Key features

  • Completely Unique & Individual Detached Home
  • Versatile Accommodation Sitting On A Huge Private Plot
  • Perfectly Positioned In The Heart Of Summerseat
  • Fantastic Access To Local Amenities & M66 Motorway



Occupying a commanding and enviable plot, standing proudly in the heart of the leafy village of Summerseat sits this wonderfully unique detached home!

The property, which has a rich history is believed to date all the way back to 1902 where it used to supply fresh water to the neighbouring cottages on Hill Street and then later Brooksbottom Mill. The site was decommissioned in the 1980’s and was later converted to a house in 1993. Built on a rather substantial concrete raft foundation to support the colossal weight of the tank and its contents and using a triple interlocking brick construction, this property was built to stand the test of time.

The current owners have lived in the house since then and the property now offers a rare and unique opportunity for someone to take on and make their own. Subject to the necessary planning and building permissions, the property could be heavily extended and altered to create a wonderfully modern place to call home. On the contrary, as the house is now would surely suit a medium sized family due to the sheer size of the rooms and the space on offer. The property could be used as a three bedroom home with a separate office. Alternatively, the office could be a ground floor bedroom with an adjacent shower room which would ideal for those with elderly relatives or regular visitors. Furthermore there’s a huge lounge area which is nice and private and located at the rear of the property. There’s also a spacious kitchen, separate utility room and a substantial integral garage. Three further bedrooms can be found on the first floor with another family bathroom suite.

Bass Lane is located in the heart of Summerseat which is one of the town’s most desirable places to live. With far reaching views across local countryside, there’s an abundance of other amenities on the doorstep and for those that enjoy outdoor pursuits, there’s a great selection of popular walks right on the doorstep. The local motorway network can be reached in minutes which provides great links to Manchester which is great if you need to commute. The house is also walking distance to a well regarded local school.
