Three-bedroom house for £275k has hidden swimming pool visible on Google Maps

A three-bedroom property has just gone on the market for £275,000 – and it's hiding a feature that's visible on Google Maps.

The detached home boasts two bathrooms, a modern kitchen diner, lounge and garage.

It is located on a normal suburban street in Basingstoke, Hants., with a secret feature hiding in the back garden.

For the price it's going for, you won't believe that the home has a swimming pool outside would you?

On the Barnard Marcus Auctions listing, it says the home has an extensive range of shopping amenities locally in the town centre.

It added: "The property is served by road links including the A339 and the A33 both located to the north."

However, there isn't much detail on the added bonus feature, the only mention is in the list of the rooms at the property.

It continued: "First floor: Three bedrooms, bathroom/WC.

"Ground floor: Reception room, kitchen/diner, utility room/WC. Outside: Garage and garden with swimming pool."

Unfortunately the house failed to sell at auction but it is still currently on the market.
