Sunburst House, Anglesey, Wales

Once again, Anglesey throws up another wonderful abandoned house in the truest sense. Some houses are not exactly abandoned per se - just left in between occupants and sometimes for decades. This house was sold as part of land bought by a farmer to house his cows and sheep and he had no personal interest in the house itself. In reality he saw it as an eyesore; a white elephant on his newly acquired land. To me however, it was a treasure trove of vintage items waiting to be looked through and photographed. 

The decay in the house was quite extensive which isn't surprising considering a whole window was missing downstairs allowing the elements to gain access into the interior. 

Visited in 2022 with Becci [Ninja Kitten] we had to walk slowly up the long path in order to avoid the farmer who had caught other's trying to gain access. Luckily he wasn't around when we went. 

Inside, every room was littered with ancient artefacts from the last occupants. Dozens of old letters and photographs which added to the vintage feel inside. Nothing inside suggested anything had been bought after the 1970s suggesting the house has been abandoned for many decades. 

From the letters I presume the house was lived in by a married couple; Richard and Mary Thomas. Quite possibly, Mary outlived her husband as the bedrooms were mainly adorned with female [one presumes] products. beyond this, no other history on the house is available.

We spent a good 4 hours inside this wonderful house, marvelling at the old 4 track reel to reel player, old documents, portrait photographs and other long forgotten artefacts. Possibly my favourite location in 2022 and a reminder of just how amazing some abandoned houses really are.
