Leigh Osborne and Graham Voce decided to purchase a historic London water tower and turn it into a multi-million dollar home. Sounds crazy right? Well after you see the pictures of the renovation, it won’t seem so crazy! The inside is absolutely beautiful.
If you happen to fall in love with the funky designed home, know that you can purchase this wonderful property as it is on the market. The asking price? Well, just keep scrolling to find out. We wouldn’t want to shock you right off the bat!
It was originally built in 1877 by Fowler and Hill. Recently, it stood as a part of Lambeth Hospital.
At a towering 99 feet, this tower is tough to ignore. The couple purchased it for $570,000 and began every renovator’s dream.
The most noticeable difference is the giant “cube” they built onto the side of the tower. It adds a nice splash of modern to the structure’s old architecture.
Not to mention it has an awesome patio on top with a view of Big Ben and the London Eye.
Check out the interior. The enormous windows bathe the kitchen in natural light, making you feel connected with the city even when you’re inside.
In addition to the patio, there is plenty of space to entertain inside the house.
Underneath that fancy new carpet are the original York-stone stairs from when the tower was first built.
The bedrooms are simple but elegant, with the high windows letting in plenty of light while still affording you some privacy.
What would a converted water tower be without some vintage looking faucets in the bathroom?
The rich wood provides a nice contrast to a white interior.
A second bedroom? Why not! The best part of having a house like this is allowing guests to share it with you.
This looks like trendy wallpaper, but it’s actually alternating wood panels.
All these windows might make guests worry about privacy, but they came up with a solution. This high-tech glass can be changed from clear to opaque with the touch of a button.
Here is the tower, before and after renovation. Are you ready to hear how much it costs? Their current asking price is $9.3 million.
That sounds high, but with a view like this … it just might be worth the money.
