July 29th, 2020

Have you ever stumbled upon something only to feel as though you just made the greatest discovery ever? Especially as kids, little things seem so grandiose. But then when you get older, it becomes increasingly harder to find something that takes your breath away. Well, for one lucky man, that’s what happened.

The beautiful country of France

If you’ve never traveled to France, you’re missing out. Along with its rich history and diverse culture, there are a lot of forest areas. Those make a perfect place to hike and explore. But one day, a man found something that blew him away.

On an adventure

Bob Thissen decided to spend some time exploring different places, which included old buildings. After all, many of those hide fascinating secrets of the past. It’s as though these abandoned places tell stories about the individuals who once resided in them.

Unique finds

As someone who loves adventure, it’s not uncommon for Bob to come across unusual items from time to time. But while exploring a forest in France, he walked right up to a stunning mansion. Not only was it gorgeous but despite an overgrown drive, also pristine.

His second visit

Bob found this fantastic place five years earlier. But with his curiosity peaked, he wanted to go back to see if anything had changed. After reaching the property, he could immediately tell that it looked exactly as it did before.

Frozen in time

As Bob put it, this mansion looked like it’d been frozen in time. Everything about it was preserved. The only thing missing was people. Of course, he had to go inside. If the exterior looked this great, he couldn’t wait to see the interior.

Unbelievable

He was beyond shocked. After walking into the mansion, he noticed several interesting things. As an example, there was a piano and newspapers sitting on the tables. He then discovered that even the beds were all made. It made him feel as though someone had merely left for a few hours and would soon return.

Not what he expected

Typically, an abandoned house begins to deteriorate. Often, it doesn’t take much time for things to start falling apart. But that’s not what he saw on this second trip. There hadn’t been any decay nor vandalism. He was shocked.

The mystery

Although he’s now been to the mansion twice, he still has no idea who it belongs to. He’s guessing that for one reason or another, the owner moved away and left everything behind. The other possibility is that the person who owned the property died and without beneficiaries, it’s just been sitting.

It’s preservation

Bob believes the location of the mansion has a lot to do with its impeccable condition. After all, it’s set deep within the forest. It’s an area that few people visit. So, he feels that only a handful know it even exists.

Additional explorations

Although this particular mansion is probably one of Bob’s coolest finds, he’s had success in making other discoveries. People who know him agree that regardless of his destination, he’s always so respectful. Unlike some people who might take items away, this man leaves everything intact.
