Five-bed home that left house hunters feeling 'ill' because of bizarre number of plug sockets sells for cut-price £ 1.25m

A FIVE-BEDROOM home that left house hunters feeling "ill" because of the bizarre number of plug sockets has sold for the cut-price £ 1.25million.

The detached house in Pinner, North West London, went viral after baffling would-be buyers with the huge number of power points and downlighters.

But the property is now under contract-expected to sell to a local businesswoman for £ 1.25million despite the £ 1.3mmillion asking price.

And the scores of plugs dotted around the house won't be a problem, with many of them removed before the sale went ahead.

Joe Prosser, Andrew Pearce Estate Agents and Surveyors, told the Sun Online the owner had rectified the number of sockets in the home.

He said: "It was a very unusual property to deal with due to the sheer amount of sockets and lights."

But he said that the number of downlights hadn't been a disadvantage for the buyer.

It is understood the property was built by an "overzealous" builder who was passionate about his TV and music.

It comes after the seller, Devang Gandhi, told The Sun Online he hadn't expected such an interest in the property after it was listed.

He said: "The sockets are very handy because you don't have to pull the cables.

"Wherever you want to stick in the plug, you can stick it in for the TV, DVDs, stereos.

'OVERZEALOUS BUILDER'

The strange abundance of outlets came to light when Twitter user Toby Davies shared the Rightmove link to the property sold by estate agents Andrew Pearce-sarcastically adding: "Thinking about buying this house, but I'm not sure it has enough plug sockets."

On Rightmove, the property is described as a: "Family haven located in a family-friendly location.

"The accommodation briefly includes of a bright and spacious entrance hallway with doors leading to all rooms.

"The dining room enjoys a bay window adding a natural flow of light into the property."

The kitchen, dubbed "stunning," includes "a range of eye and base level units including integrated appliances, a breakfast bar" and lots of natural light.

With no mention of the ridiculous amount of plug sockets and downlighters, Twitter users took it into their own hands to figure out why the house was filled with outlets.

One user wrote: "Were they running the CIA from the front room?"

Another witty user quipped: "Was this an electrician's training centre at one point?"

Others wondered about the price of the owners' electricity bill.
