This amazing Swiss chalet on the the banks of the River Thames has gone on sale - and it comes with its own heated indoor beach and a 24-carat gold bathroom.

The unique Grade II-listed property is understood to have been imported from Switzerland in 1882 and counts a submarine door among its many extraordinary features.

The five-storey, four-bedroom house is fit for a king and sits next door to Hampton Court Palace - a royal home that was once favoured by Henry VIII.

As you would expect the property doesn't come cheap and has been slapped with a sizeable £2.85 million price tag.

But the real showpiece is the man-made beach filled with 40 tonnes of sand and underfloor heating to give the impression you’re on Copacabana Beach rather than west London.

Inside is a lush oriental garden with hanging swing seats and a Koi carp pond.

A bridge allows you to see down to the beach party room with a bar, pool table, wine cellar for 1,600 bottles and a stage area.

There's also a hidden cinema room and an indoor spa complex, reached via a door reclaimed from a decommissioned submarine.   

Elsewhere you’ll find marble floors, sliding glass double doors with Swarovski crystals set inside.

Chalet also benefits from private mooring facilities.

Prospective buyers will be able to gaze on a Japanese-style landscaped garden and incredible riverside views.
