Mansion on sale for £1Million is being mocked for being very rude – but can you spot why? | The Sun
DIRTY minds might see a problem with these photos of a beautiful £1million mansion.
The stunning six-bedroom home is set in rolling countryside near Axbridge, in Somerset – but can you spot something about the property which might make you giggle?
The period house boasts a quiet location with outbuildings and four and a half acres of South-facing gardens.
It hit the market 10 days ago for an eye-watering £1million, yet on Friday one Twitter user pointed out something rude in the pictures.
Her tweet drew attention to the bushes in the front garden that appear to be shaped like phalluses.
The six pieces of titillating topiary have bulbous bottoms, long shafts and a large, conical head.

They stand proudly by the side of the road, flanking the path leading up to the house, and casting inappropriate shadows onto the front lawn.
The house is in fact named after its pruned yew trees, another of which has been shaped into a large bird.
UCL Linguistics lecturer Dr Beth Malory, who spotted the house online, laughed: “Interesting topiary. Rightmove is a goldmine of weirdness!”
Dr Malory's observation is hard to un-see as the healthy, green shrubs are pictured at the forefront of the main photo on the Rightmove property listing.

In addition to the phallic trees, one lucky homeseeker could be the next owner of a stable, chicken coop and a detached cottage with a bedsitting room, kitchenette and shower room.
A stone wall bordering the grounds also leads to the idyllic scenery of National Trust Land designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The property sits below the Mendip hills and is close to the village of Axbridge, nine miles from Weston-super-Mare and 18 miles from Bristol.
Estate agents Roderick Thomas, who are selling the house, said: “The well-arranged gardens include splendid yew trees which for many years have been wonderful examples of topiary."
Further down in the description the 200-year-old phallic plants are described as "dominating" the garden.
The funny bushes follow a similarly rude tree that was snapped before Christmas last year.
The newly erected Christmas tree in Derbyshire left locals in hysterics thanks to its inappropriate appearance.
The tree has been placed in Derby city centre and shoppers have been stunned at its shape.
Cheeky locals were quick to make jokes on Facebook about the tree's phallic shape.
Five years ago the same joke was made about Christmas lights on palm trees.
The small Italian town became world famous after accidentally erecting some rude Christmas lights on its palm trees.
Photos of the Christmas lights in Civitanova Marche went viral after being posted on Twitter by American model Amanda Cerny.
She pointed out how the phallic the decorations look and wrote: "Why you don't put Christmas lights on palm trees."
The lights cover the trunk of the tree and its bulbous top, before suprting out along the leaves of the palm trees.
