Cheshire home goes viral after appearing on Rightmove in ‘horrendous state’

"Whilst in need of a complete renovation, this home comes with bags of potential."

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.
