Normal looking semi-detached house with unexpected garden for sale

A seemingly normal home has hit the market in Merseyside – but it has an unusual addition to the back garden.

The four bedroom semi-detached property sits on the corner of a cul-de-sac, on Oakwood Drive, Southport.

Although it looks like an average house from the front, in the garden is an impressive “Arctic hut”.

The property went on the market in January this year with Entwistle Green for £275,000.

According to sales information from Rightmove, properties in Southport had an overall average price of £226,844 over the past year.
