A TWO-STOREY detached property shaped like a teapot has gone on sale for £10,000.

Ian Hunter's Magical Teapot, near the village of Lilliesleaf in the Scottish Borders, is described as an "enchanting hobbit hideaway".

The artist sculpted it in the grounds of his cottage and it is being pitched as somewhere a "little bit different" to live.

It is described as having a unique multi-functional two-storey space.

The marketing brochure states: "One thing is for sure, it always makes folk smile."

The design includes a gangway door in the spout leaving to the lower floor. The stairs to the upper floor are in the handle.

Giles Charlton, of selling agents Rettie said: "It's quite unusual, there's certainly something magical about it.

"You could say it's the strangest house in Scotland."
