A property that has recently been listed for sale has been dubbed ‘Britain’s most disgusting home’ after pictures emerged of it covered in mould and filled with rubbish.

The exterior of number the home in Camperdown Street in Plymouth, Devon, is covered in ivy that has been left to grow out of control, wrapping itself along with windows and the roof as well.

The interior paints an even more dramatic picture, with a layer of rubbish, old letters and newspapers littering the floor, while the entrance is cluttered with trash and bits of furniture, Plymouth Live reports.

The home was acquired by a property company after the owner sold up, leaving them to clear up the mess.

It is presumed that it had originally been a family home owned by an elderly couple and their son.

It appears that both parents passed away and the son, who was left the house, was unable to cope with its upkeep.

A newspaper amongst the debris on the floor inside one of the bedrooms is dated back to December 2008, which indicates that the house has been falling into disarray for many years.

The hallway leads to a situation of even more chaos, a kitchen in which the floor is completely covered with carrier bags, milk cartons and old food packaging.

The benches, kitchen sink, stovetop and dishwasher are indistinguishable from each other due to the rubbish covering each surface.

One of the walls is warped, discoloured and covered in mould.

A sea of milk cartons leads to the toilet at the back of the property, which is filthy and surrounded by empty bleach bottles.

A bedroom is photographed full to the brim of miscellaneous items, with an easy route through the space seemingly not possible.

The final room photographed, the master bedroom, is by far the tidiest room in the house.

Aside from a large mess of items on top of the bed, the room appears to have been kept almost exactly like the owners would have left it.

The rug is visibly mouldy and the curtain torn in half, while everything is coated in a thick layer of dust.

Earrings have been left on the table, a ladies cardigan is still hung on the back of the door and a man's wallet is on one of the bedside tables.

The three-bedroom semi-detached property is listed with Auction House Devon and Cornwall, with the property due to be cleared by contractors before it goes to auction on November 18.

The company contracted to complete the clearance estimates it will take six men an entire week to get it to a state where it can be viewed by prospective buyers.
