Two bed house with no ROOF goes on the market for £15,000

Is this the ultimate fixer upper? Two bed house with no ROOF goes on the market for £15,000 after it was gutted by fire

  • The Ayrshire house is on sale for a tenth of the average Scotland house price
  • A fire gutted its top floor, destroyed the home’s roof and shattered windows 
  • One homeseeker joked the house was ‘Spacious with room for expansion’
  • The two-bed house is still too dangerous for visitors to go inside  

A two-bedroom home in Ayrshire has gone up for sale for £15,000 – despite having no roof. 

The detached house in the tiny village of Barr in southwest Scotland is too dangerous for prospective buyers to go inside because of the massive damage to its top half.

A fire at the house left the roof caved in and windows on its upper floor smashed, leaving only a few charred rafters behind. 

Debris from the fire is also strewn across the front garden.

This didn’t stop the house going on sale on Rightmove for £15,000 – around a tenth of the average asking price in Scotland.  

Debris from a fire at the house is still piled in the front garden, while most of the roof was destroyed 

Several windows were shattered by the blaze which gutted the upper floor of the two-bedroom home  

Bids for the damaged home start at £13,500, but there is a £15,000 reserve on the property. 

The house offers its own driveway and garage as well as an enclosed courtyard.

Marc, a Rightmove user, posted online about the property saying: ‘A house came up on my Rightmove alerts in my price range, needs a wee bit of work.

‘But looks awright?’

Duncan Blair said the house was: ‘Spacious with room for expansion.’

The house in Barr is being sold by Slater Hogg and Howison and advertised via Rightmove.

The badly-damaged house is on sale for just £15,000 in the small village  of Barr in Ayrshire 

The home’s advertisement says the house is: ‘Well located in the centre of the picturesque conservation village of Barr in Ayrshire.

‘Barr is nestled amidst the Carrick hills beside the converging rivers of Stinchar and Greg.

‘The site contains the remains of a significantly fire damaged two-storey, two-bedroom villa.

‘Externally the garden to the front of the property is paved and chipped, and to the left of the property is a driveway that leads to the attached garage.

‘To the rear of the property is an enclosed court yard and accessed from the garage and the living room of the property.

‘Please note that the property and land are sold as seen and can only be viewed externally for obvious safety reasons.’
