A charming and uniquely arranged period property built in the 1870s as a water pumping station and later skilfully converted to a family home, situated along a private lane in Leigh village. The substantial property extends to over 3700 sq ft and offers spacious and well-planned accommodation across three floors, utilising the characterful layout to offer excellent versatility and quirky rooms. Many of the buildings character original features have been incorporated into the modern conversion including fireplaces and unusual windows, while the high ceilings and generous room sizes also add to the period feeling of the home. Internally the detached property is well presented and offers an excellent opportunity for personalisation by the incoming purchaser.
On the ground floor, an entrance hall leads to a family/dining room and a separate split-level sitting room both within two octagonal spaces. In addition there is a kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room, boot room and cloakroom, plus internal access to the double garage.
