Chelsea Flat Listed for Just £50,000, but Requires a Major Cleanup – Including a Bathtub Filled with Junk
A studio apartment has recently been put up for sale with an enticing guide price of £50,000, though potential buyers should be prepared for a substantial cleaning project.
From the exterior, the building exudes an air of grandeur and luxury. However, upon entering the first-floor flat located on Daver Court, one is met with the sight of bin bags filled with rubbish and clutter strewn throughout every room.
The clutter is so pervasive that taking a shower or bath is impossible, as the bathtub itself is crammed with junk. As for cooking, the kitchen counter is overrun with dirty used cups, random scraps of wrapping paper, and grimy tea towels hanging on the wall.
In the living area, abandoned furniture pieces like a chest of drawers and a broken lamp contribute to the overall disarray.
Nonetheless, for those willing to roll up their sleeves and undertake a thorough cleaning effort, this property could represent a significant opportunity. According to Foxtons, other properties in this sought-after Chelsea neighborhood typically sell for approximately £1,582,000, making this flat a markedly more affordable option, despite its current state.
The studio is currently listed with Auction House London and is scheduled to be auctioned on October 25th at 8:45 am.
The property’s advertisement states, “The property is situated in the highly sought-after area of Chelsea. It is situated on a road close to local shops and amenities. The open spaces of Ranelagh Gardens are within easy reach. Transport links are provided by Sloane Square underground station, Circle, and District line.”
