When moving into a new studio apartment, this tenant didn’t expect to stumble into a mind-blowing secret. Although it used to be an old English monastery, dating back to the 19th century, it was renovated. There are approximately 30 apartments inside and this tiny studio was a steal at the cheap price.
Or at least, he thought it was tiny.
The kitchen/living room has high ceilings: it’s a very old building.
He set up all of his essentials.
Because of the high ceilings, the bed was in a unique place.
A loft stretched out over the kitchen, making it very cozy.
The small bathroom is on the first floor.
But there’s something wrong here…
A trap door. Does it lead anywhere?
Oh, just some extra storage in the small studio apartment.
A staircase. To a secret dungeon?
At first glance it seemed to run under the whole building. Time to get some help.
Once an exploring companion was found, it was time to delve into the depths. The hatch led to a 19th century layout of corridors and hatches beneath.
The side rooms were underneath different tenants.
At the end of the corridor, there was more.
A possible secret room in between apartments (in the ceiling of the corridor).
Room with a vaulted ceiling leading to more darkness.
Modern graffiti, someone was visiting within the last decade.
The last room was large, with good head space.
A crypt? Or maybe a great place for an entertainment center.
Who knows what went on down here…
There was an opening in the middle of the floor with loose dirt in it. It seemed recently disturbed.
Terrifying stairs leading back up into the apartment.
Secret dungeons, corridors, rooms and doors make any home perfect. Here’s hoping he never, ever leaves (or tells the landlord).
It’s hard to tell what went on down there over the years, but I know one thing: I’m a little jealous my place doesn’t have a trap door OR a secret dungeon.
Share this with others. Maybe someone you know has a secret dungeon… skeletons included.
