A family home with an amazing secret has gone on the market for 1.3million. Stags Exeter

A spacious four-bed home has gone on the market for $1.3million – and it hides an absolutely amazing secret.

At first glance, the house in rural Cornwall appears to be little more than a swanky family home.

Pictures show a huge galley kitchen, a spacious living room and a stunning master bedroom, which opens up into a giant conservatory.

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

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

Carnglaze Caverns – three chambers of cathedral-like size – were dug out by hand by slate miners.

The site is now used as a leisure facility. Visitors are led 492 feet into the heart of the hillside and 196 feet underground.

Weddings have even taken place at the popular attraction, while one of the caves is used as a stage for visiting bands.

Tribute acts and carol singers have all performed at the bizarre venue.

Around 25,000 people make the trip to Liskeard, 20 miles west of Plymouth, to head down into the caverns each year.

Agents Stags of Exeter called the business a “successful and almost unique heritage visitor attraction set within a most charming wooded river valley”.

There’s also a stunning conservatory in the home.

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

“The caverns, formed from an historic former slate mine, form part of Cornwall’s internationally important industrial heritage.”

Nature abounds at this beautiful home in England.

The grounds of the site include an ancient oak woodland, Quarry Wood, as well as a ticket office, gift shop and toilets.

Parking for 60 cars is available.

The new owner will find village St. Neot nearby, while the busy A38 is a mile away from the front door.

While the home is certainly very unusual, it’s not the only one with a big secret currently on the market.

One ordinary-looking property in Swansea, available for $332,565, is hiding an incredible Great Gatsby-style interior inspired by the roaring twenties.

Another stunning property in Wales, priced at $1.5million, hides its own tiny Stonehenge.

The folly mimics the real stone circle, which stands 170 miles away near Salisbury, Wiltshire.

It was built in 1850 using Welsh limestone from nearby Llanymynech, Powys, before being placed in the 13-acre grounds.

Elsewhere, a Tardis-style home that’s narrower than a London bus in some places is available for $798,000

The one-bed property in the famous Notting Hill is deceptively tiny from the outside.

On first sight, it more closely resembles a little outbuilding than a house.

However, once the new owner has crossed the threshold, they’ll find a surprisingly roomy maisonette arranged over two floors.
