<Edward had a good life. He lived with his mum and dad in a fabulous derelict mansion. From his attic bedroom he enjoyed a fifteen kilometre view.~>
These are from a chapter book for children. I don't understand the underlined part. Doesn't 'derelict' mean 'not used in bad condition'?
not used or cared for and in bad condition
Thanks your reply. But, can the word, derelict[or dilapidated], be used with fabulous or mansion? In the story, his father works for a big company in town and he has a good life every day.
