Three-Bedroom House Up For Sale With Completely Overgrown Garden


Three-Bedroom House Up For Sale With Completely Overgrown Garden

A house has gone up for sale in Greater Manchester but buyers will likely need a couple of green thumbs to tackle the overgrown back garden.

The three-bedroom property would be a dream for anyone looking for a fixer-upper they can put their own stamp on and who isn't scared of rolling their sleeves up and channelling their inner Alan Titchmarsh to take on the jungle-style back garden.

Situated in Davyhulme in Trafford, the house is open to offers over £270,000.


Estate agent Trading Places say the home is in 'need of modernisation' but that it's in an 'ideal location for excellent schools' and transport links.

The property comprises entrance hall, two reception rooms, kitchen, three bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet.

There's also a brick-built outhouse and let's not forget that 'generous, fully enclosed lawned garden to the rear'.

Although the garden might be a bit of a daunting prospect to some buyers, a man from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, recently showed us all what a bit of hard work can achieve after he created a full-on Mediterranean-style paradise in his garden complete with swimming pool, a hot tub sheltered in a large wooden gazebo, a swing seat overlooking the pool and a built-in BBQ and cocktail bar.

Guy Young spent a very reasonable £6,500 ($3,700) creating his dream garden and carried out all work by himself after watching YouTube videos for inspiration and tips.

The 34-year-old spent around two years working on the garden with the help of a couple of pals and completed it last month.

Guy said: "When the sun is out it definitely feels like I'm on holiday in Spain, especially when I'm sat in the pool drinking a margarita.

"I have no previous building experience at all, it was all done by watching YouTube tutorials and by trial and error. I am really proud with what I have achieved but also very shocked I was able to do it."

To keep costs down Guy even hand-dug the 12ft by 5ft by 5ft pool.

"The digging part took one-and-a-half months," he said. "After that we had to laying the base using reinforced concrete. We had to hand-mix one tonne of concrete." Good effort, mate.
