With the UK’s average house price having increased by £6,000 in the past year, one home in Andover offers a potentially much more cost-effective solution.

A one bedroom flat in Weyhill Road has a guide price almost three times less than the UK average with a guide price of £80,000.

Excluding shared ownership arrangements, it’s the cheapest house on the market, and is close to the train station and within walking distance of the town centre.

Entering the property into an entrance hall with adjoining storage, you can head right into the lounge, which has a large window as well as facilities for a television and telephone.

The lounge also leads onto the fully fitted kitchen, which includes an electric oven, hob, and fridge/freezer, with the plumbing available for a washing machine to be added.

Heading back to the entrance hall, the shower room lies directly opposite the front door, containing a shower, WC and basin. To its left is the door to the bedroom, which can fit a double bed and other furniture with room to spare.

Andover Advertiser:

The house is up for sale by auction, with auctioneer iamsold. It is being sold by the modern method of auction, which means a buyer must sign a reservation agreement and pay a reservation fee of at minimum £6,000, including VAT, as well as £300, including VAT for a Buyer Information Pack. This is in addition to the full purchase price.

The buyer then has 28 days to exchange and 28 days to complete, which allows buyers longer periods to arrange finance. The property is also leasehold, for which lease details “are currently being compiled.”
