
I’ve always thought that it would be cool to live in a fairy tale house. The author’s descriptions always make them sound so unique and interesting. The builder of this house seems to have gotten Tolkein’s idea down very well.
Stone House in Portugal
This stone house doesn’t really look like it would be too out of the norm inside, but it is pretty cool looking on the exterior and I would think it’s pretty indestructible from most natural acts.
The Seashell House in Mexico
I think it’s safe to say that you’d have to pay attention to what you were grabbing in this place, there’s so many sharp edges.
Nautilus House in Mexico
I really like this place. It has a whole ’60’s thing going on. I especially like the stained glass windows.
Akebono Kodomo-no-mori Park in Japan
A lot of different levels here, looks like 4 at least and it’s probably cool too with the grass growing on the roof.
Forest House in Netherlands
The vines growing all over give this oddly shaped house a little extra something.
Tiny Victorian Cottage in the Catskills, New York
This place is adorable. I love the bed in the loft and the bookshelves. I’d have to change the color of everything though, white and I just don’t get along.
Teahouse Tetsu in Yamanashi, Japan
I’m not seeing the entrance to this place but the cherry blossoms would smell sweet while you were figuring it out.
Abandoned Wooden House in Russia
Looks haunted to me. I’d say Hansel and Gretel except I don’t think that witch’s house was anywhere near as elaborate.
Traditional House in Iceland
This place looks like it was dug from a hillside. Natural insulation seems to be a theme with some of these houses.
Dome Home in Thailand

The large circular windows with window seats are nifty, but I don’t think that position would be comfortable for long.
Rustic Way Whimsical House in Minnesota
Other than the really steep roof this reminds me more of a log cabin than something out of a fairy tale but I guess that’s enough to group it in that category.
Maison de Sorcière Avec Ciel d’orage in France
The railings here are really unique and the stone work is too. That dome with the lightning rod tops it all off.
Crazy House in Vietnam
This one really makes me wonder how it was made. Looks like it’s concrete and if that’s so that means some crazy type of forms were involved.
Fairy Tale Cottage in Canada

I think it would be awfully dark on the inside here. Even with those two leaded glass windows I doubt much light filters through.
Three Story Treehouse in British Columbia, Canada
Although I really love tree houses, having to climb all those steps from one level to the next would be way too many to make this a viable home for me.
So what about you? Do you think you’d like to live in any of the houses pictured here? If I were able to pick one it would be the Nautilus House.
