These are the stunning views that one lucky home owner could wake up to every morning.

The Lancaster Guardian can reveal that there are plans to turn the landmark water tower at Lancaster Moor into one unique property.

Work has just started in earnest to restore the Grade II listed former hospital into residential and the developers, the PJ Livesey Group, say that the tower could be converted to one home, ranging over floor floors with far reaching views from the distinctive top windows.

A spokesman said: “It would be subject to planning but the potential is there and it would be an amazing property. The building lends itself to creating grand homes.”

More than £67m has been invested by the HCA on enabling works on the site and the main hospital building will be converted into around 120 apartments and the adjoining Campbell House split into seven mews houses.

Carlisle based Story Homes is building 190 new properties on the rest of the site.

Work is underway on a new access road and the first properties will be released for sale in early September.
