Beautiful Abandoned 1930s Mansion - Inside Is Amazing! Plus Guest House

  • Published on Jan 11, 2019
  • In part two of my road trip we check out this amazing abandoned stone mansion. Built in the 1930s, this place is full of suprises inside. Its been empty for the last 5-10yrs and may be getting demolished according to local rumors. So come along as we take one last look inside this beautiful home. As a bonus, we check out a guest house and corn crib on the property. Enjoy
    Please Note: Exploring Abandoned locations can be dangerous. I don't condone or encourage anyone to enter an Abandoned structure. Not only is safety a concern, but often times its illegal and when possible, i seek out permission. I simply go to document its history before it's gone and leave things the way I find them. I assume all the risks & responsibility in doing so. Please don't attempt to do this on your own.

    I think the black “alarm system” in the basement is the bell to summon the butler. And tubs of that era came in that small size for small spaces. Not sure where the plumbing went to the tubs. Stolen for the copper?

    I love very old homes, I currently own and reside in a 135 year old home that we had remodeled but still kept the essence of the house and the era it was built. I would absolutely buy this property in a second. I would take my time and remodel the whole house because they definitely don’t build them like this anymore. It would be a great shame to demolish such a beautiful and unique house by today’s standards.

    Awesome house! My grandmother’s house had that butler’s pantry and the back stairs for servants. The back stairs were not carpeted but the front main stairs were.

    Couple times couldn't hear anything as others were so loud in room next door. Shame, see if you can edit it. Top of house, you were crouched down on back wall. I've looked at quite a few of these old houses but I have to say I've enjoyed this one with you very much. I'm disabled in England so this is a wonderful time out with you. Thanks a lot.

    Love the built-ins flanking the fireplace. Hoping to have ours built like those soon. Who doesn't like a farm house style pantry? Yes! ❤️ My grandparents house was like a small English cottage, the upstairs had built in drawers and finished attic with doors like the one in this video upstairs. Love this house the way it's built. Sturdy! Disliked the kitchen, totally ruined it with the cabinets. It didn't go with the house at all.

    You gotta wonder what kinda tiny shack this guy lives in, if he's calling that "A Mansion". Nice, but ours is bigger and older, and no one ever caled ours "A Mansion" either . . . PS: some crappy 1980's built in's does not "a Nice Kitchen" make . . . Servents quarters? in the 1930's family house? . .this guy needs a much better education. It's a door bell dumbass . . .

    Nice ol house. I wonder who it belonged to, and why it was been abandoned. 🤔

  • Susie Frees
    Susie Frees 14 hours ago

    What really had me holding my breath was whether or not you were going to scavenge the home and remove bits and pieces, such as the vintage fire bombs. You had them down off of the wall and lined up side to side, leading me to think you did take them, as with the weird knife and holster another one of your crew walked around with. Would not surprise me if you tried to take the half-tub also. This is what makes the elegant ladies mere shells that have been stripped of their history, their beauty. Please, explore without desecrating. Get permission from whoever holds the title instead of breaking windows and doors. If a barn still manages to stand, it is not up to you to "reclaim" the wood. Removing without permission is theft, regardless of whether the home has been abandoned or the owner has just run out to the store. These videos encourage others to venture into abandoned homes, some who leave damage and graffiti. It is not entertainment.

    I'd live in the guest house and rent out the main house. I don't need all that space, but a garden is never too big.

  • GaslitWorld f. Melissa B

    I saw mold and wonder if that is why they abandoned it. I'd buy it and have it professionally cleaned, checked for termites, have that remediated and then paint, get security and move in. Then I'd work on the guest house and garden. To me it's not a "mansion" just a spacious, historic home.

    Who ever designed that house had great taste. It’s gorgeous. I like the stone on the exterior. The house has great curb appeal. Love the beaded board wall. If the kitchen was renovated with a large farmhouse sink and island and some great interior decoration the house would be that much more awesome. You did a good job recording.

    This is so awesome! I remember those bathroom colors so well.........LOL And yes I am that old and older. LOL
    The one thing you were asking about in the basement I believe with the wound coils and two black metal round discs look to me like what was in the old houses my dad used to rent back in the 40's -50's........we would see them in the basement or back porch on the main level and they were where the door bells were hooked up and they were indeed loud where you could hear it all over the place. I can imagine it could have been considered part of an alarm system of sorts, or perhaps that was one connected to certain doors or areas that when the door was opened (considering it may have been an alarm system) perhaps there was an actuator on certain doors or whatever that might trigger the bells to ring as a door bell/alarm type of set up. I know we had similar in our homes back in the day and it looks so familiar!
    I love this and am so sad to see it in such disrepair but I totally understand what could have happened and it's happening way too often ......very sad. If it is purchased by a developer and they put a lot of money into whatever they do wouldn't it be fabulous to see it brought back and used as a bunch of little shops or a restaurant or whatever..........thousands of ideas can come to mind.......we could wish anyway!
    Thank you for your sharing of this video. It's my first time here to your site and I truly enjoyed it. The spring was also a fond memory as my inlaws had an old farm back in So Dak and it had an Artesian well that bubbled on top of the ground and piped it into a large tub. Similar situation. When winter froze everything that well never froze and my mother in law would walk out about 100 yards each AM at break of light and get a bucket full of cold cold water and bring it into the house to get the morning coffee going. In the 30+ years they lived there I never remember than well not bubbling and running ............. pretty awesome! It was as clean and clear and the best tasting water ever! Such memories!
    Again, thank you for sharing!

  • Sunnie DeAngelis

    Such a beautiful place! I don’t think i could pick one thing i loved the most about it though. They should definitely try to salvage some of the stuff in the house if they decide to demolish it.... I need a tiny claw foot tub for my little bathroom!! It’s a shame that it has asbestos. I’m sure that is why people won’t invest in the house. It costs a lot of money to properly take care of asbestos...

    @JPVideos ... If the basement was for the butler as you said, then most likely @ 21:25 that was the butler/servant bell that would ring when they were needed upstairs.

    • JPVideos

      Correct. I realized that afterwards.

    The basement bells I wonder if it is the doorbell that was at tbe butler's pantry at the back steps that had the 2 door bells.

    Please! Can someone remove the door of the old refrigerator in the barn, or disassemble the latch that holds it closed. The first thing I though of when I saw it was a child getting caught inside it and not being able to get out. Sometimes kids who are playing go inside an enclosed space like a fridge and the door snaps shut. These old fridges have latches that hold the door closed and can't be pushed open from the inside. The child would be buried alive and no one would hear them. It gives me the chills to think this potential trap is out there.
