Tour Report: Villa "Lakeside"

We had saved the most spectacular spot for last on our tour with our friend Toeppi in June of 2018. We had seen two really cool bunkers, a doctor's villa that was more a dump than anything else, and we'd desperately tried to find a way into an abandoned water works facility that was more than tightly locked. But this one was to be the grand finale...

Situated in a very wealthy area with lots of villas that belong to celebrities, we didn't expect this one to be easy.

We parked the car roadside a bit down between a couple of other cars so as not to rise any suspicion. First, we took a little stroll down the street to look like regular tourists while evaluating our options of getting onto the property. In the end, we decided to just jump the fence and quickly run towards the bushes. We waited for the right moment, and then we ran. Finding an open door into the house was easy once we were on the property. We were in - unsuspected and undetected!

As we walked through the empty rooms, we were amazed at the luxury that the former owners must have lived in. This place had it all - an indoor pool, a bowling alley, a boat house, a wine cellar...

We took our time looking through all the rooms, and we were surprised that a nice seafront property such as this one wouldn't find a new owner to take care of it and bring it back to its former glory.

After almost two hours, we finished the tour with the mandatory selfie shot and then called it a day.
