Kilkenny, Ireland: The ivy-covered Butler House and garden for Kilkenny Castle.

Kilkenny, Ireland: The ivy-covered mansion.

There are many different types of ivy for various uses.  This collection sets out a number of new and historic homes with ivy (or similar vegetation) growing on the exterior.  I use the term ivy mostly, but in some cases it may be something different such as bindweed.  For the sake of simplicity, ivy is used.

As you’ll see above and below, some have ivy covering every square foot while others “groom” the ivy to complement the other exterior.  You’ll also see somewhere the ivy has grown out of control.

Some people love ivy-covered houses while some people don’t like it all.  While we don’t have ivy on our home, we have a terrific ivy-covered wall adjacent to our patio which looks great.  Ivy is more commonly used for outdoor walls and structures instead of covering the home… but as you’ll see here, some houses do opt to let ivy be the predominant exterior.

Enjoy the collection below.
