Sprawling Treasure Island-themed mansion on sale at £4m hides incredible secrets

If walls could talk, this mansion would probably tell filthy tales of wild nights filled with crack cocaine and prostitutes.

Recently placed on the market, this estate was once home to lad-mag mogul Felix Dennis, before he died in 2014.

A man with an insatiable appetite for drugs only surpassed by his love of women, it is said his home has seen more than few orgies in its time.

Built for such an eccentric man, it is no surprise there are countless bizarre secrets hidden behind its doors.

And the "Treasure Island" themed home in Warwickshire could be all yours, if you have a spare £4million sitting in your bank account.

Highfield, in Stratford-upon-Avon, was built as a fantasy home for Felix Dennis, who accumulated a £500million fortune through his publishing empire which included Oz magazine.

He was known for his sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle, and was good friends with Mick Jagger as well as other business tycoons like Bill Gates.

He eventually settled down with one woman for the final 20 years of his life, French hairdresser Marie-France Demolis.

When commissioning the property he combined his passion for "Treasure Island" and his love of barns, with an interesting end result.

The stunning mansion is set on 4.2 acres of land and boasts a cinema, a bar area, a pool and even a sauna.

Beyond the luxury, it is the bizarre secret features found everywhere that make this property truly unique.

Felix included a pirate hanging from a ceiling – along with a topless mermaid carved into one of the bed frames.

You can even find the helm of a ship on a balcony overlooking the indoor pool.

The mansion is divided into three distinct areas, all fitted out to an exceptional standard by skilled craftsmen.

They used the finest materials, such as Verona Italian marble and Lincoln sandstone.

It was designed as an "architectural adventure" and is divided into three distinct sections; the pool area, the north wing, and the west wing.

Outside the house, you can find an electric car turntable, where Felix stored his collection of Rolls-Royce cars.

Hardy climbers soften the red brick and timber weather boarding at the front of the house, and lawned areas surround the property with pathways and terraces constructed from a mixture of Ancaster stone, African slate and blue and buff Lincolnshire limestone.

It also comes with two separate semi-detached thatched estate cottages on the estate, each with two double bedrooms.
