Decay (XLV)



This is one of those 'about to be restored' buildings...
Former private house with chapel at Sete Castelos Park, Oeiras

Elle semble sur le point de s'effondrer ! Elle a beaucoup de charme pourtant et une réfection s'impose. Qui la fera ?

This is absolutely stunning!

I hope it gets done at some point in the future...that is some house. I can just imagine what it looked like at one time!

I find this interesting. The Gospels report the Jesus person as saying rich people can't get into heaven. But what about those rich enough to have a chapel in their home? :-)

It's such a wonderful shape and size. I hope it is restored to it's original beauty. It's amazing how that roof is growing!

This building really has a lot of character. I'm glad they will be restoring it. Very special.

Oh, what a lovely building -- even in decay! I do hope they're able to restore it soon! The roof is amazing indeed! Roof with a beard in its old age!! Have a wonderful evening, JM!

É realmente uma pena, porque os arcos são muito bonitos, a casa poderia ser restaurada!

This house would be extraordinary if restored. Would have loved to have seen it during its former, glorious time.

It will be a real beauty when done!

Groan. And it probably isn't going to get any subsidies...

I like the plants growing on the roof! This place could be spectacular once again.

The decay makes for great photos.

It will take a lot of time, money and "elbow grease" to clean up this property! It has so much potential!
Nice to catch up on your blog today - it's been busy for me at my office!
Bon weekend, JM!

Jotain pitäisi tehdä nopeasti. Talo on niin kaunis, että on sääli antaa sen rappeutua.

Saludos!

What a beauty! Look a the "grass" on the room.

Dina said...

I sure hope this one will be saved.

Halcyon said...

At least it's getting saved! It's so beautiful. :)

Great possibilities for the new owner (with money)!
Still pretty in many ways.
