YOU CAN literally look down on your neighbors by snapping up this real life tower that looks like more like a Game of Thrones castle than a UK home.

Greenmount Tower, a £625K four-bedroom home in Bury, Greater Manchester, offers a 360-degree view from the top of the turret.

Greenmount Tower was built by a Victorian printing tycoon to prove he hadn't gone bust

The building was originally used as a warehouse and stables for Tottington Mill Printworks, keeping carthorses and goods there.

It was built in 1840 by owner Joshua Knowles to disprove local rumors that the businessman was going bust.

The tower looks over the surrounding Kirklees Trail nature reserve, with stunning natural views in every direction.

It once held water in case of a fire at the farm.

The property spans five floors, with two bathrooms, a study, an entertainment lounge, bar and cinema room.

The Fine & Country listing says: “Providing four bedroom accommodation, laid out over five floors and taking great advantage of the tower itself, the property offers good size living space with exceptional features that really make the most of its architecture.

“With commanding views over surrounding fields and on to iconic local sites such as Peel Tower, as well as Manchester City Center and beyond, this property certainly has an unparalleled outlook.

“As well as comprehensive living accommodation in the property itself, there is also the use of parking and storage space, within a separate communal garage area.

“Accessed via a private, electric-gated courtyard, Tower Court offers a sense of grandeur, yet with modern fittings and presentation, also provides for contemporary living requirements.

“Forming the focal point of its courtyard setting, this property enjoys a gloriously prominent position and with its scale and eminence, offers uninterrupted panoramic views in the truest sense.

“Easily accessed via a well-made lane, the property enjoys a convenient, yet semi-rural feeling location.”
