A Derbyshire home seemingly frozen in time back in the 1980s is up for auction with a starting guide price of less than £30,000. The two-bedroom terrace at 12 Weston Street, Swadlincote, has a dated kitchen and a bathroom which looks to have been fitted more than 30 years ago when bright-coloured suites were all the rage.

Pictures from inside show there is a brown floral carpet and aging wallpaper in the living room, complete with a built-in fire. There is also floral carpet in both the bedrooms inside the property, which is well-located close to the town centre’s High Street and Hepworth Retail Park.

In need of major renovation, the property comes with a relatively low guide price of between £29,000 and £34,000. It will be auctioned off by Bond Wolfe on Thursday, September 15.

The vacant end-of-terrace property stands back from the road, with a small front garden. There is also a back garden, but it is overgrown so the prospective buyer will have plenty of work to do outside, Staffordshire Live reports.

There are two reception rooms, a useful cupboard under the stairs. The kitchen has wooden panelling on the walls, with a standalone oven and hob. It also has a kitchen sink and fridge, complete with some cupboards.

On the first floor are two bedrooms and the very dated bathroom. There is also a storeroom outside.

The large bathroom comes with blue carpeting and blue tiling, along with the sink, toilet and bath. The garden is large but overgrown and comes complete with a large wooden shed.

The property does however have UPVC, Bond Wolfe Auctions has said. Viewings are scheduled to take place between Wednesday, August 31, and Monday, September 12.
