Incredible 11-bedroom mansion ‘frozen in time’ on sale for just £150,000 – but there’s a massive catch

THIS huge 11-bedroom mansion could be yours for just £150,000 ($179,500) – but there’s a reason why it’s so cheap.

The period family home covers just over 5,500 sq ft and sits in five acres of land in Waterville, New York state.



While the property certainly has space to spare, the décor inside is “frozen in time” and any buyer will need money and time to fix it up.

A listing on real estate website Zillow states: “This Home is waiting for a buyer to provide the needed TLC to renovate this historic Waterville landmark.”

The house was built around 1832 and has been updated since, but needs plenty of work to bring it into the modern age.

The dining room, complete with chandelier, looks like it is out of a bygone age and the wallpaper, which is falling off, needs some serious attention.

Similarly, in what appears to be a study, the wallpaper is also coming away and holes in the wall are exposing the electrics.

On the plus side, there are some beautiful period features including “elegant stairways, fireplaces, doorways and moldings”.

There won’t be any queuing for the bathroom in the morning as while there might be 11 bedrooms there’s also seven bathrooms.

Also included in the property is enough garage space for two cars.

Any buyer though would probably be getting a bargain.

A property in the same town with just four bedrooms and two bathrooms was recently listed for $212,600.
