This $300K House Near Ottawa Seems Normal But Inside Looks Like A Zombie Apocalypse

With the Canadian housing market being what it is, a two-storey, semi-detached home for $300,000 close to downtown Ottawa sounds like a steal. It's located in a quiet neighbourhood, has a spacious backyard with a garage and paved driveway, and is within walking distance of the Ottawa River.

But the interior of this Gatineau home is another story. The listing advises not to go inside as the house is a "war zone," and it looks as though a band of zombies had attacked and left it in ruins. Whoever or whatever was previously living there left it in quite a state.

The listing makes no mention about how the home ended up in this condition, but browsing photos is sure to have your imagination running wild. The place appears to be covered in mold, including the doors, but the furniture and belongings of the previous residents are also scattered throughout the home. To say it needs to be gutted is an understatement.

If you're a courageous handyman, the bones of this property are quite the find. It's on a spacious lot with no backyard neighbours, on a quiet cul-de-sac beside a golf course. You'd be only a couple of blocks from the Sentier des Voyageurs walking path along the river. It's close to public transit as well as a number of daycare centres.

The house has 12 rooms, including four upstairs bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room, laundry room, basement storage, kitchen as well as a dining room area. The real estate company advises against visiting the interior of the home. The sale is without a legal guarantee of the property, therefore it is at the risk of the buyer.
