About this property

  • This highly individual and eye catching property has been formed from a redundant surface water reservoir tank resulting in a striking contemporary home of no equal. Located in open countryside, overlooking the picturesque village of East Keswick, the dwelling has been designed wholly within the footprint of the existing concrete water tank. Thanks to the contours of Wyke Ridge, the property is largely hidden from the outside world but has spectacular uninterrupted views across the countryside towards the Harewood Estate.

    The majority of the existing structure has been retained, including the large concreate support pillars which now form part of the integral structure, although large portions of the western flank and sections around the perimeter have been removed to create an impressive entrance and large picture windows/sliding doors framing the stunning views. The innovative design also accommodates a central courtyard to introduce daylight into the heart of the living accommodation, providing a superb entertaining space and focal point.

    The entire property benefits from underfloor heading and a state of the art Control Four system which controls the lighting, heating, security and sound system at the push of a button. From the moment you pass through the oversized and imposing entrance door there is a feeling of space and light, there are reminders of the building's past and quality fixtures and fittings draw the eye around every corner. The highlight has to be the views which are most evident from the kitchen/dining area, two sides of the room being full height sliding doors which frame the surrounding countryside like a living picture. The kitchen itself is of the highest quality, designed and fitted by Harrogate based Nest, incorporating Miele appliances, a Quooker tap and ample storage space. The adjoining living/dining area is divided by a feature wall designed to incorporate a TV, with a living flame fire beneath.

    Additional living space includes a separate family room, with sliding doors opening onto the central courtyard, a flexible space that would make a fantastic gym or cinema room. A generous study that could also double as bedroom five and a bespoke fitted boot room, WC and utility room.

    Equally impressive are the bedroom spaces, all individually designed with their own unique touches. The principal bedroom suite is entered through a bespoke fitted dressing area, opening onto the bedroom with its own breath taking views across the valley. The en suite bathroom has the feeling of indulgent luxury, with slate coloured porcelain tiles, a large walk in shower, his and hers sinks and a striking polished plaster wall framing the freestanding bath. The sanitary ware is Villeroy and Bosch throughout. The further three bedrooms all follow suit, with individual en suite bathrooms and built in wardrobes.

    Externally, the property sits in about one and three quarter acres of grounds. The encompassing gardens have been carefully designed and landscaped, in keeping with the rest of the property. Two large sunken patio areas on the north and south sides of the property provide spaces to enjoy the morning and evening sun, surrounded by manicured lawns and low maintenance planting. The property is approached by a long driveway, with plenty of parking for several cars and the added benefit of a double garage with electric doors, heated flooring and built in cupboards providing plenty of storage.
