In ‘Britain’s tallest house’, built on top of a water tower with 67 steps up – this is how you stay there
THIS former water tower is now Britain’s tallest house – and Brits can book a holiday in the sky.
Built in the 1920s, House in the Clouds in Thorpeness used to serve the vital role of bringing water to Suffolk.
Now vacationers can book a relaxing stay with fantastic views.
It features five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a dining room and salon, and a stunning living area at the top of the building.
But to get to the gorgeous space, which is outfitted with a pool table and a wrap-around mezzanine, guests must climb a whopping 67 steps.
It was built in 1923 to receive water pumped from the Thorpeness Windmill and was designed to enhance the appearance of the water tower by camouflaging its tank.
But in 1977 the water tower was made obsolete by a main water supply to the village and 10 years later it was converted into a dwelling.
The house was designed by children’s author Mrs Malcolm Mason, who wanted it to reflect houses in fairy tales.
At 70 feet tall, the house is considered one of the tallest in Britain.
It comes after we told you about the smallest house in Britain.
The tiny house is just 122 inches tall, 72 inches wide, and has only custom-made furniture — because that’s all that can fit through its door.
Located in Conwy, North Wales, the home attracts more than 50,000 visitors a year.
