    In at number four is this totally quirky Grade II-listed home in Surrey.

    It’s understood the five-storey, four-bedroom house was imported from Switzerland in 1882. If you think that’s eccentric, just you wait for it…

    The house boasts its own heated indoor beach! We didn’t know that was even a thing. And if that’s not intriguing enough, there’s a 24-carat gold bathroom.
