It is a house with “Big potential”, writes Fisher Hopper on his announcement. This British real estate agency recently put a house up for sale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, reports 7sur7. nicknames “3 Bleamoor Cottages”the home was previously occupied by a railroad worker and is very close to famous climbing peaks visited by nearly 200,000 people each year, the announcement said.

The house consists of a kitchen, pantry, living room and hallway on the ground floor. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The retail price has been set at £300,000 or around €360,000. Nothing extraordinary so far.

Uninhabitable and difficult to access

Except that the house, which has been abandoned since the departure of its former occupant, is in fact as uninhabitable as it is. In fact, extensive renovation work is required. Also, it is not connected to any network. According to the agency, when it was last occupied, the railway worker used a generator to generate electricity, a gas bottle for cooking and a stove for heating. Water was supplied by a trailer.

In addition, the accommodation is more than ten kilometers from the nearest town and cannot be reached by car. “Due to the site’s unusual location, those interested are advised that it is a 20-minute walk […] to achieve this property”, says the announcement. However, you can get there by quad or 4×4.

Despite these disadvantages and a high renovation effort for the basic price, the agency presents the place as good “a worthwhile investment”ideal for starting a potential business such as an inn, restaurant or bed and breakfast.
