One north Suffolk property has ticked two shows off its TV bucket list with it featuring on Salvage Hunters and George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.
It is no surprise the impressive Dragon House near Westhall caught the eye of the shows.
The property features a large dragon on its roof and a raw tree trunk which the staircase winds around.
The Dragon House was visited by Drew Pritchard and his Salvage Hunters in 2018. The programme sees Drew on the hunt for unusual furniture pieces for his salvage yard. If you think you might have an item of interest you can fill in the enquiry form here.

Back in 2007 the show came to Essex and featured a million-pound home near Colchester.
Viewers had a tour of the five-bedroom Langenhoe home which was on the market for £1.1million. However, this wasn’t the property which won the hearts of the contestants.
The Channel 4 show is presented by Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer who helped a Chelmsford couple find their ideal home.
The series focuses on those who may be considered fussy when it comes to looking for a house but the presenters don’t stop until their contestants are happy. Make 2019 the year you settle in to your new nest by applying here.
