Abandoned Mansions Around The World With Mysteries Behind Them


Check out these 10 abandoned mansions that serve as eerie reminders of past elegance, and sometimes tell the story of an occupant’s fate.

1. An Abandoned Mansion in Los Angeles

The Los Feliz Murder Mansion in Los Angeles has been abandoned for more than 50 years. On December 6, 1959, Dr. Harold Perelson bludgeoned his wife to death with a ball-peen hammer before savagely beating their 18-year-old daughter. He then committed suicide by gulping down a glass of acid. After Perelson’s two smaller children were removed from the property, authorities simply locked the doors to the 5000-square-foot home

2. An Abandoned New York Summer State

The Carleton Villa was built in 1894 for typewriter magnate William Wyckoff as a summer residence and large spot for entertaining. Wycoff’s wife died of a heart attack a month before he moved in, and on his first night in the mansion he suffered a heart attack in his sleep and died. Wycoff’s youngest son inherited the villa after his father’s death, but within a few years the family lost much of their fortune in the Great Depression and the house fell into disrepair.

3. Reclusive Heiress Leaves Behind Three Abandoned Mansions

When reclusive copper heiress Huguette Clark died in 2011 at the age of 104, it was revealed that she lived the last few decades of her life in a hospital room, leaving lavish properties abandoned in three states.

4. A Derelict Mansion in Wales

Hafodunas Hall in North Wales was built between 1861 and 1866 for Henry Robertson Sandbach, whose family bought the estate in 1830. The house was built to replace a much older residence which had been built in 1674.

5. A Deserted Estate in Belgium

Round Mansion in Belgium was discovered and photographed by urban explorer Andre Govia. The nine bedroom mansion was abandoned sometime in the early 1990s. It appears that the tenants left in haste, because the rooms are still occupied by expensive furniture and personal effects.

6. A German Doctor’s Estate

Little is known about the occupants of this abandoned mansion in Germany, which was deserted at least twenty years ago. The mansion is badly dilapidated, yet still boasts gorgeous fixtures and furniture. Personal effects, including clothes and photographs, have been left behind, suggesting a sudden flight from the residence. The most eerie part of the house involves a physician’s examination room, complete with instruments and sections of a kidney set between glass.
