Workers have begun the major job of cleaning up a former hoarders’ house in McLachlan Street following its sale in August.
Cars and caravans have been removed from the property while vegetation that choked the front and backyards is also being cleared.
It is unclear whether work has begun on removing the extensive amount of boxes of papers and other items that made the inside of the house inaccessible.
The property was originally to be put up for public auction on August 18 and attracted significant interest.
However, the public auction was replaced by a silent auction where interested parties were invited to submit a bid in writing.
The property sold in August but the sale price has not been made public.
Before the sale real estate agents estimated the house would fetch between $150,000-$200,000.
This week property website Domain estimated with ‘high confidence’ the value was about $335,000.
