I never even knew this building existed until I recently blundered across a picture of it whilst roaming the internet and was struck by its weird, fairy tale quality. You almost expect Hansel and Gretel to emerge from it before going for a roam in the woods.

Apparently, it was built in 1896 and was once a centre for disabled children before being restored in the 1990s to its original purpose as a private residence.
