Perfect as stocking filler – a £1 house
A HOUSE in Wales is up for sale for just £1 – a perfect Christmas stocking filler.
The three-bedroom terraced house neighbouring woodland has recently installed new double-glazed windows and a gas central heating system.
Set in the former mining town of Tonypandy, the property comes with a view overlooking the South Wales Valleys – and could be the perfect Christmas present.
The house is said to be close to local amenities, including a popular commuter station, and was previously let out at £425 a month.
It is now being listed at auction with the reserve fee just £1 to guarantee a quick sale.
Paul Fosh, managing director of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “People looking at our catalogue may think that the £1 reserve is a typo but it’s not. If someone bids £1 and there are no others bidding then the property is theirs.
“The property at this price could well be a shrewd investment for renovation and buyto-let. Being sold with vacant possession, it has already benefited from some renovation and now requires further modernisation.
“We’re expecting to have a lot of interest. It must be the cheapest house in Britain.
“Perhaps it could make the ideal Christmas present for that difficult-to-buy-for someone?”
The house will be bid for at the Paul Fosh auction on December 7 at The Park Inn Hotel, Llanedeyrn, Cardiff, starting at 5pm.
