How to buy a colonial house in Indonesia

A colonial house, once one of the most desirable dwellings in Indonesia, has been sold for just £5,000, according to a local newspaper.

The house is located in the city of Pekanbaru, in the centre of the Indonesian province of Sumatra.

In an article published on Tuesday, the newspaper reported that the house has been bought by an unnamed buyer who has yet to be identified.

The buyer is from a poor family, who has been living in the house for five years, according the report.

The owner of the house, who is a retired farmer, has not been identified.

In December, the house was sold to a buyer who is also a farmer.

The new owner, who lives in the neighbouring town of Pangarapur, is reported to have made the sale without any contact with the local community.

The news comes after the Indonesian government ordered the closing of all schools and colleges in the province of Pemba to protect against rising numbers of people fleeing the island nation.

The government has also announced that all schools will be closed on the island for the next two months.

The Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, has previously called for the closure of schools in the islands mainly Muslim majority provinces.
