Inside spooky house abandoned for 40 years with all its contents still there
8th October 2020

A terraced house abandoned for 40 years has been put up for auctions for just £17,000, with all the original homeowner's items still inside.

The boarded-up property, located in the Blaenrhondda village in the south Wales valley of Rhondda Fawr, is completely stuck in time.

Footage taken by property auctioneer Paul Fosh reveals the eerie two to three-bed property and its decades-old design.

As he enters the house there is a corridor decorated in multi-coloured tiles that leads to a flight of stairs to bedrooms on the first floor.

The living room will need some touch-up on the green and white floral wallpaper and the ceiling, but a fireplace remains intact on the wall.

Furniture like red sofas and wooden cabinets add colours to the room.

Most of the renovation work needed appears to be involve the ceilings and walls. But buyers can keep other original features such as the autumn leaves patterned stair runner and the frosted glass panel in the hallway.

The kitchen seems to have survived a ceiling collapse incident with much of the painting and cement falling off but prospective buyers could probably salvage the pastel yellow and green cupboard in the middle of the room.

Throughout the house there are signs of the property taking a battering from nature over the years.

Signs of damp and crumbling plaster suggests the property is in need of a full renovation, from the roof and guttering at the top to a cure for damp at the bottom.

However once done, this could prove a very homely abode.

The property also comes with a garden, which is currently overgrown with weeds but once tamed, it will be a pretty place to relax.

The house boasts a calming valley view, overlooking the mountain top opposite.

Sean Roper, who is handling the sale for Paul Fosh Auctions said: "Going into the house is like stepping back in time.

He detailed: "It's as if the previous owners just closed the front door and left with everything almost as they had left it 40 years ago. The decor and groovy wallpaper harks back to the sixties and seventies.

"But it can't just be opened up and moved into by new owners as there is a fair bit of work that needs to be done to bring it up to modern standards.

He added that the property could offer an opportunity for buyers with imagination.

"The village of Blaenrhondda is situated north of Treherbert and Treorchy and is in a semi rural location surrounded by attractive countryside and wonderful views over nearby mountains," Sean said.

The next Paul Fosh Auctions online sale when this and a further 82 lots will be offered starts at 12 noon on Tuesday, October 20 with lots going under the hammer from 5pm on Thursday, October 22.
