Bizarre nature-themed home with fake grass for carpets on sale for £300,000

This unusual house with fake grass used as floorings is on the market for almost £300,000.

The bizarre four-bed property features the fake grass in several rooms, including the large conservatory area and the bathroom.

The estate agent considers the property, in St Austell, Cornwall, a “spacious and versatile” family home.

And the four-bedroom house gives the feeling of having nature inside the home, with the bizarre flooring material.

The listing by estate agent Liddicoat & Company reads: “An opportunity arises to acquire an unusually large semi-detached house conveniently situated on the fringe of St Austell town offering very versatile two family accommodation being split to provide separate ground and first floor accommodation.

“This very deceptive, spacious and versatile property provides for two separate living areas on the ground and first floor and would be ideal for two family accommodation or for an investment buyer.”

The light green artificial turf has even been specifically cut to fit into steps leading to the greenhouse outside.

The indoor flooring then continues through the hallway and into a utility room and bathroom.

But the living room and bedrooms have been decorated in more of a traditional sense with carpet and laminate.

Images of the house have been shared on a property forum online.

One user joked: “Someone got a good deal on artificial grass.”

St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall, near golden beaches at Porthpean and Duporth.

However, the average house price in the town is £263,544, according to Rightmove.

Overall, sold prices in St. Austell over the last year were 10% up on the previous year and 22% up on the 2017 peak of £215,636, data on the property website states.

The town is around 15 miles – and 30 minutes – from Cornwall’s county town Truro.
