This former East End pie and mash shop is hiding a big secret. 

Obscured behind the old-fashioned storefront is an incredible three bedroom house, liquor not included. 

And if you fancy owning the secret hideaway, you can - as the unusual property is currently for sale for more than £1million.

J.Gooding’s Pie ‘N’ Mash shop has been transformed into a quirky and eco-conscious home which comes complete with three spacious bedrooms.

Situated on Well Street in Homerton, East London, the eclectic pad has a whole wealth of charm and original features including tiled walls, wooden floors and of course the unique shop frontage.

Having been minimally modified to offer privacy for wannabe residents, the home is far more impressive than its retail-like facade suggests. 

"J.Gooding’s Pie ‘N’ Mash shop has had the Michelin star design treatment (if that were a thing) and now has been transformed into a trendy, eclectic and eco-conscious home, complete with three bedrooms, a living and working hub," the listing details explain. 

"The green private courtyard is the topping on this well-baked home."

Walking through the front door you'll come to a bright and airy studio or living space, with original tiled walls and floors, Crittal windows, and some unusual wooden framing on the ceilings.

There's also floor to ceiling storage for displaying homewares and other treasures. 

According to the property's listing, this space is the soul of the home with a kitchen, with sleek black units, positioned in the back leading out to a pretty, private courtyard.

The courtyard garden, unusual in many city properties, offers some peace and serenity that will give wannabe homeowners a chance to escape the bustle of the home's east London location.

It also offers enough space to entertain during the summer months.

Back inside and up the stairs, a second level takes you to two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a home office, which was originally the pie shop’s store room.

Commenting on the unusual property Daniel Copley, consumer spokesperson at Zoopla said: "There’s certainly more than meets the eye when it comes to this unassuming pie ‘n’ mash shop in Homerton.

"Behind its shop front is a truly unique and spacious family home that’s brimming with character and original features including crittal windows and wooden floorboards.”

The pie and mash shop isn't the only unique property that has caught our interest recently. 

Back in September a £4.5m ‘Gothic’ house built in the grounds of a Victorian graveyard and featured on Grand Designs caused quite the buzz on social media.

Fans of the show headed to Twitter to give their views on one of the most unique builds in the show’s history, with some describing the episode as the “best Grand Designs ever”.

The project was definitely one of the strangest in the show’s history with viewers left amazed by the ‘goth house’ being built in the cemetery, complete with a moat and a chainmail water feature.

Back in November we fell in love with a cute little “Hobbit” house made of polystyrene coated with mud and cement, which was up for sale for $220,000 (approximately £166,000).

The sweet one-bedroom home looks as though it could be straight out of the Shire, but is actually located in Marshfield, Vermont, US.

And last September we were amazed by an ordinary looking house, that came complete with a full-sized skate park on the ground floor.

Meanwhile a converted lighthouse perched on the edge of a cliff in Pembrokeshire has recently gone on the market for just under £1million.

Converted into a home with eight bedrooms overlooking the Irish Sea and the dramatic Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it sits just 15 miles from the Welsh town of Haverfordwest.

Small but perfectly formed houses have been capturing our attention too. 

From the tardis-style home, which in some parts is skinnier than a London bus, up for sale for just under £600,000, to the tiny detached house which measures just 4m by 4m which is believed to be one of the smallest detached houses in the UK.

Then there was the house believed to be the narrowest in London which went on sale last year for an impressive £1million.

The unusual property on Goldhawk Road in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, may be just 5ft 5in wide, but certainly makes up for its lack of width with five floors of swish interiors.
