A standard four-bedroom terraced house sells for £150,000 – but there’s one huge catch that might make you pull out your wallet
A NORMAL four-bedroom terraced house has gone on sale for less than £150,000 – but there’s a huge catch that might force you to break out your wallet.
The modest property in Caerphilly, South Wales has a guide price of just £148,000.
But local real estate agents were shocked to discover that the rear annexe of the home was occupied by a large indoor swimming pool.
The South Wales Dales home’s pool has been described as ‘in disrepair’ and in need of ‘more than a little maintenance’ but makes the home a truly unique sale.
Paul Fosh Auctions real estate agent Angie Davey said: “If I had known that, I might have brought my cossie.
“From the outside the house looks like many others, with nothing to suggest that it differs from many others in the South Wales valleys.
“People often go to great lengths to make their townhouse a little different than others in the row and this one certainly achieved that with the pool.
“The house is deceptively spacious and clearly needs a complete refurbishment including the pool in the rear annex which has clearly seen better days.”
With a guide price of over £148,000, the four bedroom, two bathroom property is situated in the sought after area of Bedwas.
It also consists of a living room, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, garden, garage and the addition of the conservatory where the pool is located.
The house is being sold vacant and agents said it could fetch around £1,100 a month after the refurbishment.
The property will go under the hammer at Paul Fosh Auctions’ next online auction, which begins at 12pm on Tuesday 11 April and ends at 5pm on Thursday 13 April.
It comes after a new map revealed the cheapest places to snag a seaside town in Britain.
