Challenging Caerphilly house requiring complete renovation sells at auction after keen interest

A house with great potential but needing complete renovation sold at auction.

The decoration, including a caramel coloured bathroom suite, dated interior and a surrounding overgrown garden, failed to deter bidders for the Caerphilly house.

Listed with a guide price of £155,000-plus the three bedroom, semi detached property, at  133, Pontygwindy Road,  Caerphilly, sold online at Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions for £170,000.

Gemma Vaughan, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “Although the house requires complete renovation, both inside and out, including wrestling with the overgrown garden to get it under control,  underneath it all are the basics for a really lovely family home.

“The property does present a few challenges not the least of which is the current decor but bidders were able to look beyond this and see the potential to create a good-sized family home with gardens to the front, side and rear.

“The house offers great accommodation. There is a hallway and two reception rooms on the ground floor with the kitchen and  bathroom with the three bedrooms on the first floor,  all of which would benefit from complete renovation.”

The property comprises entrance hallway, two reception rooms, kitchen and bathroom. The first floor offers three bedrooms. The property which benefits from being a short drive to local shops and amenities with good transport links,  is set in gardens to the front, side and rear.
