THIS three-bed semi with a garden could be yours for just £35,000 – but the inside needs a bit of work.
The family home in Berwick, Northumberland, boasts a private garden, driveway and two separate reception rooms – and lies just a stone’s throw away from the coast.
In contrast, the cheapest three-bed in London would set you back £98,000 but there is a drawback – it's a boat moored on the River Thames.
It is also a whopping 37 times cheaper than the capital’s most expensive three-bed – a luxury flat in One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge worth an eye-watering £30 million.
The Berwick house, which is in some need of refurbishment, has two double bedrooms and a single, a lounge and separate dining and utility rooms.
It is will be sold by auction on March 15 – but prospective buyers might want to use any leftover cash to spruce up the decor.
And while the property boasts a spacious back garden, it will need some work – as the grass is completely overgrown.
Iain Weatherhead, of Pattinson Estate Agents, which is marketing the property said: "It's been a family home for a long time and it's located in a fine area.
"It's got all of the attributes that you look for in a family home with three bedrooms as well as the driveway and its garden.
"All of those features point in the direction of a developer wanting to re-market it to sell for about £150,000.
"It does need some work, and in the current climate we're not really finding people who have the money ready to go and do the work that's required.
"It would be the perfect opportunity for a developer, who could do it up and sell to a first-time buyer."
He added: "But it's also a good opportunity for a family who have the money to make the improvements themselves.
"It's in a great area and in a prime spot. It has a lot going for it and it's not far from good schools are. It would be a great place for a family to live, definitely.
"We have started taking bids already and have had a lot of interest."
