Cheapest house in Oxford dubbed 'ultimate fixer upper' on sale for just £50,000 – but it'll need completely rebuilding

OXFORD’S cheapest house has gone up for sale for just £50k but it will need a bit of work to get it up to scratch. 

The terraced property in Watlington Road, Cowley, has been listed for the modest sum after being burnt to the ground in February.

Ten months after the tragic blaze, potential buyers have now been given the opportunity to take on what has been described as the “ultimate fixer-upper” that would need a complete rebuild.

Repair work alone could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds, buyers have been warned.

The property is by far the cheapest on the market in Oxford but comes with no roof, is currently boarded up and needs a lot of work.

The listing, on Mchugh and Co, warns potential buyers that they view the house "at their own risk" due to the condition of the building.

The terraced house with two floors is located near to the junction with Berry Close, close to local shops and public transport.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom and on the ground floor there is a reception room and a kitchen.

The house also has a front and back garden.

The homeowner, 77-year-old Martin Patten, was killed in the fire alongside his dog Jolly in February.

At the time, family friend Lynne Berry, set out on a mission to raise £35,000 to help rebuild the home which is "barely a shell".

But the fundraiser was cancelled after she received online abuse.

The house will be auctioned on Thursday, December 2.
