The property is in the village of Benington near Stevenage

The Old Tower in the village of Benington near Stevenage was built in the Victorian era as the water tower for a private estate. Today it is a showpiece five-storey residence, having been converted with great artistry to create a home unlike any other.

At ground level is a dining room opening out to a glorious mature garden. There’s a wine room with original stone floor, a designer kitchen, conservatory and a circular staircase that winds up to the spectacular roof terrace with views from among the tree tops.

The four bedrooms are each on a separate floor – three have en-suite bathrooms. A drawing room with minstrel gallery and master suite with balcony overlooking the three quarters of an acre garden are on the first floor.

This architectural gem has been the owners’ passion for more than 30 years. They’re now looking for a kindred spirit to love it.

The Old Tower is for sale for £1.5m through Savills, 01279 756800.
