FOR many people, the idea of being able to own a house in Brighton and Hove is a faraway dream.

High rents which make it difficult to save and hefty price tags mean the prospect of owning even a small one-bedroom flat in the city is out of reach for many first-time buyers.

With a guide price of £180,000, this three-bedroom house is currently the cheapest Brighton property listed on Rightmove which is not a boat, a houseboat or a flat.

Situated off Upper Hollingdean Road in Davey Drive, the property will go on sale at an online auction on Tuesday.

The terraced house has front and rear gardens and a reception room, a kitchen and dining area on the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and one bathroom.

However the agent states that the home “requires modernisation” and photos show that all rooms in the house certainly need a lot of TLC.

The Argus:

But the property also looks bright and spacious, and in the right hands it could be transformed.

It is £70,000 cheaper than the next property listed on the site which is not for retirement – a three-bedroom house in Lower Bevendean Avenue, which is further from the city centre.

And the next three-bedroom terraced house listed in the same BN1 postcode will cost £100,000 more, at £280,000.
