Built in 1897
This late Victorian detached house was occupied for many years by the local water bailiff who looked after Sunnyhurst Hey and Earnsdale Reservoirs. Purchased approximately 10 years ago by the present owners, Waterhouse has been skilfully renovated using original quality materials throughout, sympathetic to the Victorian era, retaining a wealth of charm and character. The property enjoys stunning panoramic views and is located in this distinctive rural area popular for many activities including walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding with equestrian and stabling facilities close by. Whilst the property is situated in the countryside it is very convenient for the surrounding towns of Darwen, Blackburn and Bolton and is within easy access of the M65 motorway and direct train services to Manchester City Centre.
