A three-bedroom house in Cheshire has caught the eyes of North West house-hunters for all the wrong reasons.
You don’t get many semi-detached family homes coming on the market for only £90,000 in the highly-sought-after region of Cheshire, so it’s understandable that this three-bedroom property would have grabbed the attention of people currently on the property search in Widnes.
The average price of a home in the industrial town on the banks of the River Mersey will set you back around £180,000 – so £90,000 really is a steal.
But it’s not really the value for money that’s got people talking, though.
It’s the crumbling walls with ripped and stripped-back wallpaper, boarded-up windows, filthy floors, overgrown gardens, rubbish scattered from top to bottom, and just about everything in between.
Not every property listed on leading property website Rightmove must be in a ready-to-move condition, and it’s not uncommon for ‘project’ houses to be advertised to property developers or those prepared to take on the work – but a house in this state really isn’t something you see very often.
It’s not hard to see why people have branded the property as being in a “horrendous state” on social media.
Despite rubbish piled high in every room and dirty plates strewn across the un-wiped kitchen sides though, according to the Daily Mail, optimistic estate agents are confident of attracting a buyer.
They are urging “keen-eyed investors” to snap up the property.
In the description for the property on Rightmove, estate agents said: “This good-sized three-bedroom semi-detached home sits in a popular location close to several highly-regarded schools, a variety of stores and some excellent transport links.
“Whilst in need of a complete renovation, this home comes with bags of potential.
“The living areas are bright and roomy, it’s nicely laid out, the three bedrooms are well proportioned, it has a decent sized bathroom, and a sizeable garden plot with lots of promise.”
The exceptionally-priced property also boasts an entrance hall, lounge and kitchen, as well as both front and rear gardens, and off-street parking too, so it’s not all bad.
We’re sure somebody with a bit of imagination can make this home thrive in the future.

Portugal deny claims Ronaldo threatened to leave World Cup after being benched
Portugal have denied recent claims that Cristiano Ronaldo threatened to leave the 2022 World Cup after he was benched before their match against Switzerland.
Speaking in an official statement, the Portuguese FA rubbished a number of reports that their all-time leading goalscorer and national hero threatened to leave the tournament following manager Fernando Santos’ decision to drop him ahead of the game in the round of 16.
Ironically, the previous European champions weren’t left in short supply of goals, as they went on to win in a staggering 6-1 victory against the Swiss, with Ronaldo only coming on for 17 minutes at the end.
Nevertheless, the Portugal Football Federation (FPF) has insisted that no such conversation took place between the player and head coach Santos. As per national outlet A Bola, Ronaldo has apparently also made it clear that his country’s success at Qatar 2022 is his top priority.
The FPF went on to clarify in the statement: “Cristiano Ronaldo builds up a unique track record every day at the service of the national team and the country, which must be respected and which attests to the unquestionable degree of commitment to the national team.”
They also went on to thank him for his dedication and continued contribution to the squad by coming on as a substitute regardless of his reaction to being dropped.
The statement concludes by saying that the “players, coaches and FPF structure is, as it has been since the first day, fully committed and enthusiastic in building what the country wants to be Portugal’s best-ever participation in a World Cup.

Peter Kay issues heartfelt thanks to Manchester fans and teases ANOTHER big announcement
Peter Kay has sent a lovely message to fans in Manchester after making his triumphant return to the live scene last weekend.
The Bolton comedian has just ticked off the first two nights of a mammoth run at the AO Arena, which includes 42 Manchester shows between now and 2025.
On his opening night – his first real venture into the spotlight since he largely stepped away from the public eye 12 years ago – he was moved to tears by the standing ovation he received before he’d even started the show.
And now Peter has issued a heartfelt thank you message.
He said in a statement: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to the first shows in Manchester.
“It was incredible to be part of such a happy experience.
“Everybody deserves a bit of joy. Here’s to a lot more in the shows to come!!”
And that’s not all – his post also hinted that there’s yet another announcement to come (because apparently more than 100 tour dates and breaking the internet with ticket demand wasn’t enough).
