Some rundown tin bungalows with stunning views have gone on the market - and they can be yours for just £1 a pair!
The battered houses made of corrugated sheets sit in a tiny mining village are on offer for just 50p each due to their poor state - but they do come with their own designated parking spaces. The tattered terraced buildings in Gwent, Wales, can be easily developed and are on offer for next to nothing.
Sean Roper, of Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions, said no internal inspections of the bungalows have been made due to their current condition but he doesn't expect them to hang around at that price. Accepting they need some work, they've been offered for cheap in the hope someone will bring them back to life.
He said: "The two tin bungalows are currently in a poor state of repair. However they do occupy an elevated position with views across the valley and do offer scope for improvement. The bungalows in their current state need some work, but they may well be able to be renovated for AirBnB-type use or to be refurbished and rented out.
"Alternatively the plot of land that they are on may offer the possibility for alternative development such as the construction of a detached dwelling, subject, of course, to necessary planning consents. The village of Crumlin benefits from a range of local amenities and further shopping facilities are available in the nearby towns of Newbridge and Cwmbran, which is south on the A4042.
"Bungalow one is believed to contain an entrance, lounge, kitchen WC and two bedrooms while the second property has a lounge, bedroom and kitchen area. 'There is land to the sides, rear and front, with a parking area. The properties, listed with a guide price of £1, are to be sold with vacant possession." The Paul Fosh Auctions online sale starts on December 12 and ends from 5pm on December 14.
It could be the UK's most affordable home, which makes the £30,000 listed home up for grabs earlier this month seem costly in comparison! The "unusual and quirky" Grade II cottage, named 'Bryn Tirion', overlooks a famous Welsh castle and dates back to 1841, but it needs a lot of TLC.
Situated in Harlech, the property boasts views of the town's medieval tower, Cardigan Bay, Harlech Castle, and the Snowdonia Mountain Range. Estate agents Tom Parry describe the historic cottage nestled in a wall as a 'once in a lifetime' opportunity, set to go under the hammer with a guide price of just £30k.
