This house could be bought at auction in Wales for just a few pounds

This three-bedroom house in Port Talbot is going to auction with a guide price of absolutely nothing.

Yes, that’s right, this property is priceless. Could it really be yours for less than a pint of milk?

Listed as a semi-detached house, although it is unclear where the actual neighbouring house has gone, the home has been subjected to fire damage and will require extensive refurbishment.

Lanleigh Payne, residential property specialist at Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions who are handling the sale, says: “The property has a nil reserve so, depending on the interest at the auction, this house could potentially see a bidder get it for just a few pounds.”

The property company describes the house as located on the corner of the street, and comprising of a sitting room, kitchen, dining room and rear lounge. There are three bedrooms upstairs.

Outside, the property has a driveway and front and rear gardens but, at the moment, no neighbours.

Lanleigh says: “Despite all the recent fire damage and internal dilapidation of this semi-detached house, it is situated in the very popular area of Sandfields in the town and once it has been renovated could make a very desirable three-bedroom home.”

But if you are expecting to purchase a house for the same price as a Latte, you might well be disappointed.

Lanleigh adds: “We have already registered a lot of hits on our website and calls to the office about this property so, despite its sorry state currently, we are expecting keen interest from potential buyers at the auction.”

The priceless property goes under the hammer with Paul Fosh on Thursday, June 14 starting at 5pm at The Park Inn Hotel, Llanedyrn, Cardiff
