ANYONE GOING to view Hayesleigh, in Yelverton, Devon, should take a torch.

Although electricity is connected to the six-bedroom, three-reception house, not all the rooms have light. It needs a complete blitz, say agents Mansbridge & Balment. High on the list would be a new kitchen, new bathrooms, and a new central-heating system, not to mention complete rewiring. On the plus side, it has been untouched for so long it still has many of its Victorian fittings, such as old door handles and a cast-iron bath with claw feet. It is on the market at pounds 90,000 with final offers due 12 November. It is likely to need around pounds 60,000 spent on it... but then it would match its neighbours, some of which could fetch pounds 200,000. Call 01822 855055.
