Queenslanders

You are probably wondering, what is a Southern Belle doing posting about Queenslander Houses?

Well, for one thing, they are the Queensland, Australia’s equivalent to a Victorian. Developed in the 1840’s the style is still popular today.



They are usually set high off the ground.



They typically have high ceilings to allow for ventilation.




They have wonderful porches and outdoor spaces.
























With large open spaces, they are the original "open floor plan" house. The one below has been "updated."



Just like Victorians, they have their own variation and character. I much prefer this one:
























Open, white, and breezy.



Look at the faded beauty below......I just LOVE her.
What Mr. Deneen could do with this!!! I would so live here.
