Whether you think it's an addictive talent contest or the death of great pop music, you can't deny that the X Factor has been a phenomenon of a TV show. Tonight it returns for its 12th series. To celebrate, we set our 280 branches the challenge of nominating an X Factor property and we'll be choosing one every week.
This week we were inundated with nominations for X Factor property of the week. Our judging panel - including our PR Manager Melanie Cowell (no relation of Simon) - spent hours in deliberation, but we're now pleased to present the winner...
Wayside, Whitbeck, Millom
Price on application
6 bedroom detached house
This wonderful farmhouse renovation and sympathetic barn conversion really has the X Factor. It's a property full of character, offering both residential and business opportunities with its four en-suite letting rooms, a restaurant dining room and fully fitted stainless steel catering kitchen.
Head judge Melanie Cowell said, "It was the beautiful surrounding countryside that swung it for me. The pictures of those green hills and leafy trees really give this farmhouse the wow factor, and I can see the property's potential for a career as a B & B. Just fabulous."
Stay tuned to see what will be our X Factor property for next week.
