A house that’s been left empty and untouched for decades is finally on the market – with an asking price of just £75,000.
The three-bedroom semi was once a loved family home, but was abandoned and has not been lived in since.
As a result, the interiors are straight out of the 1960s, but with peeling wallpaper and quite a bit of mess.
The house, in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, will be listed for auction via a live stream on May 13, with a guide price of £75,000 to £100,000.
That makes it a great way for a first-time buyer to get their hands on a property – but whoever lands the house will need to be prepared for some serious DIY work.
Some of the psychedelic decor remains, and remnants of the old kitchen and bathroom are still in place.
But the boldly coloured wallpaper and paint is peeling, the garden is overgrown, and the floors of some rooms are littered with rubbish.
Agents Auction House Bristol and West said more than 50 viewings have already booked in.
Sean Hayward of Auction House Bristol and West said: ‘For some this won’t be a trip down memory lane, it will be a trip to an era of their parents’ childhood.
‘As soon as you enter the property you are transported to the late 1960’s, especially based on the wallpaper from the child’s bedroom.
‘Currently resembling something from the set of Steptoe and Son, Brookland Road now needs someone to bring it into the 21st Century for which I’m sure it will provide memories for the next generation of owners.
‘It’s a great opportunity for someone who is looking to completely renovate and transform a property.
‘This could be the ideal family home, situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and close to amenities on Locking Road.’
Perhaps one for an ambitious DIY-er?
