Estate agents often use the term leniently but a house that really can be described as a wreck has gone on sale for £2 million in Abingdon Road, Kensington, one of London’s most sought after addresses.
Agents Crayson say it has massive potential and that the three floored property could be expanded if granted planning permission. The firm reckons that as is it could be converted into a home with three bedrooms, threes bathrooms and open planning living on the ground floor.
‘This opportunity is so exciting. Wrecks like this in one of London’s great residential areas don’t come along very often,’ said a spokesman.
The property also has a front and back garden and the original back gate would have been used for coal deliveries from the street.
From the outside it looks like the other pretty terraced houses in the street. But when you open the green painted door with its quirky bird door knocker the amount of work needed to bring it up to scratch becomes evident.
There is currently no wall between the hall and front room, paint is peeling, wires hang from the ceilings and walls and the staircase is a little rickety to say the least. There is open pipe work and the windows have seen better days.
But Abingdon Road runs perpendicular to Kensington High Street, one of the best known streets in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea, not far from Kensington Palace and the Circle Line so it likely to be much sought after.
