A BOARDED-UP house has gone on sale for less than a second hand car – but it’s hiding a disturbing secret.
The three-bedroom home in Telford, Shropshire hit the market with a guide price of just £10,000.
But it is covered in rust and grime and will certainly need a huge transformation.
The property is full of rubbish with everything from plastic bags to fallen tiles littering the floor.
Wallpaper is peeling away in one of the rooms and a dark black mould can be seen spanning across the walls.
Both the kitchen and the bathroom will need new fittings.
Just to get through to the front door isn’t going to be an easy task as there is an array of overgrown plants in the front garden.
The outside of the semi-detached house is boarded up, hiding the filth inside.
However, if you’re willing to take on a renovation project, this house could be an opportunity for you.
It offers potential to become a welcoming family home if you put the work in.
The auction will be taking place on March 30 via a live stream. You can find out more on Rightmove.
