Giveaway... the distintive shape of a railway carriage in the ceiling of this bathroom. <br />
<br />
This £475,000 seaside cottage contains a charming secret – it's built around two Victorian railway carriages.<br />
<br />
The 19th century carriages were used as temporary housing for soldiers returning from the First World War when there was a shortage of homes.<br />
<br />
But many of them remained in place years later and had bricks and mortar built around them.<br />
<br />
And so from the street view they looked like normal houses but inside the main reception rooms were with the converted carriages.
