This house has a terrible past.
Domain reported a story recently about 2 bed room terrace house in Surrey hills in Sydney.
The owners deceased body had been in there for 8 years – without anyone noticing she was dead.
Her neighbours thought the house was abandoned.
Imagine how lonely this poor old lady must have felt before she died with such a small support network that no one even noticed she was gone for 8 years.
It makes you think how isolated we can become from our neighbours in our busy lives.
Frankly, with one of my neighbours the more isolated I can be the better.
But on a serious note, this is a real wakeup call to us all – ‘don’t be a stranger’.
Reach out to people in your community. It can make a real difference.
Anyway, the home is for sale now and whoever buys it has their work cut out for them.
Because as this picture shows it’s in a state of disrepair.
Offers are expected around the $1 million mark, and there’s been a lot of interest – although some people have of course been put off by the sad past.
