Stunning country manor on sale for £4m is hiding incredible secret underground arcade full of classic games

A STUNNING manor house has gone on the market – and the £4million property hides an amazing secret.

The quirky five-bed mansion is home to its very own underground amusement arcade, with more than 40 fruit machines as well as other classic arcade games.

And property experts say Orchard Manor in Sutton Coldfield wouldn't be out of place in film Big, where Tom Hanks plays a young boy who ages into an adult man overnight.

Miles Shipside from company Rightmove said: "Many of us have been spending lots more time lately, but if I had a personal amusement arcade at home I'm not sure I'd have got much work done over the past few months.

"This property reminds me of the film Big, where Tom Hanks is aged to adulthood overnight and turns his home unto a private playground.

"The owners have found a brilliantly quirky way to transform a spare living space.

"Just when I thought I'd seen it all, I find a miniature Las Vegas casino on Rightmove."

As well as the game room, the private leisure complex also features a heated indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, steam room, sauna, home gym, and a games room with a full-size snooker table.

The sprawling multi-million pound home is spread over an impressive 10,431 sq ft and is set over three floors with separate entertaining areas.

The property is tucked away on a private plot on an exclusive residential area in Sutton Park.

Originally the site of Four Oaks Hall, the house and its surrounding land were sold in 1868 to Hubert de Burgh-Canning, 2nd Marquess of Clanricarde, for residential development.

It's not the only home to go on the market with a fun additional surprise for a new buyer.

In 2017, a five-bed detached home in Grimsby was revealed to have a ball pit in the basement.

And the following year, a home with a private pub inside went on sale in Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire.

Over lockdown, the houses Brits dream of living in appear to have got much grander – with private jetties, chandeliers and outdoor swimming pools on our wish lists.
