This five-story home in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, is one of the most beautiful homes we've ever seen.

The house sits on a 14 acre lot filled with giant live oak trees.
It stands at 66 feet high and even has a moat.

Each floor is one large octagonal room and a wooden spiral staircase takes you from floor to floor.
 
The symmetrical home opens to a formal dining room, living area and kitchen, while the second and third floors each feature a bedroom suite.

I wonder how they control the mosquitoes in that moat...

And somebody should tell them that blue-green algae is a health hazard..

I doubt any fish could live well in that 'moat'.

You hit the nail on the head.  Louisiana is a beautiful state...wonderful.  And that architecture is beautiful.  But all that came to mind when I saw the moss on those cypress trees, was slapping my forearm from sooo many mosquitoe bites.

Ehhh...and that open air bedroom is a dining hall for the little buggers!  Rolling Eyes

Wolf, that’s exactly what I said!
It is a beautiful-looking home though.

Basketball

The S.E. corner of Queensland and the 'Northern Rivers' region of NSW have a similare climate to Louisiana, South Carolina and Florida.

Beautiful weather (apart from occasional cyclones..) from Autumn through to Spring -- but their long, wet (and mozzie-ridden) summers can be a real drag..

Hence why you can find a lot of people living there when they're younger, but moving back to cooler climes as they grow older...
