It's near the Metro, beach, an outstanding school and the town centre - but it could do with an update inside
If you fancy your chances at grabbing a potential bargain, this South Shields flat is going under the hammer this month.
The first-floor, two-bedroom property is in Selbourne Street. The location is handy for the Metro, with the town’s main station just 15 minutes walk away.
Picturesque Bents Exhibition Park and Marine Park are just a short stroll towards the coast, and the beach can be reached in around 10 minutes by foot.
The ‘Outstanding’ rated Marine Park Primary School is just six minutes walk away too.
The property is going on auction at Kingston Park Rugby Ground on Tuesday, November 28. Offers of over £30,000 are welcomed.
Inside, there’s a bit of work to do, although the kitchen appears to be recently renovated. It has a double-glazed window, gas central heating radiator, sink unit with mixer tap, it's plumbed for washer, electric and gas cooker point, there's fitted wall and base units and roll top work surfaces.
Elsewhere in the property it looks like new carpets and paint are a must.
The flat has an entrance hallway, lounge, dining area, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. To the back, there is a shared rear yard. The flat benefits from double glazing throughout, and there is gas central heating.
If you’re a landlord looking for a buy-to-let an investment and you want to know what income you can expect, a two-bedroom part-furnished flat in nearby Wharton Street is being advertised on Zoopla to rent for £400pcm.
