The property's design has a Mediterranean flavour.

The well-known property, on Ashfurlong Road in Dore, is reminiscent of a seaside mansion in a Costa Del Sol travel guide with its magnificent arches, balconies and swimming pool.

Built in the 1970s, the five-bedroom house was once nicknamed ‘Costa Bomb’ by a mischievous former owner – a sign even spelled out the humorous title, but this was taken down when the place changed hands some years ago.

Purplebricks, the estate agent handling the sale, has updated its listing to say the property has now sold subject to contract. It was known that potential buyers had been interested in purchasing the property and there had been a number of offers.
