I was greatly amused by a recent posting on the BBC News website.
A newly built house in Langley Mill, Derbyshire, has been constructed immediately behind a bus stop and shelter. And I do mean ‘immediately behind’ to the extent that you cannot access the front door without climbing over the fence!
Enjoy this video clip of the property:
Local residents have labelled it ‘bizarre’ and ‘a laughing stock’.
The Estate Agent tasked with selling the two-bedroomed terraced house with an asking price of £140,000 is Burchell Edwards. Taking a typically optimistic line, a spokesperson said it was ‘attracting a lot of interest’ and emphasised that it has ‘a beautiful interior so it would make a great starter or rental property.’
Goodness knows what is outside the back door but at least the occupiers should never miss their bus again…
