The mural was painted in February 2012 with the help of the Community Police, Felix Road Adventure Playground and a local artist called 3rd Eye.<br />
<br />
This two-bed end of terrace house could be worth up to £1m because the wall of its attached garage bears a hidden original Banksy artwork.<br />
<br />
The mysterious street artist painted the image of a monkey jumping on a detonator in 1999 when a friend lived at the hum-drum property in Bristol.<br />
<br />
But a year later the work was painted over in magnolia by a local resident because the monkey was scaring his young children.<br />
<br />
Over the years paint has peeled off to reveal small parts of the work which is called Slick on Brick and has been recognised as an early Banksy.<br />

Owner Christine Prior, who bought the house in 2000 and later commissioned a mural cartoon to be painted on the wall, has now put it up for sale with a guide price of between £250,000 to £300,000.
