Inside £750,000 house with boarded-up windows, broken floors and disused toilet

A dilapidated house with boarded up windows, holes in its floors and tape across the toilet warning “DO NOT USE” has gone on the market for £750,000.

The centrally-located three-bed mews terrace house is set to be snapped up by a buyer eager to secure the pricey doer-upper.

Winkworth estate agents, who are selling the property in the west London borough of Hammersmith, described it as being “in need of total renovation.”

The listing continued: “The property currently comprises reception room/kitchen and garage on the ground floor, with the first floor offering three bedrooms and bathroom.

“There is also the advantage of a private rear garden.

“There is also the advantage of a private rear garden.

“There is scope to further extend, subject to the usual necessary consents, with other houses on the street having added an additional storey.

“Ideally located for a range of amenities which include a number of local independent shops, delis, pubs and restaurants. A range of transport links are close to hand.”

The house has three bedrooms, a shared bathroom, an open plan reception and kitchen area and a garage.

Its neighbours are tidily kept, with the pad sticking out for its broken windows and boarded up garage door.

The upstairs toilet has been totally destroyed, with “do not use” tape across the toilet and sink.

All avocado-green appliances are streaked with filth, while the carpets are caked in dirt.

Downstairs, the kitchen is gutted, with only a microwave, boaler, stove and red cupboards remaining.

In the adjoining reception area there is a large hole in the wall, with the stairs stripped back to the timber.

Two of the bedrooms appear to have part of a tree that appears to be growing in them.

The third is in no better condition, with a gaping hole in the floor.

The house has a small west-facing garden, reached through wide doors in the kitchen.

Close to Hammersmith and Goldhawk Road tube lines, the house is just 18 minutes from the centre of London.

It is also located in an area abundant with shops, pubs and restaurants.

Director of Winkworth, Ben Hunt, said it was a “fantastic” area for those looking for a village-like atmosphere within reach of central London.

“The area offers a number of fabulous pubs and restaurants, as well as stunning riverside walks and also easy access out of London,” he said.

“There is a real mix of people, young professionals, couples and families, with a real community feel.”
