    Default Keepsake House - Feburary 2017


    Another new find.



    I discovered this massive place by luck the other week, only had enough time for a quick look, I couldn't find an obvious way inside, I had other plans for the day. I soon asked a local explorer to take a look around it to see if I missed anything.

    Fast forward to this week, He said he found a way inside and said it was good. So I set off, and got to the house. I found the entry point after searching for a bit. When I set foot inside, I was still pretty amazed with what I saw. I was aiming to find a treasure trove like this for over a year.

    The pictures speak the whole way through. It was lived in by 3 siblings who had lived there their whole lives. Work had started on the back bit downstairs, the rest of the house remains untouched.

    Nicely done. Looks like the house is stuck in the 1950s. I like the wooden furniture (the Queen Anne dresser) and the antique telephone. It's nice to see that the fireplaces are complete, gives the house that extra bit of character.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    There's an air of sadness about this place, I hope its respected by who ever else is after you.

    Lovely report thanks;)

    Thanks for the comments, there were 6 bedrooms in this house, unfortinetly, my camera couldn't make it that far, so this is more of a basic view. Fortinetly, the rest could be shared by someone soon.
