Listed Cumbrian time warp farmhouse goes on sale for less than the price of an open-air parking space in London, W2
A detached, 17th century farmhouse in Cumbria’s Eden Valley has gone on sale for just £290,000 ($378,000, €321,000 or درهم1.4 million) or £10,000 less than the price of an open-air car parking space in London, W2.
Previously listed last year for £225,000 as part of the £2.3 million sale of a 344-acre farm – where then agents Carter Jonas ultimately received 18 offers – Newbiggin Hall Farmhouse at Newbiggin is now marketed by Eden Estate Agents simply with its gardens.
The 4-bedroom house is in need of complete refurbishment but with 2,291 square foot of accommodation and a price that thus equates to the paltry sum of £127 per square foot, it does indeed seem like a genuine bargain.
The selling agents comment: “The property is Grade II listed and has retained many charming period features, including exposed beams, paneling, feature windows and sandstone flags and stairs. This is a fascinating renovation project with a great deal of potential.”
An ideal retirement project for Theresa May. She’ll be gone by the autumn so perhaps she should be sent the particulars. Mind you, the village wouldn’t thank me for sending her to them.
Very quaint but I would worry about the lack of a local bus service and what would happen if I needed an ambulance given my years.
Knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Worse than a hobbitt hovel!!!!!!!!!!!!
Interested in more information. Land area? Maps?
You will need to contact Eden Estate Agents for that information. Links to them are contained within the article. It would appear the property to be sold, though, is on a smaller plot than when it was offered for £225,000 as part of the £2.3 million sale last year.
You should stick to writing about this kind of thing and stop ruining the lives of Rhodri Philipps and his wife and child.
