One-bedroom home could be yours for just £30,000

A ONE-BEDROOM home has gone on the market for just £30,000 – but every would-be buyer has been left baffled by the same unusual feature.

The terraced property in Barnoldswick, Lincolnshire has a huge amount of space for the ultra-low price, covering 1,077 square feet.

It boasts two reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor, as well as a bedroom and shower room on the first floor.

But sharp-eyed property fans will quickly notice a very bizarre design flaw.

The bathroom appears to have been built inside a bedroom, rather than a specifically designed cubicle.

The room is 14ft by 13ft, meaning the shower, toilet and sink are completely dwarfed by the space.

It’s also been carpeted, while walls are covered with floral pink wallpaper – an unusual choice in a bathroom.

There is at least 10ft of space between the toilet and the white corner shower.

It’s likely the room was never designed for its purpose in the first place. The toilet facilities may originally have been built into an outhouse behind the property.

However, with some renovations the home will likely be a top investment.

Despite only having one designated bedroom, there’s an attic upstairs, giving the new owner an opportunity to rework the space.

The property will go under the hammer in May.

Auctioneers Allsop say the home can be found in York Street.

“The shops and amenities of Barnoldswick Town Square are to the north and Colne Rail station is approximately 5.7 miles to the south,” they say.

“The A56 is to the south east and the A59 is to the north west with Letcliffe Park is to the south.”

FRIGHTMOVE

Social media users were left stunned by the layout of the room with the toilet.

One said: “I have no words.”

Another wrote: “Nice bit of legroom.”

A third commented: “Could turn into a lovely en-suite.”

A fourth added: “F*** me, for thirty large I’d have it.”

It’s not the only property with an unwelcome surprise in store on the market.

‘NO WORDS’

A whopping seven-bed pad with two hot tubs is available in County Clare, Ireland for €130,000 – but it needs a complete refurb.

Agents admit the house needs “significant investment”, but believe it could one day be a stunning B&B.

Meanwhile, the bathroom is in a complete state, and the walls of the kitchen are cracked and split.
