Another of the rooms in the property – with old carpets and broken furniture scattered across it. The home does come with a brick outbuilding and rear yard, however
It comes complete with a rear yard, a brick outbuilding and double glazed windows.
The kitchen, complete with a smashed up acoustic guitar, has no oven, but does include a stained fridge.
The adjoining front room has boarded up windows and an upturned sofa set amongst dirty duvets and crumbling plaster.
Images of the upstairs reveal heavily fire-damaged bedrooms with filthy stains covering most of the walls.
Meanwhile the bathroom, which features a toilet with no seat and painted a garish purple, is optimistically described as having ‘three piece suite comprising panelled bath and pedestal wash basin, mid flush W.C., single radiator.’

The property has a £7,000 asking price and will be auctioned on May 13 by JH Walter. Other houses on the street are worth in the region of £97,000, according to one property valuation website.
While many parts of Britain are going through a housing boom and the average London home now in the region of £400,000, the property is believed to be the cheapest in the country.
It will be sold with a 10 per cent deposit and the agents say it will only take eight weeks for completion.
The house was hit by an arson attack on July 17 last year. Crews from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service were called at 9.30pm after neighbours reported seeing smoke billowing from the property. No one was inside the house at the time of the attack.
Arsonists set fire to the shed and the blaze quickly spread to the first floor of the property..
Unfortunately, the back yard is also covered in rubbish and debris. The home will be auctioned on May 13 and its owner will have to put down a 10 per cent deposit
The front of the property – which estate agents say will only take eight weeks for completion. Average house prices across the country have surged by £14,000
Across the country average house prices have surged by £14,000, or 8.8 per cent in a single year, rising at their fastest pace since 2010 the latest house price index has revealed.
Last month experts warned the skyrocketing prices were ‘approaching madness’ after data showed house prices jumped another 2.4 per cent in February alone.
Earlier this month a three-bedroom semi-detached property in Erdington, Birmingham, fetched its full £114,950 asking price despite being advertised with every room full of rubbish.
