Most Peaceful House In The World
Photograph - Fine Art Photography
Escape the Rat Race. Vestmannaeyjar, or Westman Islands, Iceland, is where this lone house stands, with only seagulls and other ocean wildlife for company.
This solitary house is located on Ellidaey Island, which is part of the Vestmannaeyjar group just off the south coast of mainland Iceland. It is not actually a regularly inhabited house, but a hunting lodge in use during puffin hunting season (they're cute, but they're not rare!). The house has no electricity and no internal plumbing, but it does have a sauna for those cold Icelandic nights (and can you imagine a better place to watch the northern lights from!).
Three hundred years ago, five families did live on this remote island, living on cattle they raised on the island and the abundant fishing in the area. However, during the 1930s, the last permanent residents moved away, as the island became increasingly impractical to survive on. The hunting lodge as it now stands was built in 1953, and is not open to public, but used exclusively by those who built it, the Ellidaey Hunting Association.
Thanks to Spot Cool Stuff for information on the lone house of Iceland (http://travel.spotcoolstuff.com/iceland/secluded-architecture/ellidaey-island).
