The two-bedroomed Victorian home in Bristol has been put on the market for £130,000 after it was being raided by police following a tip-off.

But images, apparently showing drug-making equipment were not removed from the property before estate agent Besley Hill took promotional pictures of the house.

Images of the room appear to show it fitted with plant pots, ventilation pipes, fans, cabling and soil on the floor.

The pictures were removed by Besley Hill after the images were spotted by a house hunter who posted it on social media sites Twitter and Facebook.

Cory Kattenhorn tweeted: “Things to find on @Rightmove a cannabis farm…”

While Rich Payne posted a link to the house and wrote: “There appears to be a cannabis farm for sale on Rightmove.”

Avon and Somerset police said they had attended the house in July after reports of a cannabis factory.

After arriving at the house the equipment was dismantled but no arrests were made.

A spokesman said: “When officers attend the site of a cannabis factory they take away the plants and any equipment that is needed for evidence.

“If anything remains in the property that could be used for further illegal drugs cultivation it is damaged beyond repair.”

The terraced house in Easton was described as “being in need of refurbishment” on the property website.

It says the property was a large entrance hall, lounge, an open-plan kitchen and citing room along with two bedrooms and a first-floor bathroom.

A resident who lives on the same road as the property, but not wish to be named, said she ????? a woman at the property around four weeks ago.

She said: “As soon as she moved in, net curtains were put up on all the windows.

“There used to be a funny smell in my kitchen and I could not work out what it was. Then one morning I got a call and was told the police were outside the house.”

When shown a picture of the cannabis factory on Rightmove she said: “You are joking. What were they thinking?”

Manager of Besley Hill’s Easton branch declined to comment when approached today.
