Frightmove! Househunters are horrified as £125,000 ‘family home’ is advertised with rooms full of junk and clutter

  •  A house up for sale in Newcastle features a number of messy photos on an estate agents’ website
  • The house is filled to the brim with junk and clutter in every room
  • Listed for £125,000, house hunters can’t see how this could be the perfect ‘family home’
  • Twitter users were horrified by the sheer amount of items stacked throughout the property 

House hunters were horrified by a messy house listed on RightMove that was full of junk and clutter. 

The listing for the propery in Shiremoor, Newcastle, on popular search engine says the house is up for £125,000 and is the ideal ‘family home.’

However, there is mess and clutter in almost every room. Some are so full of junk it is impossible to see what they look like.

The description from Pattinson estate agents reads: ‘Pattinsons welcome to the market this semi detached home. Ideally positioned for access to the Cobalt business park and Local Metro station.

House hunters were horrified by the amount of mess found in a RightMove listing for a house in Shiremoor, Newcastle for  £125,000

Covered from clutter from top to bottom: Social media users complain that no one can possibly see the house properly with all of the mess in the way

‘Briefly comprising of entrance hall, lounge diner and kitchen to the ground floor.

‘To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

‘The loft is boarded with a Velux window. Externally there is a rear garden and off street parking to the front via the drive.’

Despite the positive descriptions on the listing, the images show most of the rooms as a complete tip.

What once might have been considered a livable loft space is now crammed with items from top to bottom.

Clutter as far as the eye can see: The loft presents a dimly lit space brimming with junk, clothes, cardboard boxes and old furniture 

The kitchen is well-presented in contrast to the rest of the property, however, house hunters should watch out for the pet bowls in the middle of the floor

The bathroom is crammed with cleaning products and hygiene items which cover all available surfaces. Towels and other articles litter the floor 

In the bedrooms there is hardly any floor space to walk in, with piles of clothes, stuffed boxes and cuddly toys. Items are also falling out of wardrobe shelves where they have been stuffed.

The kitchen, whilst relatively normal compared to the rest of the house, shows countertops with mountains of crockery and kitchenware, along with a vast supply of cat food. 

Also, the bathroom is decked all over with products, both for cleaning the house and the body.  

The living room is covered in the home-owner’s personal things, from portraits of cats to two dolls lounging in the corner, anything you can think of – this room has

It might not give the warm welcoming one might expect from a family-friendly living room with piles of junk in every corner

In the living room, house hunters were met with stacks of items in every corner along with jam-packed shelves. The fire place is covered up by multiple items, making it harder for viewers to envision themselves living in the space.  

One searcher who saw the house online said: ‘Just came across this house on RightMove…. Would you not tidy up a bit before having the photos taken? How is anyone supposed to tell what the rooms are actually like?!’

Someone replied: ‘WHAT?! I mean there’s typical everyday/ lived in mess…but how could you even let the estate agent in the house with it like this??’

The bedrooms are dark with no natural lighting: The closed curtains give the room a smaller feel along with the huge wardrobe next to the bed

The sizable garden shows potential if homeowners are not afraid to get stuck in and give the place a clear-out 

The front of the house is certainly not a reflection of what awaits inside, a trimmed lawn and a concrete driveway invites buyers in 

The original poster replied: ‘Exactly! Like at least throw stuff into boxes and put the boxes in neat piles at a bare minimum?’

And another said: ‘Oh my word… maybe they are renters and don’t want it to be sold!

‘If this is an estate agent I would be shocked! Probably through purple bricks or similar whereby you upload your own photos? Real mess!’

Social media users were quick to comment on the property’s appearance: People were appalled by the sheer amount of clutter in the house and thought the owner should have cleaned beforehand
