The sale of the plot, which is 520ft in length and is 65ft wide, does not come with any planning permission in place but experts think it would be quite straight forward to get consent to build on the land.

The 1930s bungalow belonged to an elderly couple for 40 years and they are said to have taken pride in maintaining the back garden.

But in the years leading up to their deaths last year, it had become too much for them and became overgrown.

The three bedroom home, that needs a complete renovation, is in a residential suburb of Poole, Dorset, and is just a short drive to the beach.

Estate agents Leader Fox say they have had high levels of interest with more than 20 viewings taking place over four days.

The property currently has 1,220 sq ft of living space with a kitchen, lounge, dining room, three bedrooms and a bathroom.

If the buyer decided not to knock it down, the house would need a complete overhaul.

It is being offered for sale to cash buyers only and by formal tender.

Katie Fox, from Leader Fox, said: “We’ve had a couple of families interested in doing up because of the size of the garden and we’ve had a few developers and some keen DIY enthusiasts.

“The real benefit is it’s an acre plot, which lends itself to so many opportunities.

“You can tell the garden was really loved by the family at one point, but it is a bit overgrown now and could do with some attention. Everything in the area has been built on, you just don’t get a plot of this size anymore.

“The property is near to local schools and has everything on your doorstep and it’s not far from Bournemouth.

The property is a probate sale and the estate agents are looking for cash buyers, or people in a ‘proceedable position’ who have either sold their house or have nothing to sell and not reliant on a chain for offers over £300,000.

There are no more viewings available a virtual tour is available and offers need to be sent in writing by midday tomorrow, January 13.
