Wales Online logo Wales Online 2 days ago Joanne Ridout

From a charming country mini barn in west Wales to a spacious three-bed semi valleys home, there are still interesting properties on the market within the lower price range.

Some need gutting, some need redesigning and some need a decor update, but all are potential property packages that offer opportunity at maybe the right price.

Some are going to auction so it's hard to predict which will fly past the guide price estimated on them but all offer the opportunity to renovate and add value.

If you're thinking of sinking your teeth into a renovation project after buying an auction property in the south Wales valleys, you are probably scouring the market for a tired terrace looking for an update.

But some times there's a little, unusual gem hiding within the auction catalogue that offers a totally different type of renovation that will produce anything but a standard home.

This particular auction lot is one such gem, offering a cute chapel with the bonus of a garden.

Mount Zion Methodist Church in Fleur de Lys, near Blackwood, has only recently been closed to worshippers, so is in a decent condition inside.

Outside it's a pretty building with a peaceful garden and oodles of potential.

The church is being sold online by Paul Fosh Auctions, call 01633 254044 or visit their website for further details.

This terrace in this Carmarthenshire town is well located for a stroll into town but there will be no time for that for a while for the new buyer of this property.

It has space on offer in buckets but also a roof that needs fixing, damp that needs sorting and a complete overhaul inside.

But once done this property will reward you with a large living room, kitchen diner with door out into a garden, a bathroom downstairs and two large bedrooms upstairs.

And how handy when it comes to doing all the stylish finishing touches that a Home Bargains store is just at the end of the street.

For further information about this home call the Llanelli branch of John Lewis on 01554 773051.

Nestled in the Ceredigion countryside in Cwrtnewydd near Lampeter is this charming stone and slate construction that was once a former agricultural merchant's building.

And if you think it's got character from the outside, wait until you see the inside.

The barn might be in its raw and natural state but that means the incredible roof structure's exposed beams can be admired fully, without distraction.

Even the original pulley wheel is still in place and is the character icing on this yummy property renovation cake.

If you have the ingredients of budget, time, patience and skills and are willing to apply for the planning it needs to become a gorgeous residential home, then maybe this cute little barn is your next project.

Call the Lampeter branch of Morgan & Davies on 01570 423623 to find out more.

It's rather rare to currently find a substantial three bed semi-detached home in south Wales for sale for under £50,000 so it's likely to end up selling at the auction for more than this guide price.

But even then it might be a potential bargain depending on its future; rental or residential?

The bathroom is currently on the ground floor, explaining how three good sized bedrooms can be found upstairs.

This Merthyr Tydfil house is being sold online by Paul Fosh Auctions. Call 01633 254044 or visit their website for further details.

In the centre of this Torfaen valley town is this pretty looking semi-detached two bedroom that instantly invites you in through its striking blue door.

What might initially strike you as you tour the property is that there is some remedial and makeover work to be done here but that there's also potential to create a lovely home or popular rental property.

There's a substantial lounge that is semi open-plan to the kitchen via a wide open doorway and beyond this is a shower room.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms which may benefit from a 'jack and jill' shower room squeezed between them with access provided from both rooms.

That's if the budget allows and the new owner has the inclination to fiddle with the plumbing.

This pretty stone-faced property is on the market with Hammer Price Homes Ld, check out their website for further details.

This terrace property is a very handy abode as a base if the new owner works or likes to shop in Newport city centre, as a quick walk over the George Street bridge and you have arrived at your destination.

The property already has an open-plan living area, kitchen and shower room on the ground floor and can offer three bedrooms upstairs and a garden.

The property needs updating throughout and is sold with vacant possession.

According to the auction house selling this house, if the property were to become a rental then depending on the standard of the refurbishment the property is likely to achieve between £550 - £600 per calendar month if let.

To find out more about this property call Paul Fosh Auctions on 01633 254044 or visit their website for further details.

Near the shops of Neath town centre and the transport links to the wider area, this two bed terrace is a tidy home that needs a refresh.

Still boasting some period features that a new owner will either love or loathe, the house also already has an open-plan reception space so no need to get the sledgehammer out for this space at least.

There's double glazing, three reception rooms, two bedrooms and shower room upstairs plus the bonus of a back garden and no on-going chain.

For more information contact the estate agent Payton Jewell Caines on 01639 891268.

You could own a slice of local history plus create a spacious home full of character in the centre of this pretty market town in Powys.

The three-storey end of terrace is a substantial slice of one of the town's former mills, known as The Great Oak Street Factory.

According to the estate agent selling the Grade II listed house, it was built in approximately 1840 by Thomas Evans of Maenol, who is said to have manufactured high class flannel at the site.

In 1964 it became part of the newly formed Welsh Flannel & Tweed Company. In later years it has been part of The United Services Club and in recent years has remained empty.

Now this house that occupies the end section of the mill is for sale with approved planning in place to renovate and modernise this wing into a two-bed residence.

This end of terrace on one of the main streets in the valleys town is just around the corner from the centre and will not leave you feeling blue because it has a good deal of potential.

Inside it is spacious and at first glance looks in good decorative order, although obviously a full survey will highlight any challenges a new buyer might encounter once they pick up the keys.

The lounge spans the width of the property and is semi open-plan to a sizable kitchen and upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom, again being decent sized spaces.

But it's outside where this painted property really pushes its potential, with a variety of options for the empty space next to the house that comes with the sale.

It might not be profitable for a developer to extend the house, the sums need to add up, but with planning consent there may be the opportunity to build a completely new house in the side garden.

Then you can either sell or rent both or live in one and choose who your new neighbour is going to be.

Call Apex Estate Agents at their Aberdare branch on 01685 883163 to find out more.

Denbigh: £70,000

an old brick building: End of terrace full of character and potential © Williams Estates, Denbigh / rightmove End of terrace full of character and potential a room with a tiled floor: Three storeys of renovations to do at this sizable property © Williams Estates, Denbigh / rightmove Three storeys of renovations to do at this sizable property

This charming red brick end of terrace looks potentially like a perfect renovation, with value to be added and character to be enjoyed as a first time buyer purchase or a developer's project.

This Denbighshire house has a standard terrace layout with a good size lounge at the front, middle room that is currently a kitchen and a vestibule and bathroom at the rear.

If a buyer is looking to 'flip' the property to make a profit or rent the house out then a basic refurbishment, including any structural issues such as damp, is arguably the best option.

But if the house is to be a home for the buyer maybe taking out the dividing wall between the kitchen and lounge and adding a set of French doors out into the garden would both be suggestions to consider to create a light and bright modern home.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a storage cupboard that could be converted into a handy toilet and sink ensuite to both bedrooms.

This might need an extra budget allocated to new plumbing but at least it would stop the need to stagger down the stairs to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

The characterful terrace is for sale with Williams Estates, Denbigh call them on 01745 817417 to find out more.
