As i promise i came back on the other day to this wonderfull house, this time someone was there and some of the windows where open. A take some photos with this incredible light. And finally explored the rest of the house, it has some really big rooms, each one more beautiful than the other. I also got a lot of new information on the property.

You can read about the first visit here:

 

 

Now let's go see the house.

This is the dinning room, In here the family would dine with a wonderfull view of the river and the city on the other side, with their carved fireplace giving them warm.20180427_151300.jpg.e083b8f99facae3dc07d232accedde45.jpg20180427_151327.jpg.ab5e5bfd0160d14f2e82d6b42019355a.jpg

 This room is really big, around 3 to 3 and a half meter tall.

This is the most beautifull in my opinion. It would be the living room and also a place to entretain guests. It as a incredible fireplace with carved wood and as views to the front of the house and river, unfortunately the floor is full of pieces of chandelier.

This derelict chapel once hosted private prayers, the priest would come from the church every sunday to give it to the count's family.

This is the entrance hall, it has a wonderfull dome covering it, through this doors already passed princes, dukes, counts, Presidents and industry tycoons.

This stairs lead to the main bedroom, the iron work in beautifull.

Over the stair a rotten skylight let light shine on the old stairs.

This is the main bedroom, it as a balcony but is too exposed to the street, in here the last true count died 40 years after the monarchy was abolished.

This is the extension that where added to the house in the 30's

 

 

It's really a wonderfull house, a remainder of a far by gone era.

 

Hope you enjoyed.

Some very ornate looking pieces of furniture, fireplaces and light fittings there. Looks like a good little explore :)

Even nicer than the set from the first visit. The chapel is great, also the picture with the chimney and the chandelier.

      This is where Henry lived with his wife Mary and their only child, a daughter. Mary died a long time ago and Henry had to move in with his daughter who looks after him. He is 98 years old. After much persuasion he finally agreed that this, the family home must be sold. 
       
      Henry was a hard-working man with strong moral principles. He's been a prominent member of his local chapel all his life. Among his paperwork includes a certificate dated January 1940 confirming him on the register of Conscientious Objectors. Interestingly he must have had to attend a formal interview to justify his beliefs so had written prepared answers based on questions he thought the authorities might ask, along with character references.  Also there was a letter dated September 1976 congratulating him on 25 years service to the BBC as a gardener. 
       
      This is not just an abandoned house - its a home. In this home are meaningful and treasured possessions but also a home full of memories. This was a sanctuary from the outside world, a place to lead a simple life.

      Built in 1800s (?) .
      At least 800-900 m2 (?) .
       Large gated garden/grounds.
       Big garage & pool.
       On the banks of the river Seine.
       
       I'd like to know everything about the
       house(/place) what is there to know -
       in details. (My guesses are only estimates. Google Maps & Earth don't
       give much to work with).
       
       Someone could set an expedition on the site ; possibly with a drone ?

      After the Brownsville General Hospital relocated to its new location in 1965, the former buildings were converted into the Golden Age Nursing Home.
      Due to the normally full capacity of the Brownsville General Hospital, 
      the hospital relocated. Shortly after its closing, The Horner Nursing Home/Golden Age Nursing Home was made/built in 1929 and closed in 1985 due to reports of horrible conditions and treatment of its patients.
      The nursing home was a residence for some of the nurses who worked at the hospital. It later became a care facility for the elderly.

      The Brownsville General Hospital opened in 1914 but wasn't completed until 1916, and closed in 1965. 
      The hospital was always at full capacity and thus, an addition was made to create a third level over the central section of the building and raised the hospital’s capacity to 100 beds.
      Due to the capacity, the hospital was then relocated. Shortly after the closing of the hospital, The Horner Nursing Home/Golden Age Nursing Home was made/built in 1929 and closed in 1985 due to reports of horrible conditions and treatment.
