Love pirates, swimming and art deco cinemas? Well, we’ve found the house for you.

A mansion in Stratford-upon-Avon with a huge pool, cinema, bar and lots of swashbuckling decor has been put on the market.

Among the Treasure Island-themed features are palm trees, a ship’s wheel, a massive fish tank, a cannon in the garden, and figureheads on one of the bed frames.

In one of the rooms, there’s even a very lifelike pirate holding a knife and posed as if he’s scaling down the rafters.

If you fancy a break from all the nautical surroundings, the property also includes two cottages.

The mansion, named Highfield, was the brainchild of the late Felix Dennis, who poured his love for Treasure Island into the home.

It’s made of three sections – the pool area, and two wings which branch off the main building.

The north wing has the two bedrooms, a bathroom, a sauna, steam room, laundry room and solarium.

Even the kitchen has nautical nods (Picture: Savills)

The south wing contains the dining room, kitchen, and study.

As if that’s not enough to be getting on with, in the basement you’ll find an art deco-style cinema and bar for you to enjoy only the most decadent nights in.

On the same level, there’s a plant room from which you can control things like the heating, lighting, security and telephone system.

There’s also a full-sized generator which will activate within five seconds if the building looses power.

In total, the building has 12,000 square feet to its name.

The property is also nearby the 7,000-acre Heart of England Forest, offering private access through the orchard.

The estate also houses two semi-detached thatched cottages.

Each of these includes an entrance hall, sitting room, conservatory, two double bedrooms and a shower room, as well as a garden and single garage.
