Your shot peeked my interest so I had to check the house out a bit more.  Interesting what it started out as and what it has turned into.

"This unusual structure was once a cleverly disguised 30,000 gallon water tank. It served the village of Thorpeness, north of Aldeburgh before it had a mains water supply."

Great shot. Nice house but did you notice the windmill too?  Is it also strange or my mistake?
Interesting place.

What a fun place. Doesn't look very spacious, though.

It was originally a water tower and the windmill there pumped water into it.   But the house part was finished in 1987.  You can rent it for £700 a night.

Interesting place.

The history is the house used to be a water tower,  and the windmill pumped water into the water tower.

Ah, they're stacked vertically. Clever, didn't notice before but it sure makes sense.

If not that would be a daily cardio workout not to mention a real workout carrying luggage and groceries up a ton of stairs.

Great views from inside that house but I much prefer the comforts of my boat.  Besides my boat is paid for so no nightly rental.

Happens a lot here with water towers,  there's a real desire to convert them,  and in the part of the country there are some great examples.

That was is expensive for sure,  the Martello tower is also available at £49 a night starting price.

Now that is much more reasonable than the tower house.

Yeah, I guess I was thinking light (groceries, luggage) and not necessarily furniture and heavy appliances.  No doubt that is why they installed a lift.

As its a business it would probably be a requirement for disabled access.
