An eerie overgrown house that even has vines growing into the bathroom has hit the market for £750,000 with planning permission to demolish it and build two new properties.

The three bedroom home called Overdale in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, South Wales, was owned by the same family for a long time after it was built in 1934, before standing empty for more than 20 years when the son moved away.

About one and a half years ago the property went up for sale and was bought by new owners, according to Estate agents Hills Property Consultants.

At the time of that sale, a vintage MG sports car was hidden in the stand-alone garage.

The house has become very overgrown, with vines seen crawling all over the outside of the property and even through the windows of a bathroom, leading to its eerie character.

Now, the property has hit the market for £750,000 but as a plot of land with planning permission to flatten the home to transform it into two new houses.

Plans include replacing the existing home with a four bed home and open-plan kitchen diner.

A second house would then be built on the large plot with four bedrooms including a master with an ensuite.

Both properties would have front and back gardens and there would be three dedicated car parking spaces for each house.

Work has already begun to cut back the overgrown land and remove the garage and a rickety lean-to.

The planning application was approved by Monmouthshire County Council last month.

Estate agents Hills Property Consultants said: ‘A fantastic chance to acquire two building plots with full planning consent to erect two, detached luxury homes in one of Chepstow’s most prestigious locations.

‘The Historic Town of Chepstow is ever popular and is currently within the top five highest achieving property values in South Wales.’
