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 (opens in new tab).
