An eerie inner-city Victorian ghost house draped with cobwebs and littered with dusty ropes, mugs, bottles and racks of clothes could sell for $3million.
Dating back to 1870, the two-bedroom cottage on Grosvenor Street in Summer Hill in Sydney's inner west was home to a man called Jim and his Scottish terriers for about 40 years until he died at 82 in March.
Each room in the house, which is up for auction at 2pm this Saturday, is strewn with long-forgotten crockery, books, newspapers, Victorian-style light fittings and men's and women's clothes and hats, and is coated in vintage wallpaper.

The kitchen is littered with old glasses, saucepans, bottles, glasses and potted plants
Old lamps and bottles are strewn around the Victorian-era home, all of which will belong to the new owner when it's sold
The front and backyards are a tangle of trees, vines, waist-high grass, terracotta pots and bricks shrouding the pink weatherboards.
Walking into the attic involves balancing on roof beams to avoid falling through the floor.
Despite its dilapidated state, Ray White real estate agent Erik Polsek told Daily Mail Australia he's never had so much interest in a property.
