Oh the things you could do with this building if you had the money to restore it!

tu as fait des photos de l'intérieur ? j'aime bien ces maisons (manoirs) abandonnées

Babzy said...

Beautiful house, you should buy it and renovate it ;) !

A once stately building is crumbling. I wonder why it got to be this neglected. It needs a lot of work but maybe could be restored.

Lois said...

It looks a little sad!

Anya said...

Its almost antique :-)
Very special photo !!

Tricia said...

It looks a bit worn down, but it could be spiffed up - It has a lot of character & I'll bet the stories it could tell would be quite interesting!!! Great place & photo

Toooooo bad! I bet she was a beauty in her prime!

I think this could have been turned in to something very very pretty.
I hope the owner is rich....

This is fascinating to see how those neat and tidy buildings that you usually show us ... how they look in a state of decay. As you know I rather like abandon.

Ai que pena! O lugar é tão imenso e poderia ser restaurado!

Such a beautiful building! It is sad, it seems to happen almost everywhere...

Hilda said...

It looks like it got gutted by a fire. Such a shame. Must have been magnificent in the past.

The appearance stirs my imagination.

The decadence has a kind of beauty.

A coat of paint would work wonders. Pity owners let their buildings end up looking like this.

looks rustic

A far cry from the beautiful things you usually show us. It sort of makes you appreciate more the old houses that have been kept up or restored.
Poor thing . . .

How glorious it must have been. Excellent shot of it.

Steffe said...

That looks great. I hope you had a look inside.
