As if time had stopped and its occupants evaporated. This is how they found this imposing Victorian mansion in the United Kingdom.
Colin Smith (36), better known as The Bearded Explorer (The Bearded Explorer), stumbled upon this abandoned mansion on his way home from work on the outskirts of London. It was the overgrown and unkempt grass in the driveway that caught his eye. And he returned a few days later with his friend Aaron.
It is not clear what happened to the owners of the house nor why did they leave everything inside. “I came across this amazing house totally by accident. I was driving around the area and was surprised by the type of architecture,” you can hear at youtuber in the video.
No environment was left unexplored: from the entrance hall, to the imposing wooden staircase, from the dilapidated rooms to the terrifying attic.
On the lower floor there was a large arch like those found in temples or churches. There, a distribution hall communicated with the living room, the living room and the huge kitchen. Food, newspaper clippings, silverware and photographs they had remained as the last time the house was inhabited.
A staircase with prominent railings leads to the upper floor. In a similar way to what happens with the lower floor, all the rooms communicated to a common hall.
In each room there was a bed and, in some, a sofa must have made those spacious environments even more comfortable. Deteriorated, the walls show signs of lack of maintenance and the ailments of moisture.
The cupboards in the house were piled high with wine bottles and glass pitchers for serving water. In different environments of the house an old doorbell system was also found with which people used to call the staff who helped them with housework.
