This tiny mid-terrace hides a HUGE secret. Step inside and prepare to be amazed…

It may look like your average terraced house from the outside, but the story on the inside is very different!

Sitting in a quiet little village on a winding lane, you’d be forgiven for thinking this house was like any other two-bed terraced cottage across the county.

But Dracup Cottage in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, has a very impresive secret hidden inside.

On opening the Borrower-sized door you will find yourself in a giant sandstone cave that stands more like a grotto than family cottage.

The house once belonged to artist Antony Dracup, who embarked on a mission to chisel away at the basement to create an arched cave with a vaulted ceiling and church-like pillars.

After lending his artistic hand to the property, he transformed it from a regular two-bed into an extraordinary piece of architecture.

As you would expect, the rest of the house also succumbs to beautiful and one-of-a-kind designs.

The entrance hall – studded with an ornate ceiling – leads on to the kitchen made up of exposed brick walls and arches with a giant skylight.

Upstairs, the bathroom is tiled in teal and indigo that complements a bold blue roll top tub. Intricate murals cover the walls in the bedroom and orange cabinets match the window frames and curtains.

A cascading garden, landscaped by Dracup himself, features a farm of fake sheep and private seating areas in tiny, cobbled nooks amidst a jungle of overgrown forestry and entangled ivy.

This place really is the setting for the perfect Disney disaster tale.

A house with such character and architectural genius will be sure to fly off the market, fast! It’s currently on sale for £200,000 through Nock Deighton.
