A LUXURY home formerly owned by an inventor, who built a model railway in the gardens, can be yours if you have £1.1 million hidden away.

Although the model railway no longer remains, the house has more than enough features to attract willing buyers.

Aptly named The Lake House, a large lake sits in the gardens, home to carp and other fish. Newts have even been spotted beneath the water.

A red timber ‘Monet’ bridge leads people to a secret elevated garden, discovered by a set of stone steps.

The house was built in 2010 in the garden of a traditional 1870s home and there are plenty of reminders about the property’s Victorian heritage.

As you step inside the house into the entrance hall, you will be greeted by a bronze Victorian stonemason statue.

If walk past the statue and head up the spiral staircase, you will be greeted by the four bedrooms in the house.

To the front right, the master bedroom takes pride of place, complete with its own luxury dressing room, en-suite and lake views. The dressing room also has its own balcony and is spacious enough to potentially be turned into a fifth bedroom.

To the front left of the floor level, bedroom two, a spacious double, also features its own lake and garden views, sharing a Jack and Jill bathroom with bedroom three to the rear.

Bedroom four is currently used as a sewing room but again looks out over the beautiful gardens.

If you head downstairs, you will find a budding leisure and entertainment complex.

A central hall once housed a model railway and now provides ample room for storage alongside access to the garden outside.

A home gymnasium is under construction, with a hot tub and changing cubicle already in place. There is also a games room, with a full-size snooker table.

The current owners have been approached by film-makers eager to capture the location on the big-screen and whoever buys the property will be able to watch films in a room which is destined to be a cinema room.

The guide price of the property is £1,100,000.
