Property Description

Full description

A stunning recently constructed Victorian style stone country house with the highest specification of fixtures and fittings. The accommodation extends to approximately 6650 sq ft with bespoke kitchen and bedroom furniture. Great care has been taken in the design to offer well balanced proportions and a tasteful blend of traditional features and modern luxury appliances including stone open fireplaces, stone mullion windows, multi media units in many rooms, Villeroy & Boch bathrooms suites and numerous Miele kitchen appliances. The Victorian style architecture was chosen to complement the local architecture of grand houses which were generally Mill owners houses from the Industrial revolution. This was designed as a modern day Mill owner's house. Ashcroft House has been used for many celebrity photo shoots, pop video, t.v adverts and magazines as a glamorous location and was LABC North West Finalist in the Excellence Awards 2013 in two categories - Best Sustainable Project and Best Individual Dwelling.

Externally, the property is set in Italian style tiered formal gardens including a substantial flat lawn which is bordered by open grazing land and far reaching views up and down the Saddleworth valley. The property is approached through electrically operated gates with a sweeping sixteen car driveway leading to an extensive garage.

Ashcroft House is well placed for access to the vibrant village of Uppermill which has a good selection of coffee shops, restaurants and wine bars all set in the foothills of the Pennines. The area is highly regarded with local primary schools and secondary school, cricket club, tennis club, golf club and the sailing club at Dovestone reservoir is just a short drive away. Hulme Grammar School lies approximately 5.5 miles away. Saddleworth is famed for its many festivals and stunning countryside whilst the commuter is well serviced by Greenfield's mainline railway station affording easy access to both Manchester and Leeds city centres.
