A Suffolk home was transformed after it featured on BBC's Homes Under the Hammer.

Presenter Jacqui Joseph was just outside Woodbridge to take a look at the property up for sale in Parham, East Suffolk. 

The property was listed for a guide price of £150,000.

Joseph commended the large open space and understairs storage of the property but noted that the widespread mould and damage was a problem. She also pointed out that the electrics and kitchen would need complete redoing. 

However, exiting through the back door, the presenter was impressed by the large garden space and brick outhouse.

She noted that there was plenty of space to extend the house, to create a "bright, modern open plan kitchen".

Joseph also noted the Parham area was a very attractive location with it's quaint parish church, village hall and little river running through it.

Suffolk Coastal Estate Agents' Tim Day described the properties investment prospect as a "gut job" but proposed that after a full renovation the building could be sold at more than £235,000.

He also said stated that the house could be rented out for £685 per calendar month.

The property was bought in March last year for £150,000 by Dave, a retired construction worker and first time property investor from Essex.

He described the property as a "blank canvas" explaining that his partner talked him into buying the property as he was looking for a new project. 

Dave set himself a budget of £30,000 and a timeline of 3 months.

Six months later Dave and a friend John had nearly completed their work. They were able to completely rewire the property, repaint and refresh the bedrooms and fix the roof. The garden was also transformed into a well-groomed modern space.

Dave eventually spent around £50,000 on the renovation, making his total investment around £200,000. He was quoted up to £325,000 for resale of the property.
