A terraced house in Nantymoel, which went up for auction with a £0 reserve price, has sold for £19,000.

The three-bedroom Victorian house was described by auctioneers, Paul Fosh Auctions, as 'little more than a shell' with no roof tiles and is currently uninhabitable.

The property went under the hammer last night and finally sold for £19,000.

This house at Nantymoel near Bridgend is a real 'free house', because it's up for sale for £0.00.

The three-bedroom Victorian terraced is described by auctioneers as "little more than a shell", which explains the low reserve price.

The property has a nil reserve, which means it could be sold for just a few pounds when it goes to auction later this month.

Auctioneer Paul Fosh said: "We're told all there is of the house are the walls. The new owner must be well aware that they'll need funds to renovate the place as it's currently unfit for human habitation - it doesn't even have slates on the roof."
