Inside ‘absolute bargain’ property on sale on Zoopla for just £25,000

A terraced home that features three bedrooms might be an absolute bargain, but it requires plenty of attention.

The mid-terraced house is on sale in an auction in Colliery Row, Church Gresley, in Staffordshire.

For a young couple trying to get on the property ladder for the first time, it could be a complete bargain.

Equally, it would work for someone in need of a project, or perhaps a landlord who is looking to rent properties out.

The house is advertised on the property website Zoopla, and has the guide price of £25,000 as a starting point.

The home is described on Zoopla as a “mid-terraced property standing back behind a fore garden”.

It has a hall, reception room, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor with a landing and three bedrooms on the first floor.

It also has gardens, a gas-fired central heating system and UPVC double glazing.

But as the photos show, it’s in need of a bit of work.

In the kitchen, the cupboard doors can be seen hanging off and there is a big space presumably where the oven used to be.

The floors need work in the bedrooms, with wallpaper hanging off in one and the house is in need of decorating generally.

The garden is also in need of a good weeding for starters.

However, it could be the perfect project for those wanting to make the house their home and not afraid of a bit of hard work.

Whoever ends up purchasing the place could take inspiration from another young couple in Staffordshire who added £80,000 onto the property’s value by upcycling furniture and using artwork they’ve created themselves.

Molly Bell, 26, and Sam Heptonstall, 29, bought their home for £185,000 and were desperate to give it a makeover to better suit their tastes.

The house in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, was a typical 1930s property, painted in bright colours and had dated furnishings.

So the thrifty couple used clever DIY tricks and upcycling furniture to suit their tastes without splashing out on new items.
