Fire Damaged Cottage Not for the Faint Hearted


Are you looking to get your teeth into a  house renovation challenge?

Well, this might be just what you need. And  they don’t come much more challenging than this fire-damaged property in the pleasant Maindee district of Newport.

The two bedroom detached house, at 8 Victoria Avenue, could make a lovely home once renovated but, as the pictures clearly show, new owners will have to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in to achieve their dream.

Gemma Vaughan, of Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions who are selling the property, says the cottage with a guide price of just £50,000 is ‘sold as seen’.

Gemma said:

“The property, which is creating quite a bit of interest, requires full renovation.  It’s fire damaged but once it’s been refurbished would make a lovely home or a buy to let property.

“Properties in good order in this part of Newport, just a mile from the centre of the city and a short drive to the M4, can  achieve in the region of £800-£900 per month rental.

“The property has two reception rooms kitchen and shower room on the ground floor with two bedrooms above. The garden is overgrown.”

The property will be offered as part of the Paul Fosh Auctions online sale which starts at 12 noon on Tuesday, August 30, ending from 5pm on Thursday, September 1
