Three-bedroom Berwick house on sale for just £35k

A three-bed semi in England’s northernmost town is on sale with a guide
price of just £35,000 – almost 40 times less than the average cost of a similarly
sized property in the capital.

The family home in Berwick, Northumberland, boasts a private garden,
driveway and two separate reception rooms and is just a stone’s throw 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.

The most expensive would cost you an eye-watering £30million – a luxury
flat in One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge. The average price of a three bed in the city
is £1,220,000.

By comparison the Berwick property, which has both a front and rear garden
and garage, is a steal at 37 times less than this.

The house, which is in some need of refurbishment, has two double bedrooms
and a single, as well as a lounge and separate dining and utility rooms.

It is set to be sold by auction on March 15.

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.

‘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.’
