Neighbours happy to see this ugly eyesore property auction for sale in Stoke

An ‘eyesore’ property is set to be auctioned off in the hope it will be redeveloped.

The semi-detached corner house in Turnhurst Road, Packmoor, Stoke-on-Trent

UK is to up for auction later this month, with a guide price of £30,000.

The two-bedroom former home and shop has a garden to its rear and is desperate need of serious renovation. It sits on the corner of Scragg Street.

It’s close to two schools as well as Kidsgrove and Tunstall town centres.

Families in the area have expressed delight at the thought of something being done with the old green home.

Sonia Oxford has lived in the area for many years, the 77-year-old trustee of St Marks school in Tunstall said: “It’s been up before but nothing has happened.

“I think it would be difficult to have more than one house there because of the road and the access to it. But it used to be a little shop and she [the shopkeeper] lived on the premises.

“I’d like it to be a house again and it doesn’t matter who lives there as long as they are law abiding. It could be nice for a family with children as there’s a school up the road and a school down the road.

“But if it was a little shop again that you could pop into for some bread that would be alright too.”

Dog walker David Potts often passes the old green structure on his walks. The consultant engineer, aged 44, said: “We’ve lived here 16 years now and it’s always been empty. The roof did start to cave in and someone came and repaired it almost immediately.

“So it’s a really good thing [it’s being auctioned off]. Whether it becomes somebody living there I don’t know. But it was a shop. We’ve already got the One Stop so we’re not crying out for another shop.

“But to see it used and not just left to rot  is a good thing.”

The question is what would you do with this property?
