Crumbling cottage with health and safety warning for viewings goes on sale for £35,000

By Nisha Mal

The ultimate fixer upper has gone on sale - a run down cottage in such a bad state of repair it comes with a health and safety warning for any viewings.

The 1960s bungalow has a parking space, fireplace and stunning views of beautiful Devon countryside - but has been abandoned for 60 years.

Nestled in 0.26 acres it is next to an Iron Age hill fort that has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest since 1981.

But it comes with a catch - the 1960s home is falling parts and is barely anything more than its walls.

The small house in the woods in Hawkechurch, Devon, just below Lambert’s Castle is on for sale for £35,000.

Marketing agents Symonds & Sampson in Axminster has a health and safety warning on the property details stating that ‘the building is in very poor condition and those viewing should not attempt to enter’.

A spokesman said: ''An exciting opportunity to acquire a derelict timber bungalow set just below Lamberts Castle enjoying stunning rural views.

''In grounds of about 0.26 of an acre (0.11 ha). For sale by public auction on Thursday 4th November 2021 at 2pm at The Guildhall, Axminster, Devon, EX13 5NZ.''
