A £2 million mansion in an affluent Leeds village, home to many footballers, has a special feature in the bedroom.
In addition to a large outdoor swimming pool and a tennis court, the luxury home has six bedrooms on the first floor.
These include the master bedroom which overlooks the surrounding garden and has traditional decorative paneling running the length of one wall – as well as an unusual feature.
Located in the village of Shadwell in Leeds, this six-bedroom townhouse is for sale through North Residential estate agents with a price tag of £2 million
The luxury mansion has a ‘hidden’ room that opens from the master bedroom, which is not clearly visible on first inspection
The wainscoting in the master bedroom has shelves housing a mini library and a separate TV compartment.
What is less visible at first, however, are the double doors in the middle of the wall that seem to merge seamlessly with the wainscoting.
The double doors open into the bedroom and are walk-through to the en-suite bathroom.
As you walk into the master bathroom, the first thing you see is a large, modern freestanding bath that sits next to a large wall mirror and marble tiles.
The bath is overlooked by several windows and a separate marble-tiled shower.
There are two sinks in a large vanity unit with identical panel doors to the front as in the master bedroom – albeit in a smaller format.

In addition to the six bedrooms, the home has four bathrooms and four separate reception rooms. These include a living room that currently houses a grand piano and plenty of seating.
Furthermore, the house has a large cellar and a converted garage, from which the current owner has been running a successful business for years. The space can be arranged flexibly and can be used as a separate outbuilding for family members or as a gym.
