A seemingly-normal home has come on the market that 'hides' a very special feature in the back garden.
The three-bedroom terrace house, in Station Road, Huyton, boasts a separate space with it's own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

According to Rightmove, properties in Huyton sold for an average £153,320 over the last year.

Terraced houses fetched an average of £107,912, with detached properties going for a much higher average of £234,926.
House prices in Huyton are down over the last year by 3% however they’re still higher than the 2017 peak of £143,162.

Images on Rightmove show that the ground floor of the property is primarily open plan, with a bright living room leading into a dining room and kitchen area.
Both the lounge area and the dining space have cosy log burners in a character brick fireplace.
The ground floor has ceramic tiled flooring througout that gives the property a modern edge.
The kitchen is fitted with integrated appliances and a light, stylish design.
All three bedrooms can be found on the first floor, alongside a family bathroom.
But the most surprising feature of this charming home is the ‘hidden’ annexe in the garden.
It currently benefits from a kitchen, a bedroom and a toilet.
However, new owners could transform this handy space into a gym, a home office or a summer house if they please.
The garden has been tastefully decorated with a patio area that boasts a hot tub and space for outdoor furniture, perfect for entertaining or barbecues.
The Whitegates listing reads: “The bright airy lounge invites you into the spacious living area with great space for both relaxing and entertaining guests.
