Barrow island property

Historic home on Barrow Island

This will be an exciting opportunity to own possibly the cheapest historic property in England in an area undergoing large renovation

Estate agent GetAnOffer is bringing an historic property to market for just a £1 minimum bid. Bids will be invited for the two-bedroom 3rd floor apartment from 22nd March 2021.

This will be an exciting opportunity to own possibly the cheapest historic property in England in an area undergoing large renovation and close to the UK nuclear submarine production shipyard owned by BAE.
Situated in Barrow-in-Furness the flat forms part of a large late Victorian tenement, a certain amount of renovation is required both inside and out.

Tom Cranenburgh, partner of GetAnOffer said “It’s a great chance for someone to get on the property ladder. We expect interest from buy to let investors as its close to BAE, 9,500 people work at the historic dockyard owned by BAE but I’d love to see it sell to owner-occupiers, just starting out.”

So, why ask just £1 for a property?

Tom explains “The flat needs redecorating internally and externally, the block is undergoing a program of renovation like the rest of the local area to get it back to its former glory as it was left pretty unloved until recently. A new management team are doing a great job to get it back up to scratch.”

“With the average house price in England reaching new highs of £256,000 this could be a chance to buy a property for fraction of that price. There’s only one downside – I don’t think its possible to get a £1 mortgage!” laughs Tom.

The property comprises;
Two bedrooms
Kitchen Bathroom/WC
