This Is The Most Isolated House You Have Ever Seen!

This is the most isolated house you will ever see and it is amazing!

The perfect place for you to movie in if you dislike your noisy neighbors or you just don’t want neighbors at all.

Either way, this is the place to be. Where? The house is located on the Vestmannaeyjar Archipelago on Ellidaey Island, Iceland.

If you choose to move on the island you will be as isolated as it gets. On the island is only one lonesome house, which means you’ll be alone with your own thoughts.

The house is often referred to as the most isolated or the most secluded home in the world, and is easy to understand where the names come from.

Roughly 300 years ago five families lived on the remote island. The isolated house was originally built as a lodge for puffin hunters, which is (oddly) surrounded by a fence.

Now that we have established that no neighbor will be bothering you, we must talk about the views the house offers you.

Because is located on the beautiful island of Elliðaey the island surrounds itself with breathtaking landscapes. And birds.

People still believe that story with five families who lived here from the hunting of birdsand livestock raising.

But then life stood in the way of their happiness and the families needed to move. Because life so detached from civilization has become very impractical they had to move, and so the island remained abandoned.

And so by the 1930s the house was abandoned and they left the island.

Sadly not a great deal is known about the island or the house that sits upon it however some sources claim it is now simply used as storage, though for what remains uncertain.

Lately rumors are circulating that the Iceland’s government gave this island to the singer Bjork for putting the country on the international radar, however, we don’t have substantial proofs that it happened.

Then, in the decades following, the former residents of Elliðaey found there weren’t better places for hunting puffins.

They wanted to return, so a lodge was built on the island for them to use during puffin hunting missions.
