A Stoke-on-Trent bungalow with an incredible ‘mancave’ in the back garden is among the top most viewed properties for sale during the latest lockdown.
The four-bed red-brick home – which has an asking price of £354,950 – features on property website Zoopla’s list alongside a £54. million Mayfair mansion and a £400,000 rural retreat in the Isle of Skye.
From the front, it looks like an ordinary bungalow in Melrose Avenue, Sneyd Green.
However, the home has a surprise in the garden that could make this property the envy among homeowners in Britain today.
It boasts the perfect hideaway, complete with a bar, pool table, wall projected movie screen and a darts board.
A staggering 4,234 people have take a look around the property, which is being sold via estate agents Dunn & Rate.
The details read: “Nestled down its own private driveway, this spacious bungalow built in 2006 boasts its own separate fully-equipped bar.
“Featuring a large lounge, fitted breakfast kitchen, utility, dining room, conservatory and office, it also has four double bedrooms (with the master en-suite) and a contemporary family bathroom.
“With Central Forest Park and Sneyd Hill Park both within walking distance, it would make an ideal family home, especially for those who love entertaining.”
It has been a month since England went into its latest lockdown, with Zoopla suggesting that home hunters have been using their time to look at a wide range of properties.
Tom Parker, of Zoopla, said: “With yet another lockdown firmly in place many of us are understandably using the additional time at home to look at property online.
“It’s clear that there are two types of property browsers, those on the hunt for their next step on the property ladder, and those looking for some escapism and searching for a luxurious mansion or a place in the country.”
Zoopla took properties in England, Wales and Scotland into account in its latest findings.
