An award-winning art deco house that has been dubbed the best home in Britain has gone on the market for £2.2m.

And the four storey property is filled with environmentally-friendly features and gadgets.

Additionally, residents can enjoy a fully-fitted bar with a cellar, dance floor and cinema screen.
There are also doors that open to the spacious, Mediterranean-inspired gardens.
And you’ll never get bored in this house thanks t the large games room and gym area.
The ground floor is the hub of the home, with a cloakroom and laundry room with double doors to the grand internal hallway which leads to the living room, sun room, grand staircase and bespoke kitchen.
Up on the first floor, you’ll find four luxury bedroom suites all with balconies, bespoke bathrooms and dressing rooms.
The bathrooms even have shower sections with fitted sun showers and self-tanning UV panels – meaning you can literally get your tan on without ever having to leave your house.
On the second floor is the penthouse master suite with a large open-air deck leading off the galleried landing and a spiral staircase and a separate study room.
