A house dubbed a “dream home for property developers” has sold at auction.
The property on Acklam Road in Thornaby was up for auction with easyProperty – a venture by easyJet.
And while it came with a £350,000 starting price, the six-bedroom detached house on a large plot ended up selling for £260,000.
But it’s fair to say the buyer will have to have more cash to hand because as you can see from the images in the video above, the house is in need of some tender loving care, redecoration and a declutter.
“This six-bedroom detached Edwardian style house has huge potential to turn this into something really special,” stated the property description.
“Expanding over three storeys the property benefits from two reception rooms, boot room and an extensive plot of land to side and rear of the property.”
It adds: “The property is approached by patio pathway leading to front and side with brick wall surround.
“The ground-floor accommodation comprises of the hallway with newly fitted flooring keeping in with the period of this property. From the hallway is a lengthy kitchen which has plenty of worktop space for you to prepare meals.
“The sitting/dining room is bright and airy as well as the second lounge both great for relaxing in. The ground floor also benefits from a boot room and cloakroom.
“The rear garden is a huge plot of land and is a great opportunity for development and for an exciting project to take place.
