A contemporary, six-bedroom property in Little Bealings, with a swimming pool and sauna indoors and a hot tub and basketball court outdoors, is up for sale at a guide price of £3.25 million.

The Bear Cave is an international-style property set in about 2.1 acres of land.

Selling agent Jackson-Stops said: “Designed by award-winning architects Wincer Kievenaar, the property was conceived by the current owners to provide a well-balanced, light and bright family home.

“Arranged over two storeys with accommodation exceeding 8,500 sq ft, the property offers grand proportions throughout, yet retaining the feel of a comfortable family home, and has been designed to connect with the garden and landscape beyond.”
