A ‘stunning’ three-bed cottage set in the rolling hills of West Yorkshire has gone on the market for a very reasonable £230,000.
But pictures of the period property, which is fitted with a modern kitchen, roof-top garden and even its own bar, have baffled potential buyers for other reasons.
The owners decided to decorate its pub-style lair with quirky memorabilia – including a life-size cutout of Fiona Bruce and a photo of Margaret Thatcher.
Even more disturbing are pictures of the Yorkshire Ripper and Jimmy Savile, which appear above its fireplace.
