There are so many quirky features of the high Gothic property it would any do self respecting ghost proud.

Wow! They have done a remarkable job. Great post Kanacki!
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

Strange enough the house has been sold again after it doe up bought by some came back on the market and sold again. Was this alleged ghost influenced the new owner to sell?

I have more pictures of inside of the house.

Content that the history of house is preserved i wonder what of ghosts or alleged ghosts that haunt the place? Every owner never ever seem comfortable living there in the most gothic of gothic haunted houses in Australia.

The doctor that lived there before he died years ago experimented in contacting the dead. A big believer that the famous America Thomas Edison had an invention that could contact the dead.

 Edison's idea became known as a “spirit phone”, and caused a media storm. For years many historians believed the invention to be a joke or a hoax; no blueprints or prototypes of a spirit phone could be found. But while he may not have actually contacted the dead, there is evidence he experimented with the idea.

The doctor carried on with experiments. Was he successful? We never know for sure. But stories still circulate that the old doctor carried on experiments following in Thomas Edison's footsteps who died in 1931.

Speaking to loved ones beyond the grave may have appealed to the public, but for Edison this was a matter of strict science. Edison believed that life was indestructible, and that the “quantity could never be increased or decreased.” He theorized that like our bodies, our personalities have a physical form, made of tiny “entities” similar to our current view of atoms. He thought these entities might exist after humans passed away—a personality-based residue of loose memories and thoughts, containing part of who a person was during life.

If these particles existed, he reasoned, they could collect together in the ether around us. Possibly they could be amplified by his device like a human voice could be amplified and recorded by a phonograph.

According to Baudouin, Thomas Edison wrote plans and theories for these devices, though whether he actually built and tested one, and to what extent, is still unknown. He never named the machine, and referred to it as a “valve,” which was highly sensitive to vibration. Later sketches of Edison’s spirit phone by magazines depicted phonograph-like parts, including a fluted horn containing an electrode, thought by some to have been dipped in the conductive potassium permanganate. This horn was attached to a wooden box containing a microphone, which was would pick up the vibrations of these entities because of its extreme sensitivity.
