A ‘stunning’ house has come on the market in Merseyside and it's nestled within a secure gated community.
The four bedroom property, which is located in Knowsley Village, is one of a small number of houses set behind the private gates of Dumbreeze Grove.
The average price for property in Knowsley sits at around £230,000, according to property website Zoopla.
But houses in Dumbreeze Grove come in at an average price of £577,000, taking them way beyond the average price for the area.
Homes in this gated community stand within the grounds of the former Dumbreeze House, which was a castle dating back to the 17th century. The street is surrounded by Lord Derby’s estate.
Priced at £675,000, this impressive family home has a bar area, a family games room and a large front and back garden.
One of the most impressive features of the house, which was built in 1996, is the large 39ft kitchen and dining room. It overlooks the surrounding gardens and has access to the patio and lawn area through French doors.

The kitchen is fitted with a ‘comprehensive range’ of base and wall units and leads on to the utility room.
Images on Purplebricks show that, as well as the massive kitchen which almost spans the length of the house, the bottom floor also boasts a bar and games room.
On the first floor of the property there are four double bedrooms and three further bathrooms.
Two of the bathrooms are fitted with new shower rooms and the main bedroom suite has dual aspect windows and a Juliette balcony overlooking the gardens.
The second floor is taken up by a spacious bedroom with an enviable walk-in wardrobe and ‘fantastic’ views of the garden and beyond.
The house has been fully modernised by the current owners, who have lived in the property for 18 years.
They also have planning permission for an indoor swimming pool to be built on the side and have previously extended the kitchen area and added a separate room which is used as a bar.
The listing reads: “Purplebricks are pleased to offer for sale this fantastic detached property situated in this sought after location in Knowsley Village.
“This exclusive development of properties sits within the grounds of the historic Dumbreeze House and is accessed through electronic gates via a secluded tree lined drive.
“The property has been significantly improved by the current owner including an addition of a sports room and extra dining room space and is presented to an exceptional standard.”
