Unique six-bedroom house converted from 260-year-old barn on sale for £850,000 – but there's a surprise in the bedroom

A STUNNING six-bed house has hit the market for just £850k, but it's hiding a very unusual secret.

Originally built as a barn in 1755, the home has six bedrooms and a heated swimming pool – as well as a TOILET in the master bedroom.

Boasting a farmhouse kitchen, original oak beams, and three charming reception rooms, the renovated home certainly has a lot to offer.

The pad in the village of Cottenham, near Cambridge, has been put on the market for £815,000 by Prestige Property Group and is being advertised by OnTheMarket – who describe the quirky bathroom situation as an "integral en-suite."

One prospective buyer joked: “I saw this house the other day and the en suite, well, it traumatised me.”

A second added: “Yikes."

If house-seekers can look past the bizarre master bedroom set-up, the picturesque home also provides over 3,700 square feet of grounds, four-car parking, and space for a home gym.

The listing reads: “This impressive barn conversion provides an imposing yet private setting, within an incredibly sought-after location.

“This style and size of property is incredibly rare in the area and with such close proximity to Cambridge.

“This unique six-bedroom barn conversion offers a wealth of versatile accommodation exceeding 3,759 square feet and with the unusual yet useful fact that it remains not a listed building.

“We believe it dates from circa 1755.”

Regarding the kitchen, it adds: “It is fitted with matching wall and base units, range style cooker, solid wood worktops, apron/farmhouse sink.

“Free standing mobile island and a rear door leading on to the garden and what could be an excellent and very useful breakfast terrace if cleared.

The pool description reads: “It has been designed for low maintenance. It has a water current that can be set via remote control to the speed of most swimmers, perfect for health and fitness.

“There’s also floor space for additional gym equipment. A superb leisure space for the family to enjoy and when friends come to visit.”

However, the odd bathroom bedroom combo is described as just: “Large master bedroom suite with integral en-suite / roll top bath / WC and built in wardrobes.”
