Inside a content-stuffed three-bedroom auction house

A three-bedroom house near a Cornish harbor is up for auction at a knockdown price of just £100,000, with some unusual extras. Not only is the end of terrace property in Hayle fully furnished, it is also being sold full of the contents of the previous occupant.

The attractive guide price for the house which overlooks Hayle Harbor reflects its need for a full refurbishment, with part of the building described as ‘structurally unsafe’. Owned by the same family for decades, the property is said to be on the market after the necessary works became too much for the current owners.

Steps from the beach, with harbor views and a large rear garden, this home’s potential has already generated a lot of interest, according to Millerson estate agents. However, when it comes to tours, there’s an audible gasp when the front door is opened, and potential buyers get their first look inside.

Despite the affordable price, unfortunately this property is very unlikely to be suitable for anyone looking to buy their first home.

Paul Le Bas explains:The property will use a local developer or investor to repair and rent or resell. Due to the issues the property currently has it is not mortgageable for a first time buyer which is a shame as it would also make an excellent starter home once the work is complete.”

The large room at the front of the house is bright, but nearly impossible to get into due to the amount of stuff crammed in there.

However, despite all the problems and work to be done, there are still parts of the house that hint at its potential to once again become a bright and welcoming family home.
