Report - Artists House, Norfolk : Summer 2020

First 28dl report, here goes!
Back in the summer, I visited a farmhouse fairly local to me known within the community as "Artists House" it also goes by another name but won't mention it as this gives away its location!
It's believed to have been left vacant since 2009, as that's when all the last letters are dated to. The previous owner seems to have been some sort of artist or cartographer as there are very professional looking paintings and drawings in the bedroom and other rooms. He was also well travelled, with various souvenirs from around the world, including an American driving licence. There is also a letter from a US Airman from WW2, with an attached photograph, possibly indicating some American relatives?
I'm assuming the home now lay vacant due to the owner being put into care, or possibly passing due to a large amount of letters indicating poor health. I've not included any external photos of the house as this can also give the location out quite easily.
I believe the house has since been secured, which personally I think is a good thing, as this will preserve the amazing history held in these walls.

Now on with the photos...

Good 1st report. Followed format, showcased the rooms well. I do like the art work here. Seems a sadness around those rooms. Good start, welcome to 28dl world of posting :thumb

Incredible imges. I guess being new to all this stuff I'll come out with all sorts of noob thoughts, but this is incredible. The guy was such a skilled creator, maybe not the very best, but clearly creative and active with that, took the time to collect photos of him doing it, and for what? At the end of it all? The indignation of prostate cancer and all his books and items left to rot and eventually be put in a skip, or if he was lucky cleared by a clearance company and sold on in charity or junk shops. I have books like that that have not been touched in years, Who would ever have guessed that the last time he put the last book on the shelf it would never be read again? If he had known he could have got rid of it all years earlier. At what point do you decide you need to throw the trifles of your life away. I imagine he thought it all had value? I sometimes collect books from people and once or twice the person was dead, their home a maky smell of geriatric decay, but even the living have that odour as the downsize. I suspect that he might have been happy for his life and work to go on in this way, the final exhibition.
