There were enormous mounds of rubbish on every surface of the abandoned home, which sold on the market for £110,000.
The house, situated at 2 Camperdown Street in Plymouth, was a fixer-upper perfect for people seeking to relocate to the coast and who didn't mind taking on the challenge.
The home's walls were covered in ivy, which had grown unchecked, and wrapped itself not only around the side of the home but also across the windows and over the roof.
Upon entering the house, the first thing that caught attention was the layer of trash, old letters and newspapers covering the floor. The entranceway was cluttered with a spare door and fragments of furniture, all of which were piled with waste.
A property company bought the house after the previous owner sold it, leaving it in this condition.
The newspaper on the floor of one of the bedrooms was from December 2008, suggesting that this home had deteriorated over many years.
The old wallpaper and the primitive furnishings, preserved in their original condition, gave the building a rustic charm. The photographs on the walls represented the past owners’ lives - though you would be hard-pressed to get up close enough to the wall to inspect them.
The hallway led to an even more chaotic environment: a kitchen where the entire floor was littered with carrier bags, milk cartons, and discarded food packaging.
The rubbish dumped over each surface made the benches, kitchen sink, stovetop and dishwasher appear identical.
One of the walls had a damaged, discoloured, and mouldy surface.
The toilet in the back of the property, which was filthy and ironically surrounded by empty bleach bottles, could only be reached after crossing a sea of milk cartons.
Traces of the past owner were found in the corner, each with boxes of dog food. A Plymouth to Looe railway ticket from 2017 was tucked away inside one of the boxes. The man had left his home, but his remnants were still present.
A bedroom was shot full of various objects, making it appear as if there was no easy way through the room.
The main bedroom, the last chamber photographed, was by far the neatest room in the house. Aside from a colossal clutter of items on top of the bed, it appeared to have been kept almost exactly as it was when the owners departed.
The rug appeared to be mouldy, and the curtain was ripped in half. The room was also covered with a thick layer of dust.
On the floor, earrings had been set aside, a woman's cardigan was found on the back of the door, and a gentleman's wallet was on one of the bedside tables.
The three-bedroom semi on Camperdown Street was available at auction, with the property set to undergo home clearance in Nottingham before it went on sale.
The cleaning estimate was provided by a house clearance company, which estimated it would take six men a whole week before it could be viewed.
There are various reasons people might want to use a house clearance service in the United Kingdom.
