    1. It is. I think maintaining these properties do take a lot of effort (and money)!

  2. Oh my - what a shame to abandon such a beautiful and imposing structure. But the heating bill alone would decimate the bank account, I'm sure.
    Great photos.

  3. I totally agree with you, how could someone let this castle in abandon? It's really sad but I guess it's too expensive to maintain a castle like this...

  4. I was just going to say that I did not know South Africa had castles. I agree it is too bad that it got abandoned but I guess the owner could not afford it.

    1. Johannesburg is a very 'young' city (founded in 1886) whereas Cape Town is much older and has many historical buildings including castles. x

  6. That is so sad to have such a beautiful castle abandoned and alone... Autumn is my most favorite of the seasons by far because of all the changing colors painting the world
