Report - Three old houses, Kuala Lumpur, January 2017

1. The History
Can’t find a single bit of info about these abandoned houses on the web anywhere. The oldest one looks like it was built in the late 1800s while the other two are newer build...possibly dating back to the 1930s or 1950s.

2. The Explore
Been to KL twice before. There is no real urbex scene there and all past research has turned up little in the way of places to explore. They also have a tendency to demo anything old to make way for skyscrapers. Hence during the previous two trips it was very much a case of getting out there and seeing what you could find. The first time I managed to find a few places. The second time I only came across one place. This time, however, I came across several interesting sites. This is the first of a handful of reports from my third visit to Malaysia’s capital city. I’d seen a picture of the older house on the web and knew it was in a green space not too far from the KL Tower. After a bit of searching I found the old roofless colonial house on Lorong Raja Chulan…and then found a couple of more modern houses and garage further up the road. Foolishly I’d put no insect repellent on so the local mosquitoes got something of a feast.

3. The Pictures:
This is the oldest and worst (but, arguably, most photogenic) of the three houses. In its time it would have been a quite a stylish place:

Now completely roofless:

…and with a range of out-buildings too:

The arches are very nice:

Up the road there’s a garage:


On closer inspection there’s an old car in there:

Next is the second house which is the best condition of the three and pretty much sealed-up:

On to the third house which, condition-wise is somewhere in between the other two:

The road sign looks new and looks a bit out of place:

Inside it’s pretty grim:
