Messy house filled floor-to-ceiling with cider bottles on sale for £110k

It might seem like the only way to get a bargain in today’s housing market is to buy a fixer-upper.

One property that’s recently gone on the market certainly fits the bill, offering buyers a cut-price home, but with a catch.

The three-bedroom house is located in Plymouth, Devon, with a guide price of £110,000 at auction. While that might seem like a great deal, there’s a lot of work to be done once the new owner gets in there.

From the outside, the house blends in with others on its leafy Stoke Village street – albeit sporting a hedge in need of trimming.

Inside is a different story altogether, though, as the rooms are piled high with rubbish, with cider bottles filling the space.

The mess is so severe that auctioneers were unable to even make their way through it, saying on the listing ‘we have been unable to access all rooms and further details will be added in due course’.

The kitchen floor of the semi-detached pad is waist-high with empty milk cartons, while peeling wallpaper and ripped curtains can be seen throughout.

Auction House, who are selling the junk-filled property, says it ‘requires renovation and remedial work throughout,’ including to the courtyard which they’ve been unable to access.

It’s not clear whether the previous owner had hoarding issues, but as the home has fallen into disrepair it’s clear this renovation will be a big one

For the right person it could be a passion project, as it does have a lot of space. Comprising a living room, dining room, kitchen/diner, and two bathrooms, the three upstairs bedrooms are described as ‘good sized’.

The location is also enviable, just a few minutes walk from Dockyard station (getting you to Plymouth in just six minutes) and a short drive to the waterfront bars and restaurants of Royal William Dock.

Semi-detached properties in Stoke currently sell for an average of £357,000, so this home is certainly cheaper.

It’s just whether you back yourself to clear it out – and how strong your stomach is when it comes to cider.
