A couple who bought a home online without inspecting it moved in to discover a window on the outside of the house could not be accessed from indoors.

US-based TikTok user Sissyhankshaw explained in a video they did not inspect the house as they did not want to travel unnecessarily amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Revealing she is a real estate agent, she said she was informed about the home buying process and confident in her knowledge about the industry.

Upon moving in however, the TikToker shared a video of the front of the house before revealing a window that could not be accessed from the inside.

"There is no access to the other part of the attic," she said as she panned the video throughout the interior of the home.

"There's no way to access the other part of the roof that sticks up on the front of the house."

In the video, the woman then shows a board of wood drilled onto a wall at the back of a closet. 

After removing the board of wood, a hidden part of the attic is revealed, complete with new floors, wiring and a roof. 

"It's so interesting there is no access to it from elsewhere in the house," the TikToker said, moving the insulation covering the new floors.

Fears secret room is 'haunted'

Some suggested the couple should turn it into a library while others believed a panic room would be a better option.  

Others however were creeped out by the hidden room.

"Close that back up, it's haunted," one said.

"It was probably blocked off for a reason ... demon ghost," another claimed.

"You've just released an evil spirit," a third added. 

"Am I the only one who's completely freaked out about this?" somebody else said. 

The hidden discovery is one of many surprising features in new homes bought by unsuspecting owners. 

In February, a woman posted on TikTok an eerie basement hidden under the floor of her home

The woman bought the house without inspecting it and discovered a rusty handle in the floor after lifting up a layer of carpet.
