I ve past this house for years.always had a car in drive way..then months ago no more car...i went to take a look.....the back dor had a latch i opened the latch and the whole door came off..big heavy door almost crushed me...well im in..i thought
The door to the left lead to the basement..it was sealed tight...got a feelng it was flooded
seems like theres some attempt at restoration
thats a nice fireplace
this is the olderist calander still hanging ive seen..odd its the same month 47 years later
its always funny when the soap is still in the soap dish
at the top of the stairs i found this..gaping hole a long drop into the basement
i built a little bridge over it
century old framed photos and a 1983 natasha kinkski playboy
this must be the master of the house
he musta been a professor
and a surgeon
now i gotta figure out getting down over the hole.......I only got a female voice and it was outside...saying something...something..talks to you
Meanwhile, this Italian villa of a football coach is pretty well known, and several things has changed there.
Only a dusty dirt road leads to it and from outside the house looks quite inconspicuous. But once again proves: Don't judge a book by its cover...!
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.
