Villa Grammaire III by DimitriKING Villa Grammaire III by DimitriKING
Sometimes when going from one Urbex location to another, you spot something like "Villa Grammaire". Life is full of beautiful surprises

It sure was.
Unbelievable that these big houses are just standing, waiting.
This week a shall post a full report on my site. There you will see the demolition of time.

Also very strange was a room packed with boxes, filled with family photo's,.. That gives me always the creeps,..Why would somebody not take their photo's?

You know... that is very very weird!!! A place like that... abandoned and with everything inside? Do you have any info on that place? Why was it abandoned but it still maintains all its glory? Why leaving personal issues behind? Leaving in a hurry? Doesn't make sense because you said that a room had packed boxes.
I am absolutely curious about it. How did you manage to get inside?? It is not sealed?
Sorry about all the questions but I have never seen an abandoned place like this one before!

I ask myself the same question every time I visit such places. Usually a enormous place and no one even bother.
Mostly these houses are architectural heritage. That means you cannot change anything of the villa. So any rebuilding has to be done the get the same state is was build in.
With this in mind, only a few wants to inherit such a place, or cannot afford to buy this. And when the years go by, the house gets in more worst shape. Check my website: [link]
I guess the family who lives there has died and there was no one to claim the property. The furniture will then be sold in a auction, and the only thing remains are the personnel things like pictures.
Finally it comes in hands of the borough.
The only thing i could trace that there used to lived an wealthy family, well known in the area.

90% of the time, there is always a way to get in by not breaking the Urban Exploration code. That is, I don't force my way in by breaking doors a windows.
And,.. Take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing but foot prints.
