THIS unassuming four-bed property for sale is hiding a secret – it has a PUB inside.
Owner Alan Cardwell, 63, had a boozer and a stage added to the gigantic property when it was designed by architects.
Pressteam Seen from the outside the big four-bed property doesn’t seem to be anything special – but it’s hiding a secret
But now the company boss is planning his retirement – and has put the house with a twist on the market for £370k.
The bar is part of a sound-proofed ‘fun zone’ in the massive villa in Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire, which also has a juke box, arcade games, pool table, disco lights and a cellar.
Mr Cardwell, who owns a chemical manufacturing business, built the house in 1997 and lived there with wife Linda, 61, and two sons Grant and Kevin.
He used the entertainment room for staff parties and also held annual bashes for friends and neighbours to watch the Scottish Cup final.

Pressteam Now the 63-year-old says he hopes others will enjoy the house with a twist as much as he has
Pressteam Company boss Alan had the bar built in 1997 so he could host bashes for his family and friends
Pressteam The businessman used the entertainment room, including a pool table, as a space for his kids, while the bar was installed for more grown up affairs
He said: “The house has been great for us and the disco room is certainly unique.
“When we had it built it was ideal for my two boys because it was somewhere safe for them to socialise when they were younger.
“I held staff nights out in it and my son’s work also had a party there for more than 40 people.
The chemicals boss said it would be “hard to leave” but hopes “another family will have the same happy memories and good times living here.”
