Derelict house engulfed by overgrown trees is on sale for £450,000 and it’s a pretty good deal
Imagine your ideal London home: three bedrooms, a garden, and a mere stone’s throw from a lush park. Now picture it entirely engulfed by overgrown bushes and trees.
Well, this sad, sorry excuse for a property in is up for sale for a whopping £450,000 ($582,151) and, honestly, that’s a pretty good deal, for London.
A neighbour told the Evening Standard that the property’s former occupant had planted garden flora “quite a few years ago” and the house had been completely covered for a long time.
According to Zoopla, the current average property value for houses on Ruthin Road is £970,700 ($1,254,606). And, given that the average property value in London is currently at £490,718, the house — which will be sold by public auction on Tuesday — is actually a pretty sweet deal.
The RightMove listing notes that the property — currently sitting vacant — is “in need of complete modernisation.” Just in case you hadn’t already worked that out.
