Spotted this a few days ago, went back armed with camera on Saturday...

Enormous bungalow, back had been extended slightly as had UPVC windows unlike the rest rotton and woody.

Think it's been empty for a year or so looking at the letters, signs of restoration but not recent, no more history.

Apologies for the lack of room shots, must save up for a 20mm lens!

There are a few things in the house I didnt recognise, maybe you can identify them (see pics with comments), also every room had an 18" hole in either the wall or door, looks like ventilation of some sort but I have no idea why...

When I had finished inside I visited both of the caravan (empty) and outside sheds, first one empty, second BINGO = I almost pee'd my pants on entry!! Even better than my aga find!

Full set here, and there are lots!!! https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157645001580509/

Please enjoy.....

I have to agree about the electrics :eek: Perhaps the holes in the walls were some kind of diy air conditioning system. Nice find though.

Those sockets look like site temporary power to me for either work starting soon, or work that never actually got round to commencing.

It's amazing the stuff that gets bodged in just to power a small building site, you should see some of mine

Guildford ish.
Love the bakelite door lock and that crazy graph paper wallpaper.
The samurai sword, wiring and the holes in the walls have a whiff of skunk growing about them. (or so i'm told)
