This bargain three-bed end terrace could be yours for just £35,000 – but it’s in desperate need of some TLC.

The home, on Windermere Terrace in Stanley, County Durham, is on the market for less than a fifth of the average selling price in the North East.

In need of a full renovation, it could make the perfect investment or project for someone looking to take on the challenge.

Pictures from inside show rooms with carpets stripped back and floorboards on show, and exposed brick where plasterboard has been torn down.

Outside the large front garden will need cutting back with long grass and weeds running rampant.

A Rightmove listing says it was the potential to be a “spacious family home”, and reveals a cash buyer would be needed due to the work required.

Downstairs the new owner will find an open plan kitchen and a lounge, while three bedrooms can be found on the first floor.
