A house has gone on the market with a guide price of £360,000 – but potential owners will have to deal with a sizeable feature in the back garden that dwarves the home below.
The house located in Portchester, Hampshire, appears to be a perfect family home, with three bedrooms, a conservatory and a garage, and a nicely finished interior.
But in the description on Rightmove giving details of the sizes of each room, an agent’s note has been added to make buyers aware of what else comes as part of the package.
It states: “Please be advised that within the boundary of this property, namely the back garden, there is a electricity pylon” – and it’s unlikely the detail would come as a surprise to anyone browsing the advert as it’s pretty hard to miss.
The towering structure can be seen in a photo of the front of the property and images of the back garden show the true scale of the pylon, as it’s four legs straddle most of the lawn.
Trees and bushes have been grown around the pylon, possibly as an attempt to camouflage it into its surroundings in a garden that otherwise has a lovely grassed area and large patio leading from the conservatory.
If you can get past the imposing feature, the property comes with a large driveway offering plenty of parking, a modern kitchen, spacious living room and three double bedrooms.
There’s plenty of room for storage in the huge entrance porch and the house is described as being in “good decorative order”, meaning you won’t have to tear it all down the day you move in.
The listing on Rightmove reads: “Guide price Of £360,000-£380,000. Situated in the requested location of The Thicket is this extended and very well presented three bedroom chalet bungalow.
“The accommodation is provided over two floors and provides three double bedrooms, large lounge, modern kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory, detached garage and ample off road parking to the front.
“Offered in good decorative order throughout. Viewing is highly advised.”
When asked if buyers had been queuing up, an estate agent said: “I’m sure there will be.”
