The main bedroom overlooks the stables opposite the property and is complete with all period correct features, including a brass bedstead.

Outside there is an award winning private rear garden as well as an outdoor store/coal bunker and toilet.

The property was lovingly restored by owner Joanne Francis to a 1940s home with period features, fixtures and fittings, the Evening Standard reported.

Joanne spent the last 10 years transforming the house into a 1940s replica, which includes a vast array of memorabilia from the time and even has its own Anderson bomb shelter in the garden.

Head of History at the University of Hull Rob Robertson previously visited the 1939 house with ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
