The bad news?

The decor is straight out of the 1970s era Saturday Night Fever with gaudy carpets, wallpaper, a panel fireplace and even a beauty board in the hall. The BER-F rating means that when home heating bills increase, you’ll either have to spend big on a major retrofit or spend it on fuel bills.

The good news?

The contingent of upscale buyers, who have long sought larger early 20th-century red bricks to go straight to gutting and modernizing, are now facing major problems with recent increases in construction and material costs. Many are therefore turning to larger 1950s-1970s homes like this one, which are much less complicated to renovate and don’t present external insulation issues.

How much should I buy?

The price is €850,000.

And to fix it?

For a top job, count on €250,000.

What will I end up with?

You spend €1.1 million to build a house worth €1.5 million.
