House hunters are left stunned as a £300,000 “sh**hole” property is for saleTAZAA News

House-hunters were left stunned after discovering the condition of a £300,000 property put on the market.

A three-bedroom property in Orpington, south-east London, has been described by the agents selling the property as “in need of modernisation” – despite the house looking completely trashy.

Pictures of the semi-detached house show a dilapidated exterior with boarded up windows and rubbish strewn across the front drive.

Inside the kitchen looks completely ransacked with no cupboard doors, electrics ripped from the walls and the entire worktops and flooring covered in stones and rubbish.

A mattress is at the center of the chaos in an unsanitary room with holes ripped through the walls.

Dust, paper, stones and glass from broken windows littered the dirty floors.

Upstairs bedrooms have holes in the floorboards, which are torn, and brackets across the windows.

The toilet tank was also destroyed and the glass in front of the shower was apparently broken.

And the raised garden area needs some TLC and a skip to get rid of all the discarded items.

The property was listed for auction last month with an eye-watering guide price of £300,000 but did not sell.

Online browsers took to social media to comment on the high price tag, with many describing the property as a “sh**hole”.

One said: “£300,000 for a house that needs extensive work and is in an obviously tough area? The house next door is also a sh** hole, no one wants to live there.

Another said: “I’d appreciate being told which of the two s**t hole properties I’d rather buy.”

A third said: “This is a street with a large traveler’s camp at one end. I was looking to buy in this area 20 years ago and was referred by estate agents and many of the houses had burnt down.

Another said: “People must try it though it looks like it has new windows next door.”

Auctioneers Barnard Marcus describe the house online as: Freehold Two Floor Semi Detached House in need of modernisation,

“Full empty possession.”

They added: “Prospective buyers and bidders attend properties entirely at their own risk.

“Special care should be taken when accessing cellars, attics, external grounds and outbuildings and boundaries.

“All unsupervised inspections of vacant sites shall be made during daylight hours only and entry into such sites shall be at the sole risk of the viewer.”
