This house seemed to come on the urbex scene then vanish.I was asked along on a visit here early March 2017.It was indeed a very interesting explore due the massive content of personal affects left behind as you will see.I understand the house was built 1865 and in the last few decades was converted into four flats.Each flat had a piano and we counted at least six pianos throughout!

The house belonged to Doctor Annette Drummond-Rees and I reckoned she was a shopaholic as all over this house in the last few years was bags of china ornaments that was purchased from charity shops,but the thing that surprised me was it appeared she simply put the bag on the stairs unopened never to be looked at again.Lets show you what I mean...

The House



Part of the conversion has already started falling down



A few old cars have been left to rot



In the hallway we see the first of many many places to sit



The good Doctors lounge or at least one of them!



One of six pianos



Another lounge



Heading upstairs now



The sight that greeted us on the landing..flats 2 and three with spare pianos ..more pianos later



Those shopping bags containing ornaments from charity shops were strewn on every stair



One of my fellow explorers got this to play the Dambusters record..a most surreal thing to hear from a distance



I loved this arched window atop of the stairs



Flat 2`s lounge..yes another piano!



Flat 2 bedroom



Dr Fox



Flat 3 lounge..yep,complete with piano



We are now in the attic rooms now



Attic bedroom..looked pretty comfortable



And lastly,some essential bedtime reading..



Well that was Mountfield House folks,if you want a more concise walk through,the rest can be seen yer below

Awesome looking place, not often a UK manor comes up on the radar as good as this  (y)  Always nice to see a mangy looking stuffed fox lol.

Oh and I think we know someone who might like another Triumph Acclaim!!

Even if quite in a mess, still very nice and interesting. Great with the many pianos and the lot of details.

I really love that fireplace, very decorative and those balustrades are stunning! Amazing what treasures these places hide away! Thanks for sharing :)

What a cool looking place mate and well shot. Loads to see in here by the looks of it  (y)

That flag looks like it could have been at Waterloo.

I apologize if I missed this somewhere but, is there an explanation as to why she left the property this way? Did she leave abruptly or just too much stuff?
