A Venetian-style palace with sprawling gardens has gone on the market, and there is no need for Brits to relocate as it is just outside the M25.
But interested parties will need to have deep pockets as it will set you back a cool £4million.
The stunning estate is located in the Berkshire village of Wraysbury and the seven-bedroom mansion looks like nothing else in the local neighbourhood.
Current owner Trevor Wynne-Jones has been sculpting the property into their dream home for 30 years and it even comes with "his and hers" thrones to give the buyer as taste that they are living in idyllic Venice.
The property draws inspiration from Italian Renaissance architecture and features historic catacombs, dramatic paintings and murals along with a vast stone fireplace.
Property website Rightmove says: "The ruins are a modern addition – in fact they were built less than 50 years ago.
"This really is one of the most wonderfully quirky homes that we've ever listed."

Pathways will lead the lucky new owner to hidden features including a waterfall, a man-made stream, carp pools, and a folly.
Among other surprises in the amazing house are its own moat and a spiral staircase leading to the main bedroom suite.
Estate agents say the owner paid just £13,500 for the plot of land the stately pad now stands on before committing three decades to building it into his dream house.
The house, called Dutch Gardens, is less than half a mile away from Sunnymeads Railway Station and a very short drive to the M25, Britain's busiest motorway.
