A SPACIOUS four-bed house has hit the market for £1m – and it harbors an absolutely incredible secret.

At first glance, the house in the Cornwall countryside seems like a luxury family home.

Photos show a large kitchen, a spacious living room and a gorgeous master bedroom, which opens onto a huge conservatory.

But there’s a unique surprise in store for the lucky new owner.

Beneath the property is a huge cave system complete with secret pools – and even a concert venue hewn out of rock.

Carnglaze Caverns – three compartments about the size of a cathedral – were dug by hand by shale miners.

The site is now used as an entertainment facility. Visitors are led 150 meters into the center of the hillside and 60 meters underground.

Weddings even took place at the crowded attraction, while one of the caves was used as a stage for visiting bands.

Memorial acts and carols all performed at the quaint venue.

GREAT SECRET

About 25,000 people make the trip to Liskeard, 20 miles west of Plymouth, to descend into the caves each year.

Agent Stags of Exeter calls the business a “successful and virtually unique heritage attraction located in the most captivating wooded river valley”.

“The business has been hand in hand for the past 20 years,” they said.

“The caves, formed from a former historic shale quarry, are part of Cornwall’s internationally important industrial heritage.”

The site’s grounds include an ancient oak grove, the Quarry, as well as a ticket office, gift shop, and restrooms.

There is parking for 60 cars.

New owners will find the village of St Neot nearby, while the busy A38 is one mile from the front door.

UNIQUE HOME

While the house is certainly out of the ordinary, it’s not the only one with a big secret currently on the market.

An ordinary-looking property in Swansea, priced at £250,000, hides an astonishing Great Gatsby-style interior, inspired by the loud twenties.

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

The Madman imitates the real stone circle, located 170 km away near Salisbury, Wiltshire.

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

In other places, a Tardis house is narrower than a London bus in some places available for £600,000.

The famous Notting Hill one-bed hotel can be said to be very small compared to the outside.

At first glance, it is more like a small construction than a house.

Once the new owners have crossed the threshold, however, they will find a surprisingly spacious cottage spread over two floors.
