This house is located in rural Ontario just outside of London. It’s one of those properties that creates more questions than answers for the curious explorer. In particular, I could find very little information on the last residents and no information on a woman’s passport found in a purse.
Eight of the 20 acres is leased to a farmer.
The house has severe water damage which would seem to indicate that it’s been vacant for quite some time. Several rooms such as the basement and upper bedroom have fallen drywall where water has accumulated. In addition to the water damage, this house has an EXTREME amount of mold growth. It has the most growth I’ve ever experienced in 22 years of exploring.
I started my exploration in the basement. There is mold on the walls, on the piano, on the books in the closet, on the dresser, on the bedframe, everywhere!!!
The basement contains a sliding glass door that opens out into the backyard with a spacious in-ground swimming pool. In the far corner is a bar. Next to the bar is a piano covered with drywall. It was quite dark and smelly down in the basement and I didn’t spend much time looking beyond the main features.
There was a hallway (mold infested) that leads to an office with a shag green carpet and a closet with old books. The books are covered in mold. There’s a laundry room with rusty old washer and dryer, a bedroom with collapsed ceiling and a second bedroom. The second bedroom looks pretty much intact although I didn’t venture into the drawers.
One thought on “Sweating to the Moldies House (London, Ontario)”
I hope you’ll revisit with mold protection. Such a gorgeous house that so much could have been done with of the previous owners didn’t want it. It’s hard not to wonder why it was abandoned with so much still in it and no other owners. Awesome photos!
