A water tower was built in 1923. It stored 50,000 gallons of water pumped from a local well ready to distribute water around the local area. The original water tower was an ugly structure so the architects had the magnificent idea of making it look like a cottage on top of a 70 foot tower. There are five bedrooms and three bathrooms plus the amazing ‘room at the top’ which used to house the large water tank. From there, you can relax in a charming English cottage while enjoying a view that expands for miles. The “House in the Clouds” is fully functional with all the mod cons and is set in one acre of private property where you can enjoy traditional English pursuits like croquet and lawn tennis. The local Thorpeness Village was built from scratch in the 1920s as the ‘perfect holiday village’ a title that remains to this day.
