It has been boarded up and abandoned since the 2015 triple killings.

A legal pack for the sale warned that buyers should “make any necessary enquiries regarding the history of the house”.

Sian, 43, played Frankie Pierre in 56 episodes of the soap in 1996 and 1997.

She was stabbed to death alongside her sons Zachary, eight, and Amon, four, by jealous partner Arthur Simpson-Kent, 56.

He then buried them in the bungalow’s garden in Erith, South East London.

Simpson-Kent admitted murder and got a whole life tariff in 2016.

Mark Heywood QC, prosecuting, told the Old Bailey during the 2016 court case that she was planning to return to live with her family “because of her condition and because of the state of their relationship”.

Mr Heywood said: “The evidence suggests, and this much is not disputed, that, on the night of December 14 2015, the defendant killed each of them in turn with heavy, deliberate, repeated blows with a blunt instrument not since recovered, and then by cutting and stabbing them with a bladed weapon in a way that ensured their deaths.

“He then covered his crimes by moving, wrapping and burying each of them, cleaning and partially painting his home.

“He misled friends, family and the police, among others, as to what he had done and where his partner and children had gone.”

Sian’s mum, Lyndall, and sister Ava were in court to watch Simpson-Kent, 56, receive the whole life order and called him a “monster”.
