The end terrace cottage in Sunderland is a mess but has attracted a lot of interest amongst potential buyers
It's description as an end of terrace cottage makes this house sound almost quaint.
And on first viewing from the outside, it looks alright too. However when you step over the threshold the full reality of the property dawns.
Once you manage to wade through the mound of junk mail it's into the house proper and you're immediately struck - or could have been - by the ceiling, parts of which in some of the rooms have fallen to the floor and are in need of urgent attention.
There's plaster hanging off the wall, dust over the floors, and a lot of debris to step around.
However despite the apparent downsides to the property, it is proving a massive hit with vistors to the online property website Zoopla.
