‘Traumatic Grand Designs’ two-bed removed from Rightmove as it’s branded ‘feral’

Estate agents have pulled a £160,000 property off the market after social media users ridiculed the listing online, likening it to a “traumatic Grand Designs episode”.

Social media users laid into the “two-bedroom” property had bare walls, no first floor, an unfinished roof and plants growing inside, calling it “feral”.

The "house" in Shirehampton, Bristol, was listed on Rightmove by Haart as an “extremely exciting” opportunity for “cash buyers only”.

Pictures of the property showed a building with no first floor, which would usually be supporting the bedrooms, and a gigantic hole in the roof.

Dying plants hung down from the ceiling and the bare unpainted walls and floors presented a less than homely feel to potential buyers.

The listing by estate agent Haart described the property as having "huge potential" and claimed planning permission had already been granted to turn the former coach house, which once housed horses, into a two-bed home.

“The fantastic opportunity not to be around for long,” house hunters are warned on the listing, despite the fact that the “astonishing” property has been on the market for six months already.

While the asking price was lowered to £160,000 in September 2020, estate agents Haart took the listing down after online users mocked the building.

Almost 20,000 people had viewed the images of the former “fire station coach house” leading to scorn from commenters, with one likening the property to a “traumatic Grand Designs episode”.

Another mocked Haart's optimistic Rightmove description, labelling it as “feral”.

They wrote: “This takes the p**s. I wouldn't even go so far as saying it's a house. How the hell is this exciting? It's a barn. Absolutely feral.”

The estate agents removed the listing from Rightmove following the online backlash.

The Daily Star has contacted Haart for comment.
