Buying this house would mean never spending the night alone.
But you would need to have strong nerves as the property up for auction is in a 19th century Huddersfield cemetery surrounded by hundreds of graves.
The period stone-built former groundsman’s cottage in Edgerton Cemetery, which dates from 1825, is up for sale at a guide price of between £75,000 and £95,000.
But anyone interested in buying the striking house with accommodation over two levels with private drive and garden will also need a talent for DIY.
The property which Kirklees Council is disposing of is seriously dated and requires intensive renovation.
But at least if the nerves start to fray help is near at hand: The Spinks Nest pub is happily just across the road and perfect for a late night stiffener.
Steve Molloy, a partner with Halifax estate agents Walker Singleton, who are handling the sale at auction, said: “There’s been a fair bit of interest. But it’s hard to tell as it’s such a quirky building.”
The sale will take place at the Cedar Court Hotel , Ainley Top, on September 11.
There are 22 lots and the fun starts at 7pm. Walker’s have experience of these kind of sales with the Cemetery Lodge at Batley Cemetery going under the hammer recently at an auction which netted a £1m windfall for Kirklees Council.
The impressive Grade II listed building was sold in Huddersfield for £100,000, the top end of the estimated guide price.
The lodge, previously used as offices, is at the entrance to Batley Cemetery.
It was sold as a possible residential conversion but planning permission would be needed for the turreted Gothic-style building.
