If you are looking for a truly unique place to make a home, then this disused water tower could be the property for you.

Tucked away off Moss Lane in Ollerton, near Knutsford, the freehold tower is situated in approximately half an acre of land.

The local landmark, which is 25 metres high and was built in the mid-20th century, is listed for cash-only sale by Admove in Altrincham, with a guide price of £600,000.

And, as the tower comes with planning permission to convert it into dwelling, the estate agents describe it as a 'project of a lifetime'.

Granted by Cheshire East Council in February 2020, the approved plans include a rooftop infinity pool and a lift and staircase serving five bedrooms.

The Admove property listing reads: "A unique opportunity to purchase a former water tower which has planning permission for a highly contemporary conversion with an infinity pool situated on the roof, open views over the Cheshire plain, private driveway and all situated in a sought after location.

"Endless scope and in our opinion, a fantastic opportunity."

From the top of the tower the views extend over the Cheshire plain as far as the Welsh mountains and the hills of Derbyshire.

According to the plans, the approved conversion could be split over six floors, with a general living area on the ground floor complete with an entrance hall, dining room, lounge, kitchen, utility room and toilet.

The first floor could include a study and games room leading up to a media room and gym on the second floor.

The first two of five ensuite bedrooms will be on the third floor, with a further two on the fourth.

On the fifth floor will be the master bedroom, while the sixth floor could include a plant room and a mezzanine sitting area from the master bedroom.

Aside from the pool on the roof, there could also be a spa and a deck area.
