Two bedroom home could be yours for £100,000 – but wait until you see inside | The Sun
A TWO-BEDROOM home has been put on the market for £100,000 but there's a catch.
The first floor maisonette in Romford, Essex, was advertised as a potential project "in need of modernisation."
However, pictures of the interior reveal the property is actually uninhabitable, with a rusting bathtub propped up against the bathroom wall.
Savills Estate Agents listed the property and described it as: "A two bedroom first floor maisonette in need of modernisation, well located for the shopping and recreational amenities of the centre of Romford and Ilford."
The 'living-room' leaves much to be desired with outdated and peeling wallpaper, as well as moulding blue carpeted floor.
If house-hunters are searching for a renovation project they will be thrilled by the bare bones of a kitchen.

The location of the property is also "convenient for the amenities of Romford and Ilford."
