Nothing to carp about

Many houses come with indoor swimming pools, few have their own indoor carp pools. The Chantry in the heart of Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire is an exception to this rule and it is currently for sale for £2.35 million ($3.6 million, €3.3 million).

Built primarily in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, this 5,840 square foot Grade II* listed former chantry stands in 0.82 acres of gardens and includes 5 reception rooms, 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Unusually, however, there is also a carp pool which was used by priests to store fish caught in the river on the lower ground floor and a priest hole hidden in a wardrobe in the main bedroom.
