Abode Summary:

Elda Castle was built for Abercrombie,in 1927/28. Though it has passed through several owners since the Abercrombie family departed in the 1940's,it is now rather sadly & forlornly fallen into a state of crumbling decay & disprepair.it is remarkably on sale for $3.2 million,& heres hoping there will be a sympathetic restoration & rescue before it's too late.?
