Cheapest house in Britain on offer for £0

June 14, 2013

Ever dreamed of owning your own house in the Welsh valleys? Well now you can pick up a three bedroom Victorian terraced house, all for the grand total of… nothing.

Local auctioneer Paul Fosh, who has put the house up for auction with a reserve of £0, described the property as “little more than a shell requiring complete renovation”.

The house is in the former mining village Nantymoel, in the Ogmore Valley, two miles from Bridgend.

Fosh said he had not inspected the building, but advised that it was “in need of complete renovation”.

Fosh’s website shows a terraced house with boarded up windows and an abandoned leather sofa in the front garden, which is presumably included in the price.

The news comes just months after Liverpool council announced its “Homes for £1” scheme, in which it offered 20 local residents the chance to buy houses in Granby and Picton for a pound each.
