Rachael Turner explores the wonderful character property in Cheshire.
High Morland Lodge is one of a kind. Originally built in 1905 as a gatehouse, the unique property was designed by Richard Harding-Watt in Italianate style.
Featuring tower rooms, patio gardens and a roof terrace, it is sure to wow all those who visit. The house is listed with Savills at a guide price of £925,000.
Accommodation is arranged over three floors and then extends up into the tower for two more levels to make the most of the stunning views and to enjoy the roof terrace.
A bespoke fitted kitchen with Danish log burner leads to a dining area and conservatory overlooking the courtyard garden, and sitting room with French doors, open fireplace and Juliet balcony.
The lower ground floor offers a guest bedroom with ensuite facilities and access out to the courtyard, while the first floor comprises a master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a bathroom.
Climbing the tower takes you to the next level, with a seating area and access out to the roof terrace. At the top level of the tower there is a space to work while enjoying the views.
