Spacious 4-bed home hides INCREDIBLE secret

A SPACIOUS four bed house hit the market for £ 1 million – and it hides an absolutely amazing secret.

At first glance, the house in rural Cornwall seems little more than a fancy single-family home.

The pictures show a huge galley kitchen, spacious living room and a stunning master bedroom that opens into a huge winter garden.

But a unique surprise awaits the happy new owner.

Under the property is a huge cave system with secret pools – and even a concert hall carved into the rock.

Carnglaze Caverns – three chambers the size of a cathedral – were hand-excavated by slate miners.

Today the area is used as a leisure facility. Visitors are guided 150 meters into the heart of the hill and 60 meters underground.

The popular attraction even hosted weddings, while one of the caves doubles as a stage for bands.

Tribute acts and Christmas carols have all performed at the bizarre venue.

AMAZING SECRET

Approximately 25,000 people travel to Liskeard, 20 miles west of Plymouth, each year to go into the caves.

Agents Stags of Exeter called the business a “successful and almost unique visitor attraction in a lovely wooded river valley”.

“Business has been in the same hands for the past 20 years,” they said.

“The caverns, which arose from a historic former slate mine, are part of Cornwall’s internationally important industrial heritage.”

The grounds of the site include an old oak forest, Quarry Wood, as well as a ticket office, gift shop, and restrooms.

Parking for 60 cars is available.

The new owner will find the village of St. Neot nearby while the busy A38 is 1 mile from the front door.

UNIQUE HOME

The house is certainly very unusual, but it’s not the only one with a big secret that’s currently on the market.

An ordinary looking Swansea property, which retails for £ 250,000, hides an incredible Great Gatsby style interior inspired by the Roaring Twenties.

Another stunning property in Wales priced at £ 1.15 million hides its own little stonehenge.

Folly mimics the real stone circle that stands 170 miles away near Salisbury, Wiltshire.

It was built in 1850 using Welsh limestone from nearby Llanymynech, Powys before being placed on the 13 acre site.

Elsewhere, a Tardis-style house, narrower than a London bus in some places, retails for £ 600,000.

The one-bed property in famous Notting Hill is deceptively small from the outside.

At first glance, it looks more like a small outbuilding than a house.

However, once the new owner has crossed the threshold, he finds a surprisingly spacious maisonette on two floors.
