Owning a luxurious modern home is pretty much the dream of almost everyone around and the most essential part of it is being able to call it ‘our own’. High mortgage rates and the growing demand for space, especially in the big cities and towns are making this dream less and less affordable with each passing day for many. Having said that, people always seem to find a way around the problem; at least the ingenious, creative and bold ones — just like in the case of the amazing Hobbit House built by Simon Dale of Wales — this gorgeous water tower home is a wonderfully inspired and out-of-the-box solution.
Leigh Osbourne and Graham Voce decided that they would buy an old water tower originally built in 1877 that was not really in the best of conditions even when everyone else seemed to be running away from the almost ‘ancient’ structure. The derelict, Grade II-listed, 19th-century, 99ft-high water tower is located in central London. It presented them with a unique opportunity to dream up an amazing and lavish home that will not just wow you with its stunning interiors but also sheer audacity of thought and execution.
After plenty of work, the tower was transformed into what it is today- a vibrant home that sports four spacious bedrooms, a lovely living space on the lower level and interiors clad in pristine white tones to offer a very contemporary vibe. Once you step inside, you almost forget the fact that it is an old and reinvigorated water tower and the extensive use of glass in the form of floor to ceiling windows gives the owners a 360 degree view of the London.
Sleek and stylish décor, smart lighting and great views make it as good a home as you could ever ask for, especially since we are talking about London. A novel idea executed to perfection! [spotted on: homedit]
