A Gothic-style house on sale for £150,000 boasts Britain’s quietest neighbours – because it was built next to a graveyard.  

The spooky home was constructed as a cemetery lodge in 1854 and offers house hunters the chance of a dead good deal. 

The Grade II listed property, which is up for auction with a £150,000 guide price, has two bedrooms upstairs and three rooms downstairs, and sits in the grounds of Chepstow Cemetery in Monmouthshire. 

A single storey extension was added circa 1964 and a timber conservatory was built around 2005, and a key to the graveyard gates will also be handed to the new owners in case they hear a peep from next door.

There’s not a ghost of chance new owners will be disturbed by noisy residents in the neighbouring plots.

The lodge may have been previously used by the cemetery sexton who maintained the graveyard. 

Paul Fosh, owner of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: ‘This lodge would appear to be the perfect period property for those looking to get away from noisy neighbours.

‘The Grade II listed freehold detached building, built in 1854 with more modern additions added in the sixties and more recently, is positioned at the entrance to Chepstow cemetery.

A single storey extension was added circa 1964 and a timber conservatory was built around 2005

‘The two bed property, with three downstairs rooms one of which has been used as a bedroom, has been modernised previously but has scope for further work.’

The home also has a large enclosed back garden, a conservatory and a parking space.

Mr Fosh added: ‘The cemetery gates are opened and closed for public access at specific times in the day to allow access from the public tending to graves.

‘A key for the gates will be supplied to the new owners on completion of the sale.’

The cemetery, located near Newport Road, belongs to the Urban District Council.
