This gorgeous three bedroom triplex apartment exudes character and style in equal measure, and simply must be viewed to appreciate not only the generous levels of space and magnificent views, but also the thoughtful design, both of the interior of the property, but more generally, the development itself which has seen the renovation and restoration of one of Ormskirk’s landmark buildings ‘The Water Tower’ which was originally built around 1850 and boasts six storeys topped by the large metal water tank. Offering apartment style living of the sort which is normally reserved for the fashionable city centres of Manchester or Liverpool, the conversion has created a real ‘grand designs’ type property. Once a building designed for function over aesthetics, it has been re-modelled into a new purpose for the 21st century, retaining distinctive architectural elements such as the side projectile pipes and arched windows, the building has been sympathetically converted into two executive apartments and provides a real lesson in how to blend character and contemporary flair. Once inside via its own private, ground floor access guests are immediately greeted by a delightful open plan family dining kitchen and living area which displays an array of quality fitted wall and base units with ample workspace, integrated appliances, built in storage and complementary tiling to the walls, this wonderful room has plenty of space to dine as well as a cosy sitting area. Further accommodation highlights include a 14’ lounge on the second floor which takes full advantage of the views, as does the master bedroom on this level which features dual aspects and stylish three-piece en-suite shower room. On the first-floor level there are two further well-proportioned bedrooms along with a stylish modern bathroom which provides a three-piece suite in classic white comprising low level wc, pedestal wash hand basin and a panelled bath with shower mixer tap. Externally, the property has access via electronic gates to a private parking area and has the benefit of a shared sun terrace, which can be enjoyed all year round due to the sheltered manner of its construction, ensuring low maintenance living does not necessarily mean that one is without a space in which to relax with a glass of wine in the sunshine. Resting in a convenient location, the property is just a short distance from Ormskirk town centre ensuring a host of local shops and amenities are close at hand, along with superb public transport links, with Liverpool and Manchester easily accessible which will be ideal for those with a commute to consider. Other benefits include gas central heating and double glazing.
