A Refuge for the Reds

‘Withnail and I-esque’ former farmstead, in an area of North Yorkshire where red squirrels remarkably thrive, for sale for the same price as a studio in Chelsea, SW3

 

A Grade II listed former farmstead dating to the 1680s in North Yorkshire has recently come up for sale. Though “in need of refurbishment” and having an appearance not dissimilar to Uncle Monty’s cottage in the cult film Withnail and I, High Houses at Snaizeholme, near Hawes is priced at just £325,000 ($421,000, €375,000 or درهم1.5 million) – the same sum as a 178 square foot studio in Chelsea Cloisters in London.

High Houses is situated in one of the few areas of the country where native red squirrels are beating off the invader grey squirrels

 

Situated within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and located in one of 17 red squirrel refuges in the north of England, High Houses enjoys “stunning views” across the countryside of the Widdale Valley – the domain of the Wensleydale Pack of foxhounds – and comes with unlandscaped gardens and a paddock.

 

Aside from a main house with 2 reception rooms, a kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the property also includes an attached byre with potential for conversion, a detached barn that was formerly a residence and a stone-built pig sty. Selling agents J. R. Hooper & Co. point out that High Houses is supplied by private spring fed water and surprisingly, given the property’s somewhat isolated position, add: “Broadband is available”.

  1. It would make a lovely holiday home but who’d want to live there all year round? You would definitely a sports utility vehicle in winter.

  2. It’s a bloody shepherd’s hut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not worth £100k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Overpriced!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knock it down!!!!!!!!!! No point “renovating” —- rubbish!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. A shame we don’t know the square footage and the acreage but it is plainly a very, very cheap asking price. Designed to attract a bidding war I reckon. Though the particulars suggest it needs substantial work, it looks lived in and has many period features. Obviously situated within an area popular with fell walkers, this would make a superb holiday rental unit.
