Buyers get shock as five-bed terraced home hits the market for £450MILLION after listing error

-

- Advertisment -

Keen homehunters were left shocked after spotting that a modest five-bed terraced house was put on the market for £450million in a listing error. 

The unloved Victorian pad in Folkestone, Kent, has shabby interiors and dated décor – as well as a ridiculous asking price. 

Paint is peeling off the walls at the front of the mid-terrace home on Victoria Grove, and the garden is overgrown with shrubs taking over the outdoor space. 

It boasts four reception rooms, two bathrooms and a showroom and is split over four floors – and the estate agent insists that the pad has ‘bags of potential.’

Many original features, like gorgeous fireplaces, come with the Kent home – but new owners will have their work cut out refitting the current lacklustre kitchen and bleak sitting rooms.

Despite the setbacks, it was marked as being for sale for close to half a billion pounds – which would make it the most expensive home in the country.

Adding insult to injury, after spending £450million on the property, new owners would have had to also fork out £25 per year for a permit to park on the street.

Potential buyers were quick to poke fun at the obvious price listing error.

The mid-terrace in Folkestone, Kent is on the market with Purplebricks and advertised on Rightmove.

One home buyer – called Niall – joked: ‘Cost of housing these days, madness.

‘Still, £90,000,000 per bedroom isn’t bad.’

A second – named Josh – quipped: ‘Great price.’

Another added: ‘Bargain.’

HM Land Registry records show that the home was previously sold for just £5,000 in 1995 – meaning the current owner would be making a massive profit if the listing price was real.

The listing says it is an ‘opportunity to turn Into apartments’ and said it has ‘bags of potential’ and its ‘ideal for those looking for a project.’

It continues: ‘Potential for conversion and extending.

‘A large Victorian mid terraced property with many original features, centrally located within walking distance of the town centre and Folkestone Central station.

‘Set over four floors: lower ground, upper ground, first floor, second floor and attic.

‘There is also a good sized, southerly facing walled garden to the rear.

The gaudy, cluttered interiors will need an update - that's if the new owners can afford one after splashing £450million on the property
