Aurbans Wheelin Adventures and Finds.

So i kinda feel like i hijacked the "unusual finds" wheelin thread. I postes so many pictures and side bar conversations happened that everyone elses pictures were gettin overlooked.

So i decided i would just make my own since there will most def be more pictures to come.

Here is what i have already stumbled across.

the mysterious abandoned farm with the pond and boat.

Last Sunday my sisters and i decided to go check out an abandoned house not too far from us. Come to find out the property is 20+ acres with a huge pond. The house is all brick and all the windows are broken and there are checks and all sorts of household items just laying in the house. Its like the family just up and left. Kinda creepy. There are no, "no trespassing" signs on any part of the property.

In the pond is what looks to be an old little wooden fishing boat that im hopin to pull out of there soon.
Also a really pretty barn that is gonna fall down anytime.

We have spent the last few days wheelin, fishin, and just exploring the property.

barn


land (bales are so old they have thorns growing out of them)


house

pond

and the auction house that we are lookin into buyin

Ok so here we go, i know its alot but i just HAD to share

So i live in a little town where everyone knows everyone and we know just about everything about things round here. So the story on this house is that it was built in 2001, and sold for around $350,000. It sits on 9.25 acres. 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. Huge upstairs bonus room, bedroom, bathroom and deck. In ground pool with waterslide and waterfall. 2 ponds. 1/4 mile of PAVED driveway. Screened in porch with hottub.
Sounds amazin huh?
Well when you dont pay your house note the bank takes it. Well this property was auctioned off at $150,000!!! and now COMPLETELY abandoned after tryin to sell it with no luck?!?!?

Sorry for poor quality of pics, my camera was dead so these are all taken with my Iphone.
As i said the drive was is 1/3 of a mile long, mostly feels like your goin through the forest, so freakin cool
bottom of drive close to rd.

the "forest" drive

front

view from front porch, breathtakin right? i get to see this everyday have i mentioned how much i love my home in tennessee??

This is what the property all around the house looks like

side yard

side of house, you can tell how big it is.


This house is wide open!! Somethin seems off to me, maybe someone died in this place lol
the house smelled like it was just built
front door/foyer

livin room and beautiful fireplace

pretty kitchen

vines growin through the window of the master bedroom

one of the FOUR freakin bathrooms

hottub/ hugeeee sunroom

huge area upstairs (2 rooms/ big bathroom) could be an apartment.



Now my FAVORITE part
The creepy pool and pond and STATIONARY party houseboat

View from deck

Ya i said STATIONARY house boat, how freakin cool? These people basically built this house boat in the ground and built a pond and stuff around it to throw parties out of. The boat was open and huge. smelled VERRYY mildewy.

they had two of these gazeebos and if you look at the posts its made to look like a boat dock


AND of Course My BEAST that takes me to all these places

The first house is creepy, scary movies start the way you described.

Second house could be pretty nice with a little cleanup.

Oh i know!! Its super creepy. I dragged my marine neighbor there the other day to go through the house with me. Turns out the couple that lived there left a **** load on important stuff. Account numbers, bank ****, even a social security number. There is a bank thing that shows how much land they owned......about 800 acres of my current town (now taken over with neighborhoods).

crazy huh? these people were loaded. Its creepy how the house still stands with tons of stuff in it.
