An 84ft water tower in Cheshire, restored and converted to a splendid residence, is now back on the market at £1.75m, with Fisher German.
High Legh Water Tower, on the fringes of Knutsford and Lymm, was built in 1938 to improve the water supply to the High Legh area; decommissioned in 2007 and sold to the current owners in 2013. In 2017 the Water Tower appeared on The Restoration Man television programme, after a complete transformation and change of use into a fantastic six storey dwelling. Presenter, George Clarke, was “blown away” by the project and said, “it’s a different way of living, vertically rather than horizontally, but it’s brilliant, and I can even say I use the stairs more than the lift, all 99 of them!” If the 99 stairs are too exhausting, the lift, accessed from the kitchen on the ground floor, serves all floors.
With everything a buyer could desire, including a double garage, lovely gardens and a 600sq ft sundeck at the top!
