Four bedroom London property with a garden goes on sale for £750k – but the inside is in need of some serious work

THIS four-bedroom property may look perfectly normal from the outside - but it is in need of some serious work.

The terraced house in Streatham Hill, South London, is set to go up for auction with a guide price of £750,000 next month.

Complete with a large back garden and two living rooms, it could make the perfect family home for those looking to live in the capital.

But potential buyers will have their work cut out for them if they do opt to buy, as the house is stripped bare and covered in grime.

Pictures of the freehold property show the downstairs bathroom covered in dirt, along with brown stains splattered in a broken toilet.

The kitchen next door festers under thick coats of grime while outdated cabinets hang from the walls.

Upstairs, the bathroom floor is smothered in muck, while damp patches ooze from the bedrooms nearby.

In almost every room, wallpaper can be seen peeling from the walls, with flaps of plaster hanging from the ceiling of one.

With a bit of work, the garden could become a private outdoor haven - but for now, thick foliage shields any chance of light and ivy twists its way up a surrounding fence.

On the listing, Savills notes: "The property is need in need of modernisation which presents the purchaser with the ideal opportunity to carry out works to their own specification."

It adds it's in a "highly convenient location" close to Streatham High Road and Tooting Bec.

The house is listed as lot 708 and will go up for auction at 9am on June 14.
