Sydney Property Described As ‘Disgusting’ And ‘Practically Unliveable’ Expected To Fetch $1.1 Million
We all know the Sydney property market is ridiculous. Even though prices have dropped dramatically compared to a few years ago, there are still homes being sold at auction at quite frankly outrageous prices.
Like this home in Sydney's inner west suburb of Leichhardt.
The suburb is a pricey one to buy into, but that's usually a combination of a good property and the postcode. But this three-bedroom, one-bathroom place on Hubert Street is a b***dy heap.
Even the estate agent isn't crash hot on it.
The online listing for the property has a warning at the top saying: "Enter at own risk."
Sure, we all know this is a proper knock down and redo kind of property but it would probably kill you to know that it's expected to fetch around $1.1 million when it goes to auction next week.
David Eastway, from Hudson McHugh, the estate agent for the property, told news.com.au: "This is the worst house I've ever seen, and originally we wanted to use the word Fugly to sell it, but we obviously changed that.
"The previous homeowner was in the property right up until his passing, but I'm not sure how he lived there. He was a bit of a hoarder and the property is now completely unliveable.
"You could see dirt through the floorboards, you couldn't access the backyard at all. It was an absolute shocker."
Usually when you look at a property listing online, you get to peruse through numerous photos and maybe even a drone video. But not with this bad boy.
No, there aren't many photos because it's simply too bl***y difficult.
Mr Eastway continued: "You really don't want to stand in the property long enough to take photos. The inside isn't interesting, as realistically any buyer would just knock down the whole home."
At the end of the day, the reason why this stunning property is set to sell for so much is all to do with land. Mr Eastway says this home is more than a third larger than your average Leichhardt property and therefore it will fetch a decent sum from someone who 'knows what they're doing'.
So don't lament too much that this home, which has been described as 'completely unliveable', will probably get more than a million dollarydoos. It's simply just that there's a bucketload of space to work with and the new owners will likely transform it into something brilliant.
