One mid-modern home appeared to be left abandoned by its owners before they were able to open their Christmas presents.

The Christmas tree was left decorated in golden ornaments with an angel dressed in red at the top.

Unopened presents were also left under the tree and are believed to have been left there for over a decade since the previous owner suddenly died.

Showcasing the home, in Birmingham, Alabama, Abandoned Southeast wrote in a Facebook post: "Christmas decorations are a common find in most abandoned houses.

At the centre of the house, the children’s rooms are divided by a folding door that makes separate rooms for sleeping and opens into a large daytime play area.

The master bedroom had sliding doors to the porch on one side and a closet that was packed full of clothes even after being left abandoned.

A 1960s Chevrolet Corvair belonging to the previous owner has been left to rust in the trees.
