Nothing beats the detailing and sturdiness of vintage housing structures. Due to this reason, many people are opting to live in older houses designed years ago. A couple, Courtney and Matt–who goes by @living_in_history on TikTok–purchased a 130-year-old house. However, the couple revealed that they received a letter saying something unusual about the house. Going on a quest to find out more, the couple embarked on an intriguing journey to discover the building and details of their abode. The couple shared in a video that they received a letter addressed to the “purchaser” of the house.

Courtney read the letter they received from the last surviving member of the family that used to live in the house. “I would like to brief you about the secret rooms and the little things that may have not been told when you bought the house,” the letter read. The person revealed in the letter that there were 3 secret rooms and information about where each was. In a follow-up video, Courtney and Matt shared more. They came to the first secret room by a fireplace, hidden with the help of a panel the couple never knew existed. As soon as they lifted the panel, they found alcohol of all kinds.

Right from beers to antique alcohol bottles, all were arranged and kept in the space. In part three of their hunt, Courtney read from the letter where the next secret room was. “The second secret room is in the washroom directly in the door opposite the wall,” the letter read. Courtney cautioned her viewers that the bathroom was the “scariest room.” The couple opened the bathroom and went towards the panels under which a supposed secret room was hidden. As they removed the panels, the couple found quite a space, which they presumed to have been an attic but was covered with pipes and other equipment

Courtney also found a door opposite the wall, as mentioned in the letter, which led to another huge space. “We’re going to try and figure out how to use this space, but for now, it’s just a cool room,” Courtney said. In another video, the couple shared that the third secret room was in the basement. “The letter says that as you go in the basement, there is a retaining wall, but the past owner has boarded the wall,” she explained. There were kinds of wood pieces and other elements put together to close the wall. Courtney looked through a peephole and could see that there was quite a lot of space behind the wall. 

“I think this is what she’s talking about,” she remarked. She found a space and slid her phone in to capture the sight and saw a massive space behind the wall. While the 3 rooms weren’t exquisite, they were certainly unusual and quite secretly built. @samuraifingers wrote, “I think that’s a crawl space or foundation area? Still cool though.” @kiralauth said, “My parents have a house built in the late 1800s and they have a secret room to store coal.”
