If you're ever offered the chance to live like royalty you'd be forgiven for dismissing the opportunity with a healthy dose of cynicism, but there's now an apartment on the market near Stourbridge that genuinely looks fit for a king or queen.

The "prestigious" Broome House is apparently thought be several hundred years old, dating back to the mid-1700s, and it's now a grade two listed building.

The country house is set within what are described in the Purple Bricks listing as "the most idyllic landscaped grounds" and there's even a "picturesque lake with ducks" to complete the dream environment.

The 18th century building has, according to the seller, been converted "sympathetically" into apartments, and the online advert gives us a sneak peak of what what one of these impressive flats is like inside.

The above apartment is on the market for £250,000 plus the usual additional service charge and ground rent.

The photographs accompanying the listing obviously make it look irresistible but the marketing copy is incredibly appealing too, as you would expect.

It says: "The property is approached down a private leafy driveway via electronic gates with the driveway sweeping round and opening up to the most magnificent view where you will see a picturesque lake with the ducks enjoying their tranquil surroundings and beyond this there are immaculate communal gardens, a sun terrace and an orchard to the rear."

What's not to like about that?

"The apartment is entered via a timber door and gives access into a spacious and welcoming hallway that is currently being used as a home office, this in turn leads to a generous lounge diner that benefits from a dual aspect view, high coved ceilings and is flooded with natural light, there is a well-equipped modern kitchen with integrated appliances and granite work surfaces, a double bedroom with a lovely leafy view of the gardens and a good sized shower room."

And the listing concludes by talking up the local area: "The Village of Broome is a highly sought-after area and is situated on the lower slopes of the Clent Hills and is located on the outskirts of Hagley which is well served with a host of amenities to include cafe's, bars and eateries."

The house was added to Rightmove on August 11.
