What This Couple Did After Buying This 139 Year Old Water Tower Is Beyond AMAZING

We’ve shown quite a few unique living styles and situations in our time doing this. There were the college kids who turned an old school bus into the ultimate surfing road trip vehicle. There’s also the guy who turned an old cargo van into one of the coolest living quarters you could ever ask for. Unique living situations are becoming more and more common. People are ditching traditional lifestyles in order to pursue their passions and dreams. I personally find this shift in culture something to be celebrated. There are still plenty of people who enjoy having the same place to hang their hat at night. That doesn’t necessarily mean they want a traditional home however. The couple below decided to repurpose an old water tower and turn it into one of the most unusual living spaces you will ever see. I personally love this place, and I think tons of other people will as well!

This old Venetian-style water tower is located in London, England. It doesn’t looks like much from this picture does it?

The tower was built-in 1877 by Fowler and Hill. It was originally part of Lambeth Workhouse and Infirmary (now Lambeth Hospital). It has had official landmark status for some time now.

Leigh Osbourne and Graham Voce bought the building, which stands at 99 feet tall, for $570,000 and have since renovated the entire thing.

The house has 360 degree views of London, making it a very sought after spot. The windows also allow a ton of natural light to fill the house.

The interior is definitely an ultra-modern feel. While it’s not appealing to everyone, there are plenty of people who love this type of feeling inside a home. It even comes with a projector already installed.
