The Water Tower holds an interesting historic past and dating back to the site’s origins in 1905, the property formed part of the Fulwood Cottage Homes complex. This site consisted of twenty semi-detached houses, perched atop a secluded hill, and originally serving as children's homes. The Water Tower’s purpose was of course to take water from the nearby conduit, but also provided workshops for carpentry and painting for the children. Within this community, you could also find sewing and knitting rooms, and an assembly hall. As the years passed, the landscape of the complex transformed. In 1960, the children's homes ceased their operations, making way for a girls' approved school, known as 'Moorside'. Currently, these structures have been thoughtfully converted into executive homes, preserving their distinctive charm and heritage for generations to come. The site was also given a CPRE merit, an award for outstanding buildings/projects.
The property sits within the sought-after Moorside development, which has the benefit of communal spaces that are within walking distance from The Water Tower. The facilities include two tennis courts and an open green space positioned in the centre of the site, allowing residents to enjoy sports and the outdoors from the convenience and privacy of their own development. The surrounding areas offer a plethora of local amenities including various supermarkets, public houses, good local schooling and delightful countryside walks available from the doorstep. There are also a range of outdoor spaces within the area such as Rivelin Reservoir, Redmires Reservoirs, Rivelin Valley and Forge Dam. Furthermore, the property enjoys a convenient position on the cusp of the Peak District, making it easy to reach an array of picturesque walking trails and charming country villages to explore.
