Per­fect as stock­ing filler – a £1 house

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

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.
