Instead, £225,000 will allow you to tap into a building of ‘distinctive construction’, set in a semi-rural position close to a reservoir between Longwood Edge and Golcar, and offering ‘extensive views’.

And it has detailed planning consent to be transformed into a substantial five bedroom house.

The approved scheme includes living accommodation over three floors, plus an integral double garage, and a total floor area of about 4,300 sq ft.

The development allows for an open plan kitchen, dining and living area.

And the master and guest bedrooms would each have a dressing room and ensuite bathroom.

The guest bedroom would also have a roof terrace and separate sitting room.

The grounds extend to more than an acre and the property is approached by a long private roadway off Holmefield Road.

The property has detailed planning consent from January for the change of use, including extension and alterations to the former water treatment building to form one dwelling.
