More mountain than house, this is still the recognisable home of The Grinch, the mischievous anti-hero that appeals to anyone who gets a bit fed up of Christmas sometimes. Mount Crumpit is a fantastical lair filled with imaginative contraptions, and the imposing peak leers over the cheery town of Whoville, serving as a reminder to always remember the true meaning of Christmas.
The Household of Ebenezer Scrooge – A Christmas Carol
Ebenezer Scrooge - tight-fisted misery, or just energy efficient? The home of everyone’s favourite festive miser is memorable for all the wrong reasons.

The concept is so well realised, that it almost compels the audience to imagine the creative ways they might defend their home, in the unlikely event it was burgled by Joe Pesci.
