When looking at it from the street, buyers may raise an eyebrow over the heft price tag for a seemingly unassuming bungalow in Morpeth, Northumberland, but once inside it reveals its considerable secrets.

The property is on the market for almost £700,000 and due to the cliff it is built into it appears to only have a single storey from the street, but is actually spread over three floors.

It boasts five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a decking area and three landscaped lawn areas.

The house features a games room with a bar, parquet flooring and a generous skylight. (SWNS)

The property also has a "man cave" complete with a bar and pool table area under a vaulted glass roof overlooking the gardens.

Also on the ground floor is a music room and home office while a mezzanine level has been designed for relaxing.

The main living room features a futuristic pyramid-shaped corner fireplace.
