A HOUSE with a big garden just three miles from the beach is going up for auction – at a starting price of ONE POUND.
The tiny one up one down property is the ultimate fixer upper with two rooms on offer along with a large space at the back.
It sits just three miles from the beach in the Morriston area of Swansea, South Wales, and is ready for a full makeover.
With a small space comes a small guide price – just £1 – less than the bottle of bleach you might buy to clean it.
The cottage in desperate need of some TLC and some garden landscaping but, for the right creative eye it could be a "bargain of a lifetime".
Of course, the hammer is likely to fall at a price higher than a bottle of bleach, especially as the little home found at the end of a terrace is in the popular area of Morriston.
Buyers hoping to get a foot on the property ladder can start the bidding at just £1 when it goes under the hammer with Paul Fosh Auctions.
Sean Roper, of the auction house, said: "The property may currently be small but at that price and with the attached land to the rear it offers the new owner a blank canvas on which to create a cosy, modern home.
"There is scope to extend the property by creating two bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen and still have a large garden to enjoy.
"With house prices across the UK and especially in south Wales rocketing this really does offer a new owner occupier or investor the opportunity to snap up possibly the bargain of a lifetime."
Sean says the two-storey property requires full refurbishment, with scope to extend, has a front door and can be accessed via its own side gate leading to private garden space.
With no kitchen or bathroom it is cash buyers only.
The auction will take place online between Tuesday and Thursday.
