A dilapidated house, with piles of rubbish and overgrown bushes in the garden, is for sale for £91,000.
The two-bedroom house, in the Staffordshire village of Great Wyrley, is selling for nearly a third of the average house price in the area, at £250,000.
Photos of the property at the end of the terrace show dingy interiors decorated with tumbling ceilings, torn old furniture and wallpaper peeling off the walls.
An advertisement from auction house Bond Wolfe describes the property as ‘partially double-glazed’, but notes that ‘it is in need of a complete refurbishment’.
Photos show the house surrounded by out-of-control brambles that almost completely obscure the property from public view.
The kitchen has pans still on the hob and debris from a collapsed ceiling on the floor
