It's a bargain befitting of Dion Dublin's eye on Homes Under The Hammer with the potential to turn around a tidy profit with some care and attention.

The semi-detached building is listed for sale at auction next month but any bidders will have to not be put off by the collapsed ceilings, ripped up floors and rubbish strewn across the rooms, the Daily Record reports.

Auction House Scotland, which is advertising the property, describes the listing as "a unique opportunity for a builder/developer looking to return this building to its former glory".

With just the flick of a coin, the home could belong to whoever is daring enough to take on this ambitious project, which also has a garage for off-road parking.

The lot will be auctioned off on Thursday October 5, so time to get saving.
