Former station house, West Yorkshire

This is an odd one. Definitely swings and roundabouts.
On the one hand you've got a handsome, stone-built detached house with stables, paddock, double garage and two acres-ish.
On the other, you've got a house that fronts onto train tracks and a long row of industrial sheds, and has had a pretty dull renovation job done on the inside.
The former station house is at Calverley Bridge, between Calverley and Rodley around six miles from Leeds.
Upside is three good-sized bedrooms and a decent-sized living room and dining/family room.

Downside is a narrow kitchen and a downstairs bathroom in the linked stone building (to the right of the pic at the top of the post). Plus the bathroom and at least one of the bedrooms looks damp:

However, that's not unusual in older houses - we chuck in uPVC windows and concrete-based plaster and wonder why the moisture we create stays indoors with us.
Back to upsides. A stable block and a part-finished paddock:

There's around two acres of land in total, some of it running alongside the track:


The house is on the market through Waite and Co, at offers over £250k. Details and more pictures here. Location and maps on Zoopla here.
