Searching for houses in Colchester, like much of the UK, can be quite a tricky task, especially with house prices almost continually on the rise.

You might wonder what the cheapest property is that you can buy in the county, excluding options such as shared ownership or a houseboat.

If you're looking for a property on the lower end of the price scale in the Colchester area, then Zoopla may have an option for you.

A two-bed terraced house on Barrack Street is on sale for £190,000 and has been "professionally refurbished".

Upon entering the property you'll come into the living room space, which is of a decent size, and leads straight through to the kitchen.

The kitchen has been newly fitted with an understairs cupboard and an electric double oven.

Off from the kitchen is a bathroom which has a bath/shower, WC, towel radiator and sink.

Meanwhile, there is an entrance to a small garden area from the kitchen, which is lined with wooden fences and has grass on it.

Heading upstairs you will find the two bedrooms of the property, one of which is a double and the other is a "small double".

Additionally, the home has had a new electric heating system fitted and comes with double-glazed windows.
