It's the 'worst house on the street' and is described as uninhabitable. But this Brisbane home just sold for a seven-figure sum

An uninhabitable house has sold for more than $1.45million at auction.
The property on Deighton Road in Dutton Park, in Brisbane’s south, was snapped up by a keen buyer when the home went under the hammer on November 10.
A spokeswoman for selling agent, Ray White, told Daily Mail Australia there was a ‘pretty busy auction’ with seven bidders vying for the property at one point.
A reason why the property was so keenly contested at the auction was the massive, 810sqm block that is just 3.4km to the centre of Brisbane or a 10 minute drive.
The property listing described the structure as an opportunity for homeowners to ‘unleash’ their ‘architectural creativity’.
‘The current structure is non-habitable but worry not as plans are being explored for the house to be removed,’ the listing read.
Ray White said properties in Brisbane attract 3.5 bidders on average and said the home would have been attractive for families with Brisbane South State Secondary College Brisbane South State Secondary College nearby.
The home is about half an hour’s walk to the famous Gabba cricket ground.
