Funfair-themed mansion featuring clowns and bowling alley up for grabs for £1.5m

A one-of-a-kind mansion filled with clowns and a bowling alley has gone on the market for £1.5million.

The four-bedroom property located in St Leonard’s-on-Sea, East Sussex, also comes with a cinema room and is only a minute’s walk from the beach.

You'll find a retro bowling alley in the main living area, with signage for the dodgems running alongside and a giant light-up clown's face placed over the pins at the end.

There's a colourful illuminated 'Carnival' sign above one of the doorways which has been made to look like the entrance to a circus tent and there's even a coconut shy above the kitchen sink, along with retro signs from old fairgrounds throughout.

The old-school feel of beautiful furnishings and wooden floorboards is mixed with a modern cinema room, two en-suite bedrooms and an outdoor sun terrace.

From the outside, the home features stunning brickwork and stone detailing found around the windows and above the front entrance.

The property, which was built in 1871 and had been previously used as a Victorian Turkish bathhouse, had stood derelict for 20 years before being rescued and renovated.

Its owners previously told Rightmove: "We fell in love with the building as soon as we saw it and knew we had to save it. It was a massive project and took over three years to complete.

"We were determined to keep any existing features that remained but knew that in order to convert it into a family home, we needed to be creative as well as sympathetic to the original building."

The property is on sale with Agents Platform Property which described it as a "truly one of a kind property".

The listing says: “It was formally a Victorian Turkish bathhouse, school swimming house and a glass factory, and is now a simply stunning family home.

“This incredible residence is positioned in a favoured location in St Leonards-On-Sea, a stone's throw from the seafront.

“Effortlessly combining an eclectic mix of fun features, Turkish inspired decor and Victorian character, the Bath House boasts a wonderful open-plan living area equipped with its very own bowling alley, a cinema room, three further double bedrooms, three bathrooms and a courtyard area with distant sea views.

“This truly is a home like no other.”
