Blackburn with Darwen's most expensive house currently listed for sale has stunning views, five bedrooms and four formal reception rooms on a commanding countryside plot. 

The vast detached property on Overshores Road, Turton, is currently listed for sale for £1,650,000 and is marketed by Miller Metcalfe.

The agent offers the following description: "Sat on a truly commanding, utterly breath-taking and most enviable plot, nestled perfectly on the rolling hills of Lancashire sits The Marl.

"Surely one of the most unique and 'one of a kind' properties to ever reach the market. A home full of luxury, intrigue, elegance and far reaching views that money can't buy, until now.

"For those familiar with the location or for anyone that has perhaps ever taken a stroll around the Entwistle Reservoir, then the property will of course be familiar.

"Located in a prominent position on Overshores Road, simply park yourself in one of four formal reception rooms, draw back the curtains, open your favourite tipple and watch the world go by. This really is that special.

"Re-modelled by the current owner in 2011, the property flows with elegant and sophisticated decor and surely ticks every box on the modern family living checklist.

"With an open plan kitchen area, modern bathrooms, en-suite bedrooms, a ground floor bathroom and dressing areas, all bases are covered.

"That said, the owner has ensured that the property has a traditional 'home' feel running through, which is why there are four formal reception rooms on the ground floor, all of which are equipped with log burners and have a multitude of versatile uses.

"A formal dining room to entertain party guests, a snug for your own slice of privacy, a wonderful lounge area dominated by a feature fireplace or a separate sitting area off the kitchen - the world is your oyster.

"A bright, airy and welcoming landing provides access to five bedrooms, three of which have their own en-suite in addition to a four piece family bathroom suite.

"The master bedroom suite comes equipped with a dressing area for added luxury, a private balcony to enjoy a morning coffee and admire the unrivalled views, after you can even treat yourself to a sauna after a long week.

"An added feature to further enhance its prominent position is a balcony to the front aspect. Imagine the views from here on bonfire night, a bright summers day or a crisp autumn morning.

"Step outside and take in some of the finest surroundings Lancashire can offer.

"The well renowned and highly regarded Entwistle and Wayoh reservoirs are a stones throw from this fabulous property.

"Put your walking boots on, stroll less than a minute down a private track you've reached a serene oasis that most people drive miles to visit.

"Absolutely perfect for those with dogs or young children that want to get out and explore.

"If you fancy something slightly different, walk in opposite direction to the reservoir and head to the world famous Strawberry Duck pub which is perfect for a bite to eat and a thirst quencher.

"The local villages of Chapeltown, Edgworth and Bromley Cross offer further amenities such as local convenience stores, cafes, restaurants, mini supermarkets and strong network links.

"For even more added convenience, Entwistle train station is within walking distance which provides strong links to Manchester Airport, Manchester and Preston, leave your car at home and jump on a train and see where it takes you. 

"The property can be accessed from both sides of Overshores Road, but we would recommend advancing down Green Arms Road off the A666, turn left down Bartridge Road and bare right over the bridge with the reservoir on your left. You could even park your car on the reservoir car park and go for a stroll first to take in the surroundings."
