Détails de décrépitude

Decay Versailles
Unfortunately, VDP's favourite house in town isn't getting any better. If anything, it has gotten much worse. See it here.

Surely it will get the care and attention it deserves.

RedPat said...

It is so lovely - hope it fixed up a bit.

A sad sight.

I love the old wrought iron, so historical, hopefully someone takes care of it...

Dave said...

Beautiful house, is it privately owned? If so its a huge committment both timewise and financially to keep it in good repair and in keeping with the neighbourhood. Its sometimes interesting to muse as to why its fallen into disrepair. Hopefully it will become loved again and return to its former glory.

Yes it looks like a wonderful house, so sad to see older important properties being neglected. From the style I'm guessing it's in the St Louis district?

l'argent restera toujours le nerf de... l'entretien !

Jacob said...

This is rather sad...it reminds me of houses near ocean. But a little TLC could restore its former beauty, oui?

Kate said...

Even when not in good repair, I like wrought iron scroll work.

VP said...

Sad, but it is still in quite good conditions, after all!

@ Geoff: no but good try! It is actually on rue de la Paroisse in Notre-Dame neighbourhood!

Hopefully it will get the care that it needs.

It's so sad. But maybe someone will finally find the money to restore it.

Michelle said...

Hopefully someone will step in to take care of it.

It is sad to see this.

Oh what a shame Ciel, it's such a lovely building.. Is it abandoned, or still being used?

pour repeindre des grilles comme celles ci c'est l'enfer

I like the patina, but only if I were browsing an antique store. I hope it can be restored.

But there is something about light decay that attracts our eye.
