If it's left looking the way it is now, as you suggest, it won't be around for much longer as it is deteriorating at a rapid pace. Which maybe is what should be done. Leave it as is; let nature take it's course, whatever that may be. Doesn't make sense to spend tons of money to prop up or re-build something that really doesn't have historic value besides being old. It is not an iconic monument; it was a rich person's house that burned down; that is all, nothing less, nothing more. For the member who suggested "a public contest where people could offer suggestions as to how the Hermitage should look", perhaps they can also offer suggestions as to how whatever work is done will be paid for.
