Would you pay an extra £30k to not do up house?

We have been told that we should be able to get £270k for our house by estate agents but there is another house close by built at the same time with exact same plans for which they're asking £240k
The other place supposedly isn't in great condition, while we've done ours up (New kitchen, bathroom, wood floors, New boiler, guttering etc). We also have a driveway and parking while the other place doesn't.

Writing it out makes it sound a bit better but would anyone pay an extra thirty thousand for the same structure, just done up nicer?

I'm curious because I don't know how much the agents might exaggerate to get our business. Or am I too cynical?

I'd expect to pay more than 30k less for a house that didn't have those things, iyswim

New kitchen, new bathroom, new boiler, new floors, new gutters.

How much would that cost to actually DO?

In the area that I live, I'd pay 10k for the driveway.
