Des res

Just to give a bit more context for yesterday's post, the house interior belongs to a house of this type - one of the smaller dwellings in Saltaire, completed in the 1850s. They don't have a front garden, though they each have a small back yard. A living room and kitchen downstairs and two bedrooms plus a bathroom upstairs make them an ideal size for a couple or single person. There are lots for sale at the moment - for anything between £117,000 to £150,000, depending on the size, exact location and state of repair. Houses in Saltaire tend to be priced quite high for their size, as you pay for the privilege of living in a World Heritage Site. A major downside is the competition for parking spaces - Saltaire residents have to have a parking permit and space is limited, as you can see. But hey, who needs a car when the rail station is only two minutes walk away and there are loads of buses too? (Not me!)

  1. Compared to RE prices in Vancouver, those prices aren't too bad.

  2. I love the character of the suburbs of West Yorkshire. The mix of stone houses , terrain and the people. I have a few friends spread around the region.
    It looks like the railway station has a flip side with the good transport links and house prices. J
