Talk about a room with a view! House in Oxford goes on sale for £500,000 despite the back wall being completely missing

  • House in Oxford without an external wall goes on sale for £500,000
  • Victorian home is missing the rear outside wall 

A semi-detached house put up for sale for £500,000 has the unusual drawback of a missing external wall.

The quaint looking Victoria property with a converted loft is said to boast three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

But the whole of the rear of the three-storey home is lacking an outside wall. 

The rooms are hard to envisage as the pad looks like a building site.

The downstairs is full of bricks, other materials and tools.
