Property’s get abandoned all over the world everyday. The majority of these property’s are typically small homes and apartment buildings that get abandoned due to financial reasons. But mansions and luxurious palaces don’t often jus get abandoned like the one below.
It’s hard to believe that anyone would ever abandon a luxury estate, but you never can tell. History is, after all, filled with examples of abandoned mansions and palaces that fell victim to civil unrest. In the case of one particular mansion in New York, however, the reasons as to why the owners left are currently anyone’s guess.
Photographer Bryan Sansivero found and documented this incredible abandoned mansion on the outskirts of New York City (he didn’t want to disclose specifics).
The mansion has 57 rooms, including a bowling alley, indoor tennis court, library, and two bars, all sitting on six acres of land. Remnants of old furniture and carpets give a glimpse into what it was once like.
There’s also a fair share of oddities, like creepy dolls.
The lady of the house clearly had great taste, as evidenced by her stylish shoe collection.
The mansion was built in the 1930s, and today it seems as if it’s stuck in time.
Children’s toys and what appears to be an old trunk suggest that kids lived here once.
There are still plenty of dusty books on the shelves of this oak-paneled study.
Although a lot of the stuff is pretty old, electronics like this old TV set reveal that the house was probably abandoned sometime in the 1970s.
What happened to this place?
Who lived here?
I wonder why they left in such a rush? The home truly has an incredibly mysterious vibe.
Whoever they were, they were certainly used to living well off.
Sansivero wouldn’t reveal the location of the mansion, possibly in order to keep it relatively preserved. Sadly, at least a few vandals have found their way there over the years.
This is what remains of the indoor tennis court.
