A ivy-covered house in the Black Country is set to go under the hammer for just £5,000.

The house on Halesowen Street is up for auction

The two-bedroom property at Halesowen Street in Rowley Regis needs to be renovated but is expected to attract a number of bidders.

It features an enormous ivy growth, stretching up the front and across the roof.

The property will be sold by Bond Wolfe Auctions at Villa Park on December 11.

Jonathan Hackett, consultant director at Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “Distinctive properties like this are always a draw and the ultra-low guide price is certain to attract a lot of bidders, both buy-to-let investors and young people looking for a project to become their first home.

“As a result, we are running half a dozen group visits to this property to enable prospective bidders to have a look around and see for themselves just what a deal it offers.

"People can go to our website, look up the page for the Rowley Regis house and there will be a list of the times and dates for the site visits."

"The property is clearly in need of improvement work throughout, but still offers unbelievable value for money and a terrific opportunity for one lucky bidder."

The house, one of 164 lots up for auction, has a front garden and another garden behind it.


It also has a reception room, kitchen and bathroom with the first floor comprising of two bedrooms.

The house has a gas-fired central heating system, with the windows being UPVC double-glazed.

Bond Wolfe Auctions, which launched in January this year, has sold 503 lots out of 592 and raised more than £66.2 million.
