The home, located in Haywards Heath in West Sussex, has three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a gorgeous south facing garden and a modern fitted kitchen. However, it seems the property comes with a bit of baggage. House hunters are known for checking what their prospective homes look like on Google Maps Street View.
But when buyers looked at the “open map” feature on the Rightmove site, they were left stunned by an image of two armed police officers holding guns outside the property.
Just down the road from the property were also several police cars and an ambulance.
A group of individuals can also be seen between a police car and the ambulance.
Further up the road on Barn Cottage Lane, a smashed up white van can be seen.
The images on Google Maps Street View are from April 2019, and do not show what the road looks like now.
Property hunters were left so stunned by the sight, they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One user said: “I’m sure it’s not that bad, just b****y unlucky to have the Google car drive by at precisely the moment it’s having its one-and-only armed incident.”
Another replied: “Also a crash on the corner of American and barn cottage lane. All go there!”
