Impressive Bailey Water Tower

If quirkiness and true individuality are the most important things you look for in a home then Savills have the perfect property. The Bailey Water Tower is a really unusual property on West Hill Road, Luton and is guaranteed to make your heart skip a beat. There is no other way to say it – this is an imposing and impressive building that is the closest you will get to your Englishman’s castle without setting up home at Balmoral. The Grade II listed property has been transformed into an attractive modern home, with a spectacular quality of finish and masses of style throughout. The care and attention paid to the iconic building is impressive and the conversion has been carried out incredibly carefully to ensure this is a practical yet highly unusual home. Designed by Henry T Hare in the arts and crafts style the building was constructed in 1900 to supply water in Stopsley Park. It was decommissioned in 1960 and is now a wonderful residential property.
