Three bed house with garden bargain priced at £30,000 on the market

A THREE bedroom house with a garden has gone on the market at a bargain price of £30,000 – but buyers must be living on one of the UK’s most dangerous estates.

The terraced house on Princes Crescent in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, sits next to several houses that were boarded up after an arson attack.

Frustrated locals have already spoken out that the estate is run by drug lords and gang members as young as nine.

Many of the houses on the street were said to have been set on fire by thugs in retaliation for owners and tenants who allegedly “grasped” them.

Unlike many of the other houses on the street, the property’s windows appear intact and aren’t boarded up.

Interior images show a large open plan area measuring 22ft x 16ft that once featured a living room and kitchen area.

A small bathroom consisting of a toilet only is located just off the main living area.

Upstairs are three empty bedrooms that have been gutted down to the wooden floorboards.

A small front and back garden provide space for potential buyers to enjoy the summer weather.

The property was originally listed as a rental property but has now been taken over by auctioneers, the auction agent, who have listed the house at a guide price of £30,000-40,000.

They said: “A medium sized townhouse with three bedrooms, an open plan living area and a bathroom.

“The property is well located for access to the A1 and M18, with a good range of shops nearby.”

Pictures of Princes Crescent show houses that have been boarded up and fallen brick walls with several properties left with charred wooden planks in the windows.

Earlier this month, locals revealed how unsafe they felt in the area, saying “kids are terrorizing the place”.

Social media users were quick to comment on the property after spotting it online.

One said: “Edlington just gets overrun with crime and people will smash cars or set them on fire just because they can.”

Another wrote: “Gosh the street looks like it was bombed.”

A third added: “Situated in leafy Edlington, this is a chance to add your own style to this substantial refurbishment property.”

A fourth commented: “Bathroom might need a little refresh but with lots of original features.”

While another person added, “Nothing says a cozy home quite like an industrial steel shutter.”

Doncaster has reportedly had a crime rate 50% higher than the national average.
