Exploring an Abandoned Three Million Dollar House
This now abandoned house was sold in 2015 for a price of $3.6 million dollars & in today’s market has a value of 5$ million! Originally found by RiddimRyder he noted that there was considerable overgrowth making this once questionably abandoned house now definitely abandoned! The lawn was extremely overgrown & weed were popping up throughout the interlock driveway. Out back, I could see an outline of a pool which my to my surprise had been completely filled in.
As you enter the front door you are in a small alcove with double doors leading to a grand living room with near ceiling to floor windows & marble fireplace. I immediately noticed the ceiling by the window had failed with insulation piling on the floor & the smell or decay surprisingly strong.
To the left of the living room was the kitchen. This was clearly someones dream kitchen with ample light pouring in from a large skylight, a large island with built in cook top. Counter tops were marble & the custom cabinets provided unlimited storage! Off the left side of the kitchen was a laundry room, again with ample storage then further back was a small dining area which likely was used as a bar.
At the far end of the kitchen was a beautiful walk out octagon shaped sun room with a high ceiling & windows everywhere! This appeared to be a media room based on the built in custom entertainment unit. This would have been a fantastic room to cozy up in with its gas fire place!
Before entering the kitchen from the front there was a dining room with a built in glass shelf where one could have stored a favourite liquor for those after dinner spirits. To the right of the right of the main entrance was a short corridor leading to a staircase & child’s bedroom. Before climbing the stairs I continued down another corridor which led to a large bathroom complete with Jacuzzi tub! This was a quite large for a main floor bathroom but it also had to accommodate another bedroom at the end of the corridor which was for a little girl. The difference between the two main floor bedrooms was the boy’s room had a bathroom in it, whereas the girl’s bedroom had walkout access to the backyard
With the mainfloor complete I made my way upstairs to see what I could find. It seemed that the upper level was entirely the master bedroom. As you reached the top of the stairs there was a closet with shoe racks. Then a large yet plain master bedroom with a small corridor lined with built in cabintery for clothing storage on the way to the master bath. This was quite a bathroom with its many mirrors & bold red paint on the walls. The skylight over the Jacuzzi tub was leaking & decay ate away at the ceiling causing paint & other debris to fall.
Having completed the top two levels it was now time to explore the basement. As I made my way down I could smell some mold & water damage was apparent. There were a few rooms but nothing that really jumped out at me as super interesting.
