A TWO-BEDROOM home is being sold for just £5,000 – but there's a catch.
The Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent home appears to have been used as a base for ceramic-mould making, which might explain why its rooms are filled with industrial clutter and not cosy furniture.
Renovating the property will be no mean feat for those who choose to take it on, as the listing describes it as "an excellent investment".
The house is being auctioned online in May, with bids starting at £5,000.
Many rooms in the house are covered with discarded moulds, ware trucks, buckets and other tools as reported by StokeonTrent Live.
The bathroom is littered with rubble, the sink and the bathtub filled with various industrial equipment and rubbish.

Most of the walls in the property appear to have patches of damp, peeling wallpaper, or entire chunks of plaster missing.
The listing describes the home as in need of "cosmetic improvement", and displays only pictures of the semi-detached house from the outside.
But while in need of work, the freehold home does include two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a paved garden.
Described by Royal Estates, Birmingham-based estate agents as a "rarity", the house also includes a parking space.

A nearby park and local fishing pond offer more appeal for a potential family to move in, although it might be a while before it's tot-friendly.
Prospective buyers are asked not to make a viewing appointment, but to attend an open day at the site.
Bidding for the house will take place via underthehammer.com at midday on May 24 with a guide price of only £5,000, and finish two days later.
Zoopla shows that the house was last sold on February 18 for £55,000, but was oddly listed again the same day for just £9,000. On April 13 the price was reduced by £4,000 to just £5,000.
