5-bed house could be perfect family home

THIS five-bedroom house could be the perfect family home – but the interior may shock any prospective buyers.

Despite being on the market for over £1million, the semi-detached house in North West London looks more like a building site inside.

From the outside, this property looks like any other family home with a clean and well-kept exterior, a large driveway and car parked outside.

But the new owner will have to do plenty of grafting before hiring a removal van.

Any potential buyers purchasing the £1,250,00 house will need to have a lot left over to make it habitable.

Roundtree Real Estate heading up the sale, described the house as having “amazing scope to extend it” and “conveniently located”.

But they did add that it requires a “full renovation throughout”.

And the true scale of the work needed will be immediately obvious to visitors crossing the threshold.

Many of the rooms have been completely gutted, with just bare bricks on show, no ceiling, flooring or wall plaster.

And how the home came to be stripped of its furnishings is a mystery, with photos on Rightmove also indicating that a few walls may have been knocked down.

The pictures show a generator and large tubes snaking throughout the property, suggesting the pipes or heating have been fixed or removed.

The remnants of tired decor that remain appear not have been changed for decades, and the carpets are caked in dirt.

It’s not the only property currently on sale with some hefty price tags that will need a complete makeover.

One three-bed home just a short walk from King’s Cross in North London is in a similar condition inside.

The house, which is also on the market for £1million, is in a state of total disrepair.

But for tiny fraction of these whopping London prices, you could grab yourself another home improvement project for just £69,000.

The Scottish home is not stripped bare, but actually comes with a few extras – albeit unwanted.
