LTD: APPRECIATE THE BANYAN
The Banyan House in Second Life is not a brand new release. The home, masterfully created by Eliza Wierwight of PATRON has been on the market for a few weeks now but we at LTD finally got the opportunity to visit this work of art in world and boy were we impressed.
Eliza is no newcomer to creating beautiful homes. The Patron House, released a few years ago, was a tremendous success and widely popular among the Home & Garden community. Her level of detail, eye for beautiful textures and exquisite furnishings compliment both that home, and the new Banyan House incredibly well.
The Banyan is not just ”another prefab” on the grid, it is a work of art. This is easily one of the most unique and beautiful residential builds that you will see in Second Life. Yes, we said it! Now there are a few things you need to know about this home before rushing out to buy it. Firstly, we highly recommend you check it out in world before looking to purchase. Explore it, view it in both day and night, get a good feel for it to make sure this is a right fit for you. Secondly, it is important to know that this home DOES NOT come furnished, however, it does include the following (taken from http://www.elizawierwightpatron.com)

This home comes with Copy Only permissions and has a total land impact of around 2100. This land impact includes everything listed above and although this may be considered a high land impact these days in Second Life, it is truly worth every prim. Now, the cost? This build isn’t cheap, but something as beautiful as this never will be. The build costs $L30,000, and although you may think that seems too high, you really must follow our advice and view this model in world for yourself to understand the true beauty and work that has gone into the creation of it.
We may be late jumping on the bandwagon of drooling over this gorgeous creation by Eliza Wierwight, but we just had to share this with our readers. Those of you who truly appreciate art, architecture and beautiful creations in Second Life really must visit the in world model and see it for yourself if you haven’t already, whether you purchase it or not. If you are looking for that one residential build that is so unique nothing can compare, this is the one.
