I never understood why people abandon such beautiful places :S It can be redecorated, and then it would look absolutely splendid! I usually like old mansions (abandoned or not), so I would always enjoy to visit some place like that
Wow, how do you find these places? It's sad really that such a beautiful building has been left to deteriorate to this extent. Someone should fix it up and love it a bit. But it does make for a cool shot.
