It has been converted from a two-bedroom bungalow to a four-bedroom house with plenty of curb appeal.

And while it has a modern kitchen, viewers could be wowed by a secret room that can be accessed through a hidden door looks like nothing more than a wine rack.

This room measures 4 metres by 3.5 metres and is currently used as what is described by the estate agent as ‘a snug or cinema room with a bar’.

The surprises at the converted property continue outside with a vast fitted outdoor kitchen that includes a commercial sized pizza oven, cold and hot smokers, and a BBQ.

Express estate agency, which is handling the sale, described the outdoor equipment as ‘perfect for outdoor get-togethers and parties’.
