Tindale Towers is an iconic building. A sublime blend of imagination and inventiveness coupled with a desire to leave a lasting legacy. Built without thought to cost, this stunning four storey building has been constructed with both luxury and the environment in mind. In addition to the obvious quality of appointments are more discrete benefits such as under floor heading, a heat recovery system, self tanning showers, electrically operated soft furnishings, high level security and its own wind turbine. As well as appearing on ‘Britain’s Best Home’, Tindale Towers has won awards for design and sustainability.
The carriage driveway with electric gates is a clear statement that Tindale Towers is a unique property. The calming atmosphere with Jerusalem stone tiled flooring throughout and exceptional natural lighting creates a sentiment more normally associated with luxurious villas abroad.

The whole of the lower ground floor is dedicated to health, relaxation and enjoyment. There is a shaped indoor swimming pool with adjoining Jacuzzi, sauna, changing rooms and a gymnasium/games room. The entertainment room has dance floor, cinema screen and fully fitted bar.
