    Attn: ghoulsters! 1 BR bijou property, "tomb with a view," up to 50 guests, 8,000

    Extras: neighbors say it's haunted.

    Any offers for a tomb with a view? Chapel and graveyard go on sale for 8,000 (Daily Mail)
    This is one new home where you are guaranteed not to have a problem with noisy neighbours - a converted 17th-century chapel, complete with graveyard.

    Residents in St Dials, Cwmbran, South Wales, have dubbed the ghoulish property the 'tomb with a view' after it was put up for sale at just 8,000.

    Planning permission has been granted to turn the historic building into a bijou one-bedroom home, complete with the graveyard where up to 50 people are buried.

    Auctioneer Paul Fosh said: 'It will make someone a very cosy, solid little home.

    'And you wouldn't have to worry about any noise from the neighbours.'

    The estate agent's blurb states: 'A detached chapel which is believed to date back to the 17th Century.

    'The building is of stone construction under a pitch-tiled roof and we have been informed that it is not listed.

    'It has planning for residential conversion - the site also offers potential for off road parking.'

    I wouldn't mind visiting, but certainly don't want to live there. I have a tough time sleeping through the night as it is.

    You couldn't pay me to live there and you wouldn't have to, as, if my passport were current and I had 8,000 on hand, I'd live there in a heartbeat. Cymru ghosts - represent!

    Yeah pretty cool indeed.

    I am not worried about the ghosts but it is a PC country and probably 1/8 acre at most. THAT would worry me!
