Do you have to leave one wall up to have it considered a renovation instead of a rebuild?

I bet there's at least one body buried under that lawn. Not of a murder victim, just one of the residents that died in the house and they dragged the body out when it started to smell.

Wtf does 'partially detached' mean? Its clearly attached

Do they mean end unit or something?

"Semi-detached"

Not detached enough.  I feel bad for the owner next to it.  Probably a mold and rat and roach wonderland.

//or British mould even, with a "u" which is even worse

Well the inside doesn't look toooooooo bad.
Let me check the inside.

Jesus the photos just get worse as you click through them. That looks like a photo enlarger in there, which looks quite new, plus blackout panels on the window so used as a darkroom.

On the plus side if you buy it and renovate it the neighbours will love you. This has probably be an eyesore for years and if you fix it they'll be as happy as a puppy with two tails. You'll add £10k to the value of their houses overnight.

"Semi detached" means shares one wall with a house next door. "Detached" means no shared walls. "Terrace" means shared walls on both sides. "End terrace" means semi detached, but at the end of a row or terraced houses.

Toss everything out, Rip up the floors and walls to the studs.  Start over.

I saw the enlarger too and went ooo darkroom nice and then realized given the state of the rest of the house that probably means they've been dumping photo chemicals in the back yard for thirty years.

If you search the address there is a limited company registered December 2021 with the director/owner living at this address. Seems odd.

I think it might be an enlarger, like you use in a darkroom, like this one.

Photo enlarger. You put negatives in and photo paper on the base and it prints a photo. The red light on the top of the unit is a safe light, so you can see what you're doing but it won't affect the photo.

/Can't remember the last time I saw an actual negative, but some professionals still use them.

The owners credit their renovation to "a very special blend of psychology and extreme violence."

How much do construction dumpsters cost in Blighty?  It'll only take 5 or 6.

Just two houses with one common side wall and separate land ownership.

Guide prices are set intentionally low to drum up interest. It'll sell for at least twice that.

Build huge underground like London.
