One reason for this is its location. Gardeners and sun worshippers will go crazy for its south-westerly aspect, and the views on offer are sensational. They take in Old Harry Rocks, Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island and the national Trust-owned Shell Bay beaches. On a clear day, you can also make out the dramatic Purbeck Hills.

Inside, the place is a geek's paradise. Agents Savills say that when the house was built, 'it was regarded as the most technologically advanced house in England.' Let's take a closer look, shall we?

In the basement, you'll find a full 'leisure complex'. No, we're not talking table football set up in the back of a garage folks! This comprises a swimming pool complex with sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, treatment room, changing rooms and even its own kitchen.

From here, you can stroll straight down to the water's edge and your own jetty. There's no yacht not included, sadly.

For more substantial cooking facilities, head back to the first floor of the main house, where you'll find a state-of-the-art kitchen. It's kitted out with Gaggenau appliances and possibly the biggest extractor we've ever seen!

The master suite is one of seven bedrooms in the property, with a view that should guarantee a restful night's sleep.

On sale through Savills, the house has a jaw-dropping price tag of £8.75million, putting it out of reach to all but the very rich or famous.

Still, a girl can dream, can't she?
