With faux-classic sporting columns either side of the front door, it looks like another lavish football mansion.
But in fact, this house was designed specifically for dogs and is touted as the ultimate in luxury for the discerning owner’s pet.
With the price set at £170,000, it is certain that the ‘dog mansions’ are equipped with all the latest modern equipment: owners can install treat dispensers, a conference call system and the houses even have a smart technology so their owners can adjust the temperature in case their pet gets too hot.

While some may scoff at what is actually a glorified kennel, with each house divided into a living room and a bedroom, the family pet no longer needs to chase the children around the garden – they can catch up with their cabinets on the televisions that can be installed.
Each house takes around four months to complete and is produced by Cheshire-based design company Hecate Verona.
For those who feel that the Colonial Villa or Imperial Roman Manson doesn’t match the rest of the decor, they can opt for the Spanish Palacio which sports an orange and red terracotta roof and is made up of 3708 individual rooms.
No expense is spared in the quality of construction and the houses feature dolomite and marble as well as metal foundations.

There’s even a scratch-resistant finish for hardwood floors.
But if nearly £200,000 is too much, the entry-level pad for man’s best friend starts at around £30,000.
Alice Williams, the company’s creative director, said: “I started working on my dog mansions after I began to wonder why a dog house shouldn’t be as stylish and beautiful as its owners.
“Our goal now is to create stately and regal homes for dogs, while seeking to complement the garden and surroundings in which it sits.
“Clients we have worked with typically have their dogs living indoors, but we view dog mansions as a way to provide their pets with the comforts of indoor living while making the experience to be outdoors more pleasant.
“It makes the dog enjoy the outdoors even more and stay more active, which is highly recommended by vets.”
