More on the forest house
Replying to the Anonymous post, the house is brick-built on some old stone foundations. No-one knows how old it really is. I managed to see some old maps of the area but the oldest is from 1876 - when there is a house marked at the spot. But to be honest what really drew me to the place is its beautiful location, its position backing onto the forest, the 2 acre garden with some fruit trees, and fantastic bird-life. (and lots of mole-life too... I think Czecho must have more moles per metre than any other country :-)) I knew it would take work and money to renovate the house but the location is worth it.
