    Cool The House Of Masks - December 2017


    The House Of Masks



    Well its almost been a whole year since I explored this house! So why not upload around now.
    I had been exploring a fair amount in this area, when I took a closer look at this old house, having heard a few stories from previous explorers about it, I was dubious to say the least, looking in via windows it was clear no one had been here in sometime, so with the girlfriend following in I went.

    First thing I noticed was it looked as if the place was turned a little upside down, I know I was not the only one here or had been considering the mirror inside had some weird explorers name?!!? anyway moving on from this I made my way upstairs and the girlfriend began to root for names and whom may live here, so we gathered the place had been abandoned a fair while, but not sure how long.. yet but the former occupant was of german decent and her name was Debbie, she also wrote screen plays and had family in germany, who wrote to her often.

    Now of course you can only put some pieces together from what you find or remains, but still it was not until I uploaded this place to my like page on FB that a neighbour stepped forward, now things will unravel and why not indeed, seems not many people know what may have happened and take this as another house to explore an upload.

    It seems Debbie the former owner was in fact conned out of her home, by builders who sold on her property to another company, an all this stuff and her personal contents was later scattered across the lawn in disrespect, she Debbie was under the intention, they could help her fix up the place but instead, they brought her home and sold it on for more money, leaving her homeless and has yet to go back, but apparently she was made aware explorers had been inside, due to some getting "caught".

    Anyway enough of the history, I guess this is the house of masks or Debbie's home if you hate code names






























































    Anyway thanks for looking and just a heads up, all this stuff is broken and most likely robbed/scattered on the lawn in bits an pieces now, so not worth it.
    Cheers for looking more coming soon!

    What a sad story for the previous owner, all her stuff is still there. She has probably gone back to Germany as you say she has family there. Such a nice house as well.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    That's amazing, surreal and crushingly sad in equal proportions. Top work MB...

    That's a very sad story! I feel gutted for the previous owner getting ripped off like that and all her stuff trashed. Sadly it would have probably ended up like that if it had been on the urbex scene too, look at jokers thats a recent one thats been trashed:(

    Some wonderful images though;)
