From Run-Down to Riches: UK Cottage on Sale for $60,000 Becomes Surprise Real Estate Hit
3 Bleamoor Cottages is a former railway worker's home situated on the main hiking path up Whernside, in the Yorkshire Dales.
A remote cottage in the UK located next to a signal box on the famous Settle to Carlisle railway has attracted worldwide interest after it went up for sale last year. According to a BBC report, the dilapidated property, which was put up for sale last year, has no electricity or running water. The property is only accessible by 4X4 or quad bike from Ribblehead.
The property generated a lot of interest from buyers but with a price reduction of $60,546 in fall 2022, no sales occurred.
3 Blymoor Cottage is a former railway worker's home situated on the main hiking path of Whernside in the Yorkshire Dales. It has become a landmark as thousands of walkers pass in front of Blymoor Cottage.
"It's about a 20- to 25-minute walk to the property. It's a way to squeeze in your shopping," Mr Spratt told the media outlet. Mr Spratt did not expect the house to become a family home again due to its unusual condition. The listing states that electricity is provided by windmills and diesel generators. Described as "in need of a suitable buyer with vision", the report said it would likely have a future as a commercial property such as a bunkhouse or coffee shack. Mr. Spratt shares that he thinks the property could become an Airbnb-style experience.
