Once upon a time, in the 1950s, two brothers quarreled over a plot of land they inherited from their father.
One of the brothers, who was left with a weirdly shaped tiny plot of land, decided to build this very thin building on it just to block his brother’s view from the sea.
Hence, the building is called “Al Ba’sa” in Arabic, which, I guess you can say translates to “The Grudge” (to say it politely here).
#5 Greek Temple
This homeowner went all out for his humble abode channeling the Greeks who once took on the Phoenicians of Lebanon… and rule the world.
Guess where it’s located? Miziara – again. Seems like a fun village!
#6 The Lone Wolf
Let’s start by saying there’s nothing bizarre about this house. It’s gorgeous, classic, and traditional!
However, it stands in the middle of nowhere, all alone, built over a small hill of rocks, kind of inspired by the ancient Mseilha Fortress.
It seems the owners really value their privacy in their Tannourine villa.
#7 Tiny Island House
In the middle of Taanayel Lake, there’s this little tiny island and, on it, is a small shed-like house and it belongs to ducks! How cute!
