One-bedroom flat in seaside town could be yours for £18,000 – but you'll have to prepare yourself for the inside
A ONE-BEDROOM flat in a seaside town could be yours for a bargain £18,000 – but the interior could put you off.
While the top-floor property boasts a spacious living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, it is nowhere near ready to move into.
The rooms come with a thick coating of dust and rubble and great piles of abandoned furniture.
There is also paint and plaster peeling from the damp-looking walls, and newspaper and what look like takeaway leaflets littered on the floors.
It is in such a bad state, its Rightmove listing warns "internal upgrading is required prior to habitation".
If you can look beyond the mess, the one-bed flat in the "sought after" village of West Kilbride in North Ayrshire, Scotland, comes with several redeeming features.

On top of the spacious living areas, there is also a large communal garden to the rear.
It is also well-located close to West Kilbride train station, and only a short distance from the beach at Ardneil Bay.
Future Property Auctions Glasgow, which is auctioning the property, describes it as being "nestled in a truly idyllic location" in the "affluent family area".
The "perfect investment" flat is going up for auction on April 21 and is expected to fetch £18,000.
