A dilapidated house in the middle of nowhere has been put on the market for $1.6 million – despite needing a complete renovation inside and out.
The four-bedroom property in Hayden Lake, Idaho features duct-taped doors, plywood ceilings and torn floors.
The 1,848-square-foot building also features two bathrooms, brown carpeting throughout, and worn linoleum and kitchen terraces.
Meanwhile, the exterior is clad in clapboard siding that appears to have once been white, a faded red metal roof, and a wraparound porch with a wooden plank leaning against it.
But the sprawling house includes ten acres of land with mountain views and two wells scattered across the countryside, but only one still works.

The property, built in 1913, listed on Zillow focuses on views, saying, “Gorgeous mountain and forest views from this beautiful 10-acre lot. Very quiet area of Lake Hayden. The property has 2 drilled wells. Only 1 is in use.’
Aerial footage shows the house on a large square slab of browning grass, with a handful of towering pines towering skyward.
The yard also appears to have at least one tub – possibly two – spare truck parts and a number of loose cinder blocks.
A long, narrow stretch of roof looks like it needs replacing as a strip of metal roofing is folded up along a hole. Another notable feature includes the large television satellite bolted to a wall on the first floor.

Inside the house there are also items usually found in the garden, including folding garden chairs, a tree stump for a coffee table and what appears to be a wasps’ nest and a snakeskin hanging on the wall.
There’s pine paneling here, peeling wallpaper there, and a room half-covered in a splash of pink paint.
Meanwhile, one of the doors is covered with several strips of tape and the message “Caution, do not open! scribbled on it. The home was listed on June 4 for $1.6 million.
