A British couple who built their dream five bedroom, New England-style home from scratch after being inspired by living in Massachusetts are now selling it for £1.25m.

Getnews.com's Maurice Quintanilla reported that the home had sat vacant for three years. The patio and one-and-a-half bathroom were all that remained after construction began.

Wealthy interior designer Douglas Stewart and wife Lisa sent photos to real estate agent Blake Chrystun to make the sale.
