A five-bedroom ‘family haven’ in the UK has hit the market for £1.45 million (AU$2.5 million) – but it comes with a bizarre feature. 

From the outset, the home seems like a great deal: close to transport, bright and spacious living areas and a large garden. 

And also, oddly, 320 power points.

While the listing makes no mention of the power points, they’re clearly visible in the photos – and it’s got social media users talking.

“Thinking about buying this house, but I’m not sure it has enough plug sockets,” Toby Davies tweeted.

And the tweet, which garnered over 2,000 retweets and 7,000 likes, had other Twitter users in hysterics.

“Bet you still need an extension lead in the one corner you want to put the telly,” one user said.

“I like to think this was a really passive aggressive act towards the end of a failing marriage when one of them yelled “and we need more plug sockets” so the other person obliged and now they’re divorced and selling the house and both moving to houses with less plug sockets,” another said.

“The last electricity bill was £1,452,092 for the quarter,” added another.
