“Buyers are kindly asked to research the history of this property or inquire with the marketing agent prior to viewings.”
It’s not a phrase you’d usually see on the details for a property for sale listing – but this was no ordinary home being sold.
This was the former home of Fraserburgh’s most notorious son, where three men lost their lives, and their bodies dismembered and disposed of.
His deeds were only discovered when the bones clogged the pipe work and a plumber was called in.
The attic flat at 23 Cranley Gardens in the now-trendy Muswell Hill in London was on the market for some time.
This note was in capitals on the selling advert.
And despite its history, it sold for its £300,000 asking price last year.
Previous viewers of the bargain-priced property were reportedly put off when they learned about its grisly past.
