Pair of riverside cottages, Cumbria

Given the amount of rain that's fallen in the last couple of days, picking houses so close to water may not be my best idea. But you have to agree that this is pretty special.
The pair of cottages above and below sit underneath the Victorian viaduct on the edge of the Cumbrian village of Wetheral. They're for sale separately or together.
No. 1 Mill Cottages has a hall, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and pantry downstairs; three bedrooms upstairs, and large cellars.
No 2 Mill Cottages has lobby, sitting room, kitchen downstairs; three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Both have parking.
No. 2 also has a rather lovely riverside garden:

Both cottages need a fair bit of work and, given that, buying just one of the properties may not be cost-effective, particularly if your neighbour doesn't share your renovation commitment...

No. 2  Mill Cottages (except the cellars belong to No. 1)
No 1 Mill Cottages

On the market through Hayward Tod at £230k for both cottages, or £115k each. Details here, here (No 1) and here (No 2). Brochure here.
