    Default Old Victorian House, Southampton.




    I adore this old Victorian detached house and always have. I think there was a very elderly person living in it until very recently. It has since been boarded up and there are signs of vandalism in the following photos which is very sad. I just hope it doesn't get bashed down by developers.




    Back of property. (Note old tile floor).


    Back of house. On zooming right in on the upstairs window you can make out an old tassel lampshade.


    Outside toilet.







    Outside toilet and someone's personal belongings.





    Outside toilet door handle.



    Some sort of large shed.







    Back windows and back of property.












    Old tiles at back of building.



    Back garden






    Garage/outside building













    VERY old Women's magazines. The woman's weekly is from 1973.



    Woman's Realm Magazine from 1974.



    Greenhouse.



    Looks like the Chavs have been burning something!

    Old tiles at front of property.

    This place has only recently been sold at auction, I think for 300,000. Apparently there was some fire damage. I've always loved this place when I drive past, bet it's packed with origional features. Just hope they get a move on with the renovations before it gets trashed!!!

    Oh right. How long was it empty for? Whenever I went past I assumed some elderly folks lived there as everything looks really old and there was no vandalism until recently. Hope someone does it up rather than build flats there. If you have any other details can you pm me as this house has fascinated me for the last 12 years.

    I am gutted about not getting a look inside, especially now it's been sold so I missed the viewing opportunity but I will keep my eyes peeled.

    You could always see if you can contact whoever now owns it and explain that you'd love to see inside it before it all inevitably gets ripped out

    I contacted the place who auctioned it to see how much info I could find out, doubt they would be able to tell me who bought it though for data protection reasons.

    Nice property, nice report, and good use of flash
    My biggest gripe is that the 'Womans Magazine' wasn't what I thought it would be!
