THIS two-bedroom flat could be the ideal family home – but potential buyers should prepare themselves for a mammoth spring clean.
The £35k property on Northbourne St, Gateshead, might look like an easy bargain from the outside but a quick peek behind the front door might change your mind.

Every room inside the first floor flat – from the living room to the bedrooms – is filled with rubbish and clutter left by the previous tenants.
In the kitchen, not only has the washing up been left in the sink but the counters are littered with empty bottles, buckets of paint and empty wrappers.
Upstairs isn’t much better, with loose wires dangling from ceilings and rubbish sprawled across the floor.
The main bedroom appears a lot less cramped than the other rooms, and features less rubbish. But the dingy brown curtains, torn wallpaper and a limp mattress that has seen better days are calling out for a revamp.
The biggest challenge for any new owners to tackle will most definitely be the bathroom – with a floor not visible under a thick layer of clutter.
The bathtub has been filled with old clothes and there are dirty towels hanging across the walls, as well as a mysterious brown splattering in the toilet bowl.
With a thorough deep clean, this property is not only a bargain but offers potential for those looking to get on the property ladder.
If you’re willing to tackle the mess, that is.
The first floor flat is also near bus links and there’s even a Domino’s around the corner, so you can stop for a well-earned snack during the home renovation.
The property will be put up for auction by Auction House North East on 31 May 2022.
