A crumbling shell of a house in Coldharbour Lane is expected to sell for £400,000 when it’s auctioned off at the end of July, writes Kit Heren…
The four-storey, five-bedroom house on the boarders of Brixton and Camberwell has stood empty for around 30 years, auctioneers say – “and requires a full program of works”.
Large metal support rods are the only thing keeping the house up in places, Auction House London add. Photos on the property’s listing show several smashed and boarded-up windows, a metal grille over the front door and flaky ceilings.
“Prospective buyers enter the building entirely at their own risk and must only enter when accompanied by the vendor’s builder who will be present at all viewings,” the listing continues.
Andrew Binstock, director of Auction House London, said: “The property has been empty for approximately 30 years and it requires a full program of works.
“It comprises a mid-terrace house arranged over lower ground and three upper floors.
“It is offered in shell condition, but there’s the potential to convert it into three flats subject to planning permission.
“The seller wishes to remain anonymous.”
The auction will take place remotely at 12 pm on July 30.
