The Scarfies Flat – 49 Brown Street

It’s commonly known as “The Scarfie’s flat”, although it doesn’t have a sign. 49 Brown Street is best known for it’s role playing a strong, silent, sinister character in the 1999 Sarkies brothers’ film, Scarfies. It can be found stolidly anchored in dilapidated grandeur, glowering over the city of Dunedin from Cannongate.

The house had a group page on Facebook which unfortunately seems to have been taken down. It was frequented by past residence and there were several mentions of hauntings which was interesting.

Below, is a photo of a graffito of the house itself on the wall which supports the Cannongate Steps. Source.
