Over the past 11 months, it’s safe to say DIY has become second nature for a lot of people, stuck indoors with nothing else to do apart from wait for the big shop to arrive and crack on with all the household jobs they’ve been putting off forever. And now, the ultimate fixer upper has dropped onto Britain’s housing market, posing the ultimate challenge for budding Handy Andy’s across the country.
Dubbed ‘Britain’s Worst House’, a three bedroom end terrace on Hawshead Drive in Bradford could be your’s for just £2,000.
Described as a ‘doer upper’, the house has been put up for auction having been on the market for months, without successfully finding a willing buyer.
Looking at pictures of the house, we think ‘doer upper’ might be a bit generous, with the garden being nothing but a pit of overgrown weeds and parts of discarded furniture. And inside the house only gets worse.
Rubbish is strewn throughout the house, along with months worth of dirt and belongings of the previous owners, who clearly didn’t clean up after themselves upon leaving the residence.
Most walls are absolutely coated in damp and mould, with every room looking as if it’s been deliberately trashed, almost beyond repair, with rubbish and dirt piled high wherever you look.
The auction listing describes the house as a ‘freehold 3 bedroom end terrace subject to a service charge in need of full refurbishment throughout’.
“The property has not been lived in for several months and suffered considerable water damage.
“Located in a predominantly residential area approximately 1 mile south of Bradford City Centre, Bradford University, The Leisure Exchange retail complex and Bradford Interchange (Bus & Rail) are all within 1 mile which connects Leeds, Huddersfield and Manchester Victoria.”
So, it might be riddled with mould and need completely knocking down and rebuilding, but it’s only two grand and in a great location. What are you waiting for?
