A three-bedroomed house in Oxford that was gutted by fire has gone up for sale for just £50,000. 

The terraced property in Watlington Road, Cowley, was burnt to the ground in February, leaving it boarded up and with no roof. 

But ten months after the blaze, it's now on the market with the bargain price tag and being touted as the 'ultimate fixer upper'.

The house is on the market for just £50,000. (SWNS)

Buyers have been warned that the house needs completely rebuilding, and repair work could run into thousands of pounds. 

The listing on estate agents and auctioneers McHugh and Co also warns potential buyers that they view the house "at their own risk" due to the condition of the building.

The house's previous owner, 77-year-old Martin Patten, was killed in the same fire that destroyed the house, alongside his dog Jolly.

At the time, family friend Lynne Berry embarked on a mission to raise £35,000 to help rebuild the home which is "barely a shell" but cancelled the fundraiser after receiving online abuse.

The house will be auctioned on Thursday, 2 December.
