The 'highly desirable' house, at 37, Ipswich Road, is empty and in need of a full modernisation programme, say the auctioneers.

The property, being auctioned on July 17, has 1930s fireplaces and a window and door which are boarded up. Some old patterned carpet and wallpaper remain but many rooms have bare floorboards and are lit by single lightbulbs. The kitchen and bathroom look like they haven't been touched for decades.

The gardens outside of a third of an acre are "also in need of attention."
