Garish two-bedroom home frozen in the 80s goes under the hammer for £30,000

A two-bedroom home frozen in the 80s with a garish bathroom and floral carpets is being auctioned off for £30,000.

The terraced home comes with an ancient-looking kitchen and a bathroom more than 30 years old, when bright-coloured suites were fashionable.

Images show a brown carpet and aging wallpaper in the living room which has a built-in fire.

DerbyshireLive reports floral carpets can also be seen in both the bedrooms inside the property in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, which is well-located close to the town centre and Hepworth Retail Park.

Agents admit that the property is in need of major renovation and has a relatively low guide price of between £29,000 and £34,000.

The property is scheduled to be auctioned off by Bond Wolfe on September 15.

The home is on the market with a starting guide price of £29,000 which would allow any buyer to make in-roads into the housing market and make some profit.

It would clearly need some renovation to bring it up to today’s standards.

But after renewing the bathroom suite much of the work needed would be mainly cosmetic and about renewing the existing decor.

Now vacant, the end-of-terrace property stands back from the road, with a small front garden.

A back garden also exists, but it is overgrown so any prospective buyer will have plenty of work to transform it, reports StaffordshireLive.

There are two reception rooms and a useful cupboard under the stairs which can be used to hide away clutter or used as storage space.

Wooden panelling covers the walls of the kitchen, which has a standalone oven and hob.

It also has a kitchen sink and fridge, complete with cupboards where crockery or cleaning items can be put away.

On the first floor are two bedrooms and a very dated bathroom which comes in a lovely turquoise colour and has some even more attractive floral tiles

The large bathroom comes with blue carpeting and blue tiling, along with the sink, toilet and bath.

There is also an additional storage space in a slatted wooden cupboard opposite the garish bathroom suite.

There is also floral carpet in both the bedrooms inside the property, which agents admit is in need of ‘major renovation.’

Agents say the garden is large but it is also hugely overgrown.

There is some space to spare tools needed to spruce-up the outside space in the form of a large wooden shed which is included in the price.

The home does boast some UPVC windows, according to the seller Bond Wolfe Auctions.

Viewings of the kitsch property are scheduled to be held between now and September 12.
