Country house on sale for £1.1million has it's very own stone circle in the back garden

A STUNNING country manor has gone on the market in rural Wales for £1.15million – and there's an amazing surprise in the back garden.

The four-bed home in Bronygarth, on the Shropshire border of Wales, boasts its own library, as well as a dining room with gorgeous countryside views.

But there's one feature that makes the property unique.

Upon heading out into the "superb" garden for the first time, the lucky new owner will discover their own tiny Stonehenge.

The addition 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.

Agents at Strutt & Parker call the folly – meaning an ornamental building with no practical purpose – "enchanting".

"The temple has been described as 'one of the most eccentric park structures in Shropshire'," they said.


Elsewhere, the buyer will find a whopping kitchen divided for 'summer' and 'winter' use, a reception hall fitted with a wood-burning stove and three bathrooms.

A separate coach house outside the property has been converted into two spacious apartments with shower rooms, making them ideal for guests.

But agents say the "main feature" of the home is a "spectacular dual-aspect drawing room, perfect for entertaining".

The room boasts a "period stone fireplace and staggering rural views across the countryside and hills beyond", they said.

The large dining room opens onto a south-facing terrace perfect for outdoor dining.

Upstairs, the owner will find a huge master bedroom, two double rooms and a guest suite with shower room.

The property is on the market for the first time in 40 years.


It's not the only property with a surprise for the owner in store currently on the market.

A Tardis-style home that's narrower than a London bus in some places is available for £600,000.

The one-bed property in 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 lucky new owner has crossed the threshold, they'll find a surprisingly roomy maisonette arranged over two floors.

And a home on the market for £1million in Somerset has a topiary-based shock sure to leave house-hunters blushing.

The garden is filled with X-rated trees trimmed into phallic shapes.

Locals know the property as the 'willy house'.

In a listing erected on their website, estate agents Cooper and Tanner labelled the home as "a unique landmark in this rural community".

They added: "The stunning 200-year-old topiary yew trees adorning the landscaped front garden, and the elegant pale-yellow façade, belies a welcoming interior with old 'farmhouse' warmth and charm, and a plethora of original features."
