Three-bed home for sale in stunning shadow of 170-year-old viaduct

A three-bed home in North Yorkshire has one feature that sets it apart from others – it sits under a huge 170-year-old viaduct.

The detached, family house is all on one floor but boasts a modern, open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge.

It also has two double bedrooms – with ensuites – and one smaller bedroom.

But the bungalow, which is on the market for £695,000, has one rather unusual feature – It lies in the shadows of the Knaresborough Viaduct, North Yorkshire.

The Grade II* Listed Gritstone, four arch bridge over the River Nidd was built in 1851 and stands at 80.5ft (24.5m) tall.
