Very similar thing happened in the UK
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destruction_of_country_houses_in_20th-century_Britain

all the houses like in Downton Abbey were essentially constructed for one super-rich generation which profited from the industrial revolution, but the upkeep and maintenance was such that the lions share of them were destroyed, similar style of thing in the UK. I saw a 60 bedroom palace on sale in the Times.co.uk in 2008 for 1,000,000 euroes – the only thing was it would cost the same to bring it to modern liveable conditions it was a decrepit estate. But the big clincher is, unless you use it for a tourism thing it’s nigh on impossible to cover the land-taxes and various other taxes. France also has an inheritence tax which comes to a total of about 50% so you can’t pass it on to your children unless you hand them the deed about 10 years before you die or something.

edit: think of costs of heritage code slate roof with copper gutters alone – thats about 100,000 every ten years
