Casa Boher, Santiago, Chile. [x][x]
seeing that post about the location used for Hannibal’s house by the sea made me decide to make a separate post about my headcanon house for hannigram in s4 ^ (even though I already rambled about it in another post) because frankly I am in love with the place.

The stream / waterfall it backs on to...

( which is visible from the glass-walled dining room; and those trees are eucalyptus, so it even smells relaxing. )

The Interior.

( imagine what they could do with this long glass hallway and some blood! )

( Hannibal could easily squeeze a harpsichord or baby grand in here )

( that upward-swooping roof on the left-hand side of the upper storey is the ceiling over the master bedroom; the whole room is like the seaside house! )

Plans. [x][x]

( and the plans also indicate that one of the building materials is travertine; the same stuff Hannibal’s kitchen counters and backsplash were made of back in Baltimore! )
.
So, to sum up:
  • It has the same Frank Lloyd Wright ‘Fallingwater’ vibe of Hannibal’s original choice. (which means 3 things:
    • 1 - they could play the most pretentious game of poohsticks ever,
    • 2 - their home is a literal bridge; symbolism up the wazoo,
    • 3 - someone could die in the top bit and an artistic curdle of blood could flow all the way down ...)
  • it also has a reflecting pool so Hannibal can do some lengths in the morning (since we know he swims; convenient excuses for him to be scantily-clad and wet about the house.)
  • decent-sized dining room with a great backdrop, but separate from the kitchen so Hannibal can still never not be killing people in there do his ‘wheel out and reveal the dishes’ ta-da.
  • the rough stone and the surroundings give it a woodsy vibe in deference to Will’s preference for log cabins (nice chunky chimney-piece & fireplace, just like the one his dogs slept around in Wolf Trap.)
  • private and secluded (for Will) but there’s lots of glass so he can still see and be seen from every possible room (for Hannibal).
  • if you did what they did with the original cliffside house you could say that the woods are on a steep hill overlooking the sea, leading down to a private cove or beach in Argentina/similar (so they still get their beach holiday/drinking-cocktails-out-of-skulls scenario.)
  • plenty of room for pianos and/or dogs
  • bedrooms are right next to each other for
    • delicious/angsty/slowburn/first-time fics,
    • Hannibal-is-being-punished-for-his-latest-fuck-up-with-sex-deprivation-and-is-pining-through-the-wall-at-Will-like-a-murdery-’do-you-wanna-build-a-snowman?’ comedy fics.
.
In conclusion:
Bienvenido a Casa Graham-Lecter.
