“With an open kitchen area, modern bathrooms, en-suite bedrooms, ground floor bathroom and walk-in closets, all the bases are covered.
“Having said that, the owner has ensured that the property has a traditional ‘home’ feel to it, which is why there are four formal reception rooms on the ground floor, all of which have wood burning stoves and have a multitude of versatile uses.
“A formal dining room to entertain guests, a cozy nook for your own slice of privacy, a gorgeous living room dominated by a feature fireplace, or a sitting area separate from the kitchen – the world is yours.
“A bright, airy and welcoming landing gives access to five bedrooms, three of which have their own bathrooms in addition to a four-room family suite with bathroom.
“The master suite is equipped with a dressing room for more luxury, a private balcony to enjoy a coffee in the morning and admire the incomparable view, afterwards you can even treat yourself to a sauna after a long week.
“An added feature to further enhance its commanding position is a front balcony. Imagine the views from here at night of a bonfire, a bright summer day or a crisp autumn morning.
“Step outside and take in one of the most beautiful surroundings Lancashire has to offer.
“The well-known and much-loved Entwistle and Wayoh Reservoirs are just a stone’s throw from this fabulous property.
“Put on your walking shoes, stroll in less than a minute on a private trail, you’ve reached a serene oasis that most people drive for miles to visit.
“Absolutely perfect for those with dogs or young children who want to get out and explore.
“If you fancy something a little different, walk in the opposite direction from the reservoir and head to the famous Strawberry Duck pub, perfect for a bite to eat and a drink.

“For even more convenience, Entwistle station is within walking distance which offers solid links to Manchester Airport, Manchester and Preston, leave your car at home and hop on a train and see where it takes you led.
“The property can be accessed from both sides of Overshores Road, however we would recommend that you proceed along Green Arms Road from the A666, turn left onto Bartridge Road and go right over the bridge with the reservoir on your left You can even park your car in the parking lot of the reservoir and go for a walk first to discover the surroundings.”
