Making a splash in secret: The £270k Plymouth home that looks like an ordinary end-of-terrace… but hides a very unusual pool and hot tub house
- At first glance, this property looks like a regular three-bedroom end of terrace
- A closer look reveals its own private leisure suite in the garden
- It includes a heated swimming pool and summerhouse with a hot tub
House hunters searching for a property in Plymouth might be shocked to find some unusual benefits when they stumble across what looks like a standard end of terrace with a £270,000 price tag.
At first glance, the Devon home seems to be a regular – fairly dull – three-bedroom family home with nothing to suggest there are any hidden surprises beyond the white front door.
However, step over the threshold and it becomes apparent that the property could well be among the cheapest homes in Britain with not only a swimming pool, but a summer house with a hot tub.

Leisure suites tend to be a sought-after feature that occupy luxury country houses or the London mansions owned by wealthy oligarchs.
But this property proves it is still possible to own one in a house that has an asking price of less than £300,000.
The Plymouth property boasts a heated swimming pool in the garden
There is a summerhouse adjoining the garage, which boasts this hot tub
While the swimming pool is outside in the garden, it is heated and has a pull over cover so it can be used all year round.
And there is a summer house with a built-in hot tub, which adjoins the garage.
The property itself shows no indication of the leisure suite that has been built in the grounds, except for a jukebox in the main living room at the front.
At the back of the property on the ground floor is a kitchen, and a separate dining room and conservatory.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom, a double bedroom and a smaller third bedroom, along with a family bathroom.
What a surprise! The property for sale has a competitive price tag of £270,000
The swimming pool is surrounded by attractive decking and plants
There is plenty of space on the driveway for the vehicles of friends and family
Outside, there is a large driveway, with enough space for three or four vehicles, and planning permission for an extension.
The garage comes with an up and over door, as well as lighting and plumbing. It also has a hydraulic ramp, which is perfect for the avid mechanic, according to Connells estate agents, which is handling the sale of the property.
It explains: ‘The garden is very private and not overlooked and benefits from having the sun there all day.’
The swimming pool measures seven metres by four metres and is self-cleaning.

A Zoopla spokesman said: ‘As this property goes to show, private pools are no longer the preserve of the super rich.
‘As we head further into summer, this home will be sure to attract a lot of interest.
‘While we might not always enjoy the same amount of sunshine as the Med, this pool’s retractable cover will ensure it can be enjoyed all year round.
‘And for those tempted to transform their own garden into a tropical paradise, the cost of building a pool can start at around £25,000.’
The kitchen has white wall and base units with blue wall tiles
There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor
