LOOKING for the ultimate in luxury living surrounded by stunning rural countryside?

Then splash out on The Waterworks!

Our featured property this week is a substantial and spacious four bedroomed family home converted in 2007/8 from the former waterworks at Ramsden above Walsden in the heart of the beautiful south Pennines.

It is situated in over four acres of lawns [suitable for grazing and equestrian purposes] with access to the Wragby Bridge bridleway and Long Causeway beyond and benefits from gardens planted with 150 trees.

There’s expansive country views, extensive car parking and garaging for three vehicles.

The Waterworks dates from 1914 but was completely revamped and transformed four years ago into a sumptious, modern and contemporary residence.

Among its many splendid features the property includes:

l Oak joinery throughout

l Oak doors by Dooria of Sweden

l An oak staircase

l Feature radiators by Bisque of France

l Alarmed/CCTV

l Cat 5 networked for computers to all rooms

l A diesel standby generator

l Summerhouse

l Gym

l Multimedia/Security room

l Extensive electronic controlled outdoor lighting

l Mood lighting to all rooms

l TV points to all rooms

It is approached by a sweeping cobbled driveway with ample parking, ‘The Waterworks’ retains excellent landscaped lawns, a detached garage block and substantial sunken garden with decked illuminated garden and detached timber gym.

Yorkshire stone flagged sitting areas complete with summerhouse and basement plant room compliment the extensive garden areas.

A tour of this amazing home is a must. It briefly comprises: entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, wonderful dining kitchen and morning room, study, side entrance lobby with WC, cloaks and utility.

The upper floor retains stunning landing areas enjoying an arched window looking over the ground to open countryside views, four bedrooms with principal retaining a dressing area and substantial en-suite shower facility and house bathroom.

Yet while you are hidden away in rural seclusion, you are only a short distance to the trans-Pennine Leeds/Manchester railway links at Walsden village and an easy drive to the motorway networks.

To truly appreciate this fabulous property, which is on the market at £685,000, an internal inspection is essential.
