HOMES Under The Hammer star Martin Roberts found himself quite literally climbing up the property ladder in his latest episode – as that was the only way to get in the flat.
The BBC property expert, 57, was given a rickety ladder to climb up in Fareham, Hampshire when viewing a collection of properties up for auction.
Selling in one single lot, the lucky auction winner would get their hands on a fish and chip shop as well as a flat and a storage area.
… The only catch was you had to use a ladder in the courtyard to even get into the home as the door was hoisted several feet off the floor.
“You also got a two-bedroom flat above – but the access to it would be easy if you could leap like a salmon,” he joked.
Spotting the ladder, he added: “That can’t be it, can it? I think it is, you know…”
“There really was only one word to describe getting access to this flat, bizarre. I haven’t got a clue what I’m going to find up here,” Martin then told cameras.
Thankfully it was at least worth the effort, even if the front door’s location wasn’t exactly ideal.
“How amazing, It’s actually a really nice flat. It looks like it hasn’t been lived in for a very long time,” he said.
We wonder why.
Homes Under the Hammer airs weekdays from 10am on BBC One.
