I wonder about the authenticity of this post lol. It looks awefully alive and NOT so dust for a real abandoned house.

The is up for sale, so maybe the real estate agent did some tidying up

House must be in an isolated part of a very small town for it not to have been torn apart by looters/grifters/squatters and the like

All the furnishings inside, and the fact that the house is listed for sale, make me think that the real estate agent staged it. People wouldn't leave so many personal items behind, and they wouldn't be in such good shape if they had been abandoned. This is in no way a criticism, because the staging is beautiful, and makes it easier for potential buyers to look past the damage and visualize living there. Your photos are also beautiful. I'm glad you had the opportunity to see the house, and that you shared your images with us :)

What you said is very likely, but the sentence that "people wouldn't leave so many personal items behind" reminds of something I heard about the post ex-Yugoslavian war era (mid-1990s). I don't remember exactly which of the ex-yu countries it was, but it's about a region that needed some re-establishment, you know, culturally rebuilding the place after the war was over. They needed teachers, so the offer was a free home granted to the teachers who'd come and work there. A teacher saw it as pretty cool deal and applied, but was shocked when s/he came into the promised home - all the personal items were there, even the plates were ready on the table, for a meal. Depicting in his/her head the scene of a family fleeing for their lives, or being forcefully kicked away, right before their meal even... That teacher couldn't take that home because s/he couldn't take the heart breaking environment. I hope this family who lived in this house had a happier story.
