This House Literally Has A Bus Stop On Its Doorstep
Buses have never really been ideal. They're just a bit of a ball ache, aren't they?
They smell, there's always unwanted school children on them, a mouthy git shouting at everyone, they come late and you're always waiting in the cold. The only benefit is that sometimes you see someone run for one and miss it - that's always gold.
The piss take is on a different level for anyone who lives in this house, as there's a bus stop literally on their door step.
The terraced house in Langley Mill, Derbyshire is currently on the market for £140,000, which is extremely overpriced considering you'd have to hop a fence to get in and out.
The stop is on the H1 Trentbarton bus route from Derby to Nottingham, and the shelter is directly in front of the front door, and just beside the living room window.
People willing to have a look at the property have to enter through the back (don't be childish), which is pretty much enough to say: "Yeah, thanks, but we're alright I think."
Julie Newing, who lives in a neighbouring property said: "I noticed it a couple of days ago and couldn't believe my eyes.
"The bus stop is part of the main bus route from Derby to Nottingham and it is still in use."
She continued: "It's hysterical because anyone living in that house wouldn't even be able to catch a bus because the shelter blocks their path.
"When there's so much rubbish going off in the world, you need this sort of thing to brighten your day."
She makes a few good points, does Julie. I mean, if you commute to work it's always a benefit having a bus stop nearby, but not when you have to do some parkour to get to it.
Estate agents Burchell Edwards, in charge of selling the house, claim the stop will be moved before anyone moves in. I don't reckon anyone's going to be rushing to buy it until then if I'm honest.
"It is in the process of being moved. At the minute we only have keys for the back so people are viewing the property through the back entrance," a spokesperson said.
"As we say, the bus shelter will be moved."
