The three-bedroom, detached property, off Gorpley Lane, Clough Foot, was originally built by the Water Board in 1928 for the keeper of Gorpley Reservoir.

Estate agent Hunters says the home has been “tastefully renovated and extended by the current owners and offers a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning, highly individual and immaculately presented bungalow which enjoys a unique rural location”.

As well as the three bedrooms, the property boasts a kitchen/breakfast room and "magnificent 25-feet lounge with a picture window which showcases the views of the reservoir and the open countryside”.

Externally, there are lawned gardens to all sides plus a vegetable garden with greenhouse, an attractive stone patio and a spectacular large decking area, accessed via the lounge, which is perfect for relaxing and absorbing the scenery.

The property is built on the site of the Howroyd Farm complex, which dates back to 1648 – with the original farmhouse serving as a garage. The bungalow is set in 10 acres of pasture land and includes a detached barn dating back to circa 1650, which has current planning permission to be converted into a four-bedroom home.

And, despite the secluded location, Hunters says it is only just more than a mile to Todmorden town centre and railway station.

Hunters says: “This is a truly stunning property, for which an internal viewing is absolutely essential in order to fully appreciate the location and quality of the accommodation on offer.
