UK’s most isolated home with no electric goes on market for staggering £300k

The UK's most inaccessible home has hit the market for £300k, but is in need of plenty of development as the property has no electric.

A property deep in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales has been described as a "genuinely unique property" in part because of how isolated it is.

Formerly the home of railway workers, the property, which is located near to the famous Settle to Carlisle railway line in the Yorkshire Dales, is in need of a fair overhaul.

No road access will make that a challenge in itself, with the home only accessible by a 4×4 or quad bike.

An asking price of £300,000 for the three-bedroom property located near to the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge has been reported.

The property is located up near the main hiking path of Whernside in Ribblehead, Chapel-le-Dale, and the property has its very own signal box, believed to be the most isolated box in England.

A small price to pay for those wanting blissful isolation, with the Blea Moor signal box near to the property and still manned by members of staff at Network Rail.

Estate agent Fisher Hopper said the home is "an interesting investment with a range of potential commercial opportunities."

No mains, no electric, and more than a handful of issues to fix including a mossy bathroom, a crumbling kitchen and garish green walls in the living room, The Mirror reported.

But the considerable renovation needed, Hopper believes, will provide an exciting challenge and there is "great potential" for "the right buyer with vision".

The scenery around the area, including a flowing river and fields upon fields, could convince some that the 20-minute trek is worth it.
