Mystery house in Cornwall sits empty for more than 20 years

A house in Boscaswell village, Cornwall will go under the hammer next month after sitting empty for more than twenty years.

The home has been left completely untouched, still full of the owners belongings including books and clothes.

Neighbours have told ITV News they believe the owner left the property suddenly, not long after his wife passed away.

It took heir hunters to track down the current owners. It will now be auctioned, with a starting price of between £50-75,000. Residents nearby say they hope someone local will buy it and turn it back into a home.
