A glimpse has been given inside a £68,000 rundown home which is now an Instagram-worthy property of dreams.
Mum Jade Doutch’s home, clad in black, has completely changed since she bought it for £68,000 around 20 years ago in a completely rundown condition.
She bought the 1920s three-bed semi-detached house despite mulling over buying the house next door.

Jade of Anglesey, Wales, opted to purchase it at the age of 22 and spoke to Manchester Evening News about the challenges she faced.
She said: “I was looking for a house that needed a little bit of work. I viewed quite a few houses at the time, but this one was just a bargain really,”
“Funnily enough, I went to view the house next door but I didn’t like it. Then my friend who lived opposite at the time was like ‘what about the one next to it’.
“It had been on the market for over a year and no one was interested in, but it came with a plot of land that had planning permission on it which I didn’t realise.
“So the next day I went to see it, but even before viewing it I just knew I was going to buy it. It was cheaper than the one next door – even with the huge plot of land that came with it.”
As a first-time buyer, Jade who is now 43, managed to snap up the house for a bargain price of £68,000.
