    Default Little Oak Place - Middlesex - Jan 2013 [Pic heavy]


    Little Oak Place

    I don't know a great deal about this property, other than what I learned whilst mooching around.
    I'm guessing it belonged to an asian family, and although basically a shell, still a very interesting visit for me.
    Has great potential, but effectively a building site requiring A LOT of work.
    It was a nice surprice to find an outbuilding on the land with a swimming pool and sauna!
    I found a copy of The Sun from 2004, and also some polish reading material dated 2007 which I guess belonged to squatters.
    The property is in a fairly affluent area on a road with around 50 other properties,
    with an average house price of 1.8m and the highest recorded sale at 2.5m for one property.
    Although not sure why this land is derelict, one can only assume that the owner either ran out of money
    or started his work without planning permission, however of course, there are 101 other possible reasons.
    As you'll see; the site has been vandalised, I can only be grateful that I don't think
    there was much here in the first place to be trashed.
    Sorry, I did try and reduce the amount of photos as much as possible



    1. Gated entrance from the road


    2. First glimpse of the house


    3. I hope you guys can appreciate just how big this house is


    4. Two front doors - One leading through the the first floor (ground level)


    5. The other leading to a staircase up to the second floor


    6. Not wanting to miss anything, I headed around the other side before going up stairs


    7. Curved stairs up


    8. Just about the only things in the main building that relates it to a habitable property


    9. Old eyeball light fittings, I can only presume these were removed from the building


    10. Maybe the builders left because they didn't have a good view of women to oggle at


    11. You can see just how secluded this site is, although near a main road


    12. So many large windows


    13. Some of the graffiti wasn't half bad


    14. The only way up to the third floor, there were no stairs *yet*


    15. Certainly needed a partner for this explore, and daylight I'm sure you guys can appreciate!


    16. I hope you don't mind heights


    17. ...and out on to the roof


    18. I might return in the summer to sunbathe (:


    19. Professional roofer required, any takers?


    20. Tiles supplied




    21. Trees, trees and more trees


    22. Back down to the 2nd floor, around the other side


    23. This is also your respawn point


    24. The builder's choice


    25. Heading out of the main building


    26. Onwards to the garage... the builders had thrown down their hats and gone home!


    27. An unusual door


    28. I spy a piano!


    29. Although severely blocked in by junk, I did manage to have a little go (:


    30. Around the back of the garage, there was another building with a nice surprise...


    31. Though I didn't fancy a swim for some reason


    32. Neither did I fancy lifting up the cover, the stench was pretty awful!


    33. A sauna for those stressful evenings after work


    34. The handsoap amused me, one of the only things in the house that was as it were left


    35. Sand filter for the pool, with a microwave (of course)


    36. & the boiler for the pool


    37. I'd recommend putting the shower upright before using it


    38. Polish squatters in 2007? Translation:"Curse of the passengers" ?

    Yeah, not sure who owns it or anything, but there's some serious money that's been practically thrown down the drain here!

    Nice find! I like that one.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    nice shots! cool looking place
    Those who destroy what's been left behind, are those ignorant enough to believe that history only belongs in museums and books.

    Looks like it could be a gorgeous house, thanks for sharing
    If there is a fence round it then it must be worth looking at !
