A 200+ room abandoned estate known as the ‘Welsh Versailles” has been up for sale for £750,000.
The 173-year-old estate Kinmel Hall in Abergele, Conwy, North Wales, was previously “let to rot”until being listed for sale last week.
During the real estate boom more than ten years ago, the 500-foot-long estate was marketed for an outrageous £15 million.
In an effort to preserve the Grade I-listed mansion, the Friends of Kinmel Hall advocacy organization has chimed in.
The home, which is situated in 18 acres of walled gardens and was previously visited by Queen Victoria, has recently been listed for sale by estate agents Allsop

The mansion still has many original elements, including vast Edwardian halls and substantial original oak staircases, despite its state of disrepair.
The entire space has beautiful old cornicing and high ceilings.
Along the walls of many of the rooms is original wood paneling.
The grounds include a sizable stone fountain, acres of trees, and imposing stone lion statues.
The 1870s-era building was purchased for £1.45 million in 2011 with the intention of converting it into a hotel
