Cool swimming pool, Zoopla (Source: Zoopla)

Zoopla has moved into fancy new offices near Tower Bridge which boast a wine cellar, and a swimming pool (which actually seems to be a presentation room).

The property portal - which also owns websites uSwitch and PrimeLocation - has taken up a space of 45,000 square feet for its 500 London staff.

The company has rented a space that it says is a "distinct departure from typical office environments". There's a study, living room, dining room, and library, which are all intended to give Zoopla's employees the feeling of working from home.

Slightly stranger parts of the office include the "treehouse", which appears to be a room with trees in it, the "swimming pool", and the greenhouse.

Zoopla had the office space at The Cooperage, 5 Copper Row, renovated before moving in so that it was in keeping with the company's "vision".

Alex Chesterman, founder and chief executive of Zoopla, said: "This move marks another exciting chapter in our journey and it is great to have all our London-based staff under one roof."
