Ok so this is clearly a 'opportunity' house but just how bad are the main living rooms? grin There's a photo of the bay window, the hall and stairs, v unattractive bathroom. Then there's the road outside, from a bad angle, the cycle path.....oh yes ad the back yard from a most unattractive angle too! Don't get me started on the loft room shot.......

Why is there a photo of the road sign???grin

Yeh - pretty bad! could be a bargain for someone? Believe it or not I have seen worse.............

The agent clearly thinks being next to the cycle lane will be a selling point I guess. No other reason for the sign pic

It's bad but also lovely! I actually want to be the fixer up of it! Wonder how bad the kitchen is and whether it was impossible to find a bizarre angle in there?

Possibly has someone lined up to buy it already and is just going through the motions hoping not to attract any other potential buyers?

I don't have a clue about the area but looks like an executor's sale and an ideal opportunity for a developer to me?

The photos remind me of when I gave my camera to DD, aged 4.

I think it's too expensive anyway. I DO know the area and it's ok but 295 is too much for a house in that state. The one a few doors up sold for much less last year in a better state and house prices in York are pretty steady. It won't really be 4 beds either. All the others I've seen on that street have one loft room rather than two small ones. Link here for last years house.

They are amusing but I can see why they've put those in, it's all original features and location, no idea about price as I don't know much about York.

Those have to win an award for most random estate agent photos ever.

They do seem like pictures taken to not sell the property. Last year's is lovely and does illustrate what it could be.

I live near here and saw a man having a poo on the cycle track so believe me it doesn't help sell a house!!

I can only think the place has tenants or nobody has told granny that the kids want to sell the house and pop her in a retirement home. Bizarre choice of pictures.....
