A HIDDEN home has sold for £100,000 over its asking price – even though to-be buyers would have struggled to find it.

The house had been left empty for years, seeing nature take its course and undergrowth take over.


And nature took over so much the house was seemingly hidden and near impossible to spot from the street.

The four-storey Kent property, which is known locally as the Cuckoo's Nest, had an asking price of £220-240,000 when it hit the market.

But the home has now been snapped up for more than £100,000 more than that.

It sold for £351,250 at auction.

The home is in Margate, a town which has just knocked Ibiza off its pole position as the global party capital and socialite hotspot.

Meanwhile, another home that was covered by a jungle recently sold for double its price estimate.

Plus, the three-bedroom Wales property was one of the cheapest on the market when it was listed for £32,000.
