Home hunters are being encouraged to roll up for a unique fairground inspired house that is on the market for £1.5 million and comes with a special feature.

The house has all the fun of the fair with a flashing neon clown, dodgem signs and a coconut shy, but what really makes it stand out is a bowling alley in the living room.

For fans of bowling it would give them the chance to perfect their strikes a step away from their sofa.

It looks like a traditional alley, with the balls lined up on the side and pins out ready for action.
