There is also a gym, billiard room and cinema room as well as a freestanding pavilion in the park.

And the mega house – called Dean Park Manor – is a stone’s throw from the notorious millionaire enclave of Sandbanks.

But it riled a potential buyer after it was tagged online as a ‘magnificent gentleman’s residence’ in both property listings.

One user, called Lesley, fumed that the wording was outdated and discriminatory against certain shoppers.

She wrote: “Which dinosaur thought this was a good idea? You have no guidelines.

Rightmove, which listed the property, tweeted it saying, “Hello and thank you for bringing this to my attention.

“I have reported this issue to our Data Quality team, who will investigate this listing and the key feature you identified.

“If you have any further questions or queries, please let me know.”

But she was stunned when the company said it would not remove the phrase following an investigation because it signifies a home with “period features”.

Rightmove said in another tweet: “Following our investigation, we will not be removing the listing.

“As a ‘gentleman’s residence’ it is classed as a house with many period features, but not as formal as a country residence.”

Lesley angrily replied, “Good luck selling your ‘gentleman’s residence’.

“You don’t seem to see how offensive it is, regardless of the ‘true meaning’.

“Strangely, the ‘master bedroom’ is no longer used. Although based on your ranking, it is what it is,” she added.

The controversial phrase was mentioned in the main characteristics of the house.

It reads: “Successful luxury Airbnb property, magnificent gentleman’s residence, expansive private grounds – 0.8 acres – swimming pool and outdoor entertaining area.

“Ten bedrooms, nine bathrooms, open kitchen / family room, possibility of annex with separate entrance, independent pavilion on the ground, independent garage.”

The full listing adds: “An incredible opportunity to acquire a magnificent character home currently being used very successfully for luxury holiday rental.

“This very special property is ideal as an Airbnb or as a substantial family home and is located in a conservation area adjacent to Bournemouth town centre.

“With its array of cafes, bars, clubs and restaurants and the beautiful gardens which link Bournemouth Square to its lovely sandy beaches and bustling pier.”

Rightmove and Luxury and Prestige, which sell the property, have been approached for comment.
