The American south in Lancashire: Huge ranch-style mansion has everything from a hot tub to a cobbled driveway

Those pushing the boundaries of the American frontier were famously captivated by the views out west; the massive skies, the endless land.

LA-style Edwardian mansion with three storeys, an annex, and a pool on the market for £1.2m

In big glitzy American dramas, lives tend to be lived out in huge, sprawling mansions whose gardens are bigger than most flats and which always come with blue skies and pristine outdoor swimming pools. It's the stuff of dreams: a private pool, a big garden (likely with a BBQ in some corner or another), and clear skies under which to loll about. Well, I can't guarantee the nice weather, but this £1.2m super-house certainly offers everything else required.
