The decommissioned Harrier II jet plane parked on the lawn of a mansion in Hampshire could be included in the £3.95 million price tag.
Located on the Durfood Wood Estate, this Arts & Crafts style six-bedroom home comes with a full payload of added attractions.
Parts of the 10 acres of grounds were designed by Gertrude Jekyll, a prominent horticulturalist who created landscapes for the architect Edwin Lutyens.
In addition to the main house, there is also a second four-bedroom guest house called The Hollow, with a patio and a terrace leading up to the water.
Parked on the lawn behind the house is the Harrier II jump get – a GR7 model that is one of just eight of its kind left in the UK.
Named for the hawk, they’re called jump jets because of their ability to take off vertically or with just a short runway.
It comes with a Rolls Royce Pegasus 11-21 Mk. 105 turbo fan engine, designed by British aero engine manufacturer Bristol Siddeley, and drop tanks –expendable extra fuel tanks attached to its exterior.
The fighter-bomber plane also has a Sidewinder missile – a type of air-to-air missile developed in the Fifties that was the first heat-seeking guided missiles used in military operations.
Don’t worry about getting trigger happy, though. The missile is inert and was used for training.
Harrier jets were in production between 1936 and 2003. In 2011 they were retired from UK military service and most were sold off to the US Marine Corps to be used as spare parts for their own fleet.
This particular plane escaped being cannabalised for parts, however, because it had been sent for repairs that were later abandoned.
With so few intact GR7s left in existence, this makes the jet sitting on the lawn a rare piece of 20th-century military history.
For reference, a GR3 Harrier jump jet dating from 1976 and in “time-capsule condition” sold at auction in 2014 for £105,800.
Even if the attack jet in the garden doesn’t cause your imagination to take flight, the house itself has been fully renovated and features beamed ceilings and a grand stone fireplace in the dining room.
Other properties on the market with unusual extras included in the sale include a £20 million north London mansion complete with its own polo pitch, and a flat in Finchley with the previous occupant's illegal cannabis farm still in situ.
