Three-bed London house could be yours for £415k – but wait until you see inside

A THREE-BED family home in London has gone on the market for £415,000 – but there's a very big catch.

The property in leafy Surbiton boasts two reception rooms and gardens at both the front and back.


Even better, planning permission has already been granted for a single-storey extension and loft conversion, meaning the house could be a great investment.

But anyone who hates getting their hands dirty with DIY and gardening might prefer to skip a viewing.

That's because the semi-detached home will need plenty of work, both inside and out, before it's fit to live in.

In the kitchen, part of the ceiling appears to have fallen away and there's significant water damage to walls and counter-tops.

The bathroom is also in a bad state, with wallpaper peeling away over the bath.

But the biggest challenge of all can be found outside.

The garden is completely overgrown, with untrimmed brambles towering over the fence.

The whopping bush has also grown over a little shed, and only a small stretch of grass is visible beneath the branches.
