Three-bedroom home for sale for £300,000 – but people are shocked by what's inside | The Sun
HOUSE hunters have been left stunned after spotting the state of a £300,000 property that has been put on the market.
The three-bedroom property in Orpington, south-east London was described by agents selling the property as "requiring modernisation" – despite the house being in a shocking state.
Images of the semi-detached house show a crumbling exterior, with boarded up windows and rubbish scattered across the front drive.
Inside, the kitchen appears to have been completely ransacked with cupboard doors missing, electrics ripped from the walls, and the entire worktops and flooring covered in rubble and rubbish.
A mattress lays in the midst of chaos in the living room, where holes have been ripped through the walls.
Dust, paper, rubble and glass from the smashed windows lay across the dirty floors.

The bedrooms upstairs have holes in the floorboards which have been ripped up and brackets across the windows.
The cistern of the toilet has also been destroyed and it appears the glass at the front of the shower has been smashed.
And the overgrown garden area is in need of some TLC, and a skip to get rid of all the discarded items.
The property was listed for auction last month with an eye-watering guide price of £300,000, but went unsold.

One said: “£300,000 for a house that needs extensive work and is clearly in a rough area?
The house next door is also a sh**hole, no one would want to live there.”
Another said: “I appreciate the arrow telling me which one of the two s**t hole properties I’d be buying.”
A third said: “People must try though the next door looks like it has new windows.”
Auctioneers Barnard Marcus describe the house online as: Freehold two floor semi-detached house requiring modernisation,"Full vacant possession."
