OOOoooh, I didn’t know there is such a beautiful abandoned house in Singapore!

According to the author of these stunning photos, this house was first built in 1854, and was known as “Tyersall House”. In 1860, a Malay sultan took over the property and the house was demolished. The new house, Istana Woodneuk (“istana” means “palace” in Malay) was built in 1890 and completed 2 years later. In 1905, it was badly burnt because of faulty electrical wiring. This house has been abandoned since 1907.

Wow, truly old-skool. But I like!
