Sydney hoarder house sells for $3 million

A hoarder house strewn with so much rubbish that it cost $30,000 just to clear a path to the front door has sold for $3million - $500,000 more than its reserve price.

The three-bedroom Federation house - formerly owned by hoarder Ernest Towell - stands in stark contrast to its neighbours in the affluent Sydney beachside suburb of Bronte.

'Currently not habitable… over 18s to enter at own risk and please wear enclosed shoes only,' an ad for the property read.

Despite the unappealing ad, the Blandford Avenue property was snapped up by Kivan Derak, the managing director of technology firm Texel Global, at auction on Tuesday night, realestate.com.au reports.

Mr Derak, who calls himself a 'one-man-band property developer' told the website that the first thing he would do with the property is 'clean it up!'

He added: 'It's got great views — I'm not sure what the council will let me do, but I'd like to build two nice houses on there.' 

The house set against a hill on a narrow but deep 778 square metre block with stairs leading through a garden to the house - but climbing them isn't the only obstacle.

Real estate agents Belle Property hadn't even included photos of inside the actual house in their ad -
