The property could be yours for as little as £1

The property has no reserve price and could make the perfect family home. However, it will need a lot of attention from the lucky bidder.

Unfortunately, the house was heavily damaged by a fire and is still suffering the consequences. The fire started from the house next door and, while this one goes to auction, the other house will be possibly restored or offered on the market in the near future.

For guideline, an adjacent, three-bedroom semi-detached property is on the market for £85,000.
