Spite Houses

29 May 2015

Houses aren't always built with the sole purpose of providing comfortable shelter. Sometimes, houses are either built or decorated to deliberately upset a relative, neighbour, or a city council.

A disgruntled home owner in England painted the facade of her house in lurid red and white stripes, after neighbours successfully objected to her planed home redevelopment.

Situated in the exclusive London are of Kensington Mews, Zipporah Lisle-Mainwaring painted her house to clash with the other sedate Georgian townhouses in her street.

Lisle-Mainwaring had plans to demolish the three-storey house and replace it with a much larger home with an underground swimming pool, but her plans were rejected following neighbourhood complaints.
