What was once a windmill, then a water tower, is now a home (Picture: OnTheMarket)
Here’s a dreamy property opportunity for anyone keen to escape to the country.
Dating back to 1770, it was originally a windmill, then converted into a water tower in the 19th century.
Then, in 1973, it was turned into a home, making the most of its origins by pairing luxury details with the property’s quirks kept in tact.
Stood in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, it has great views of the surrounding countryside, and can be seen from miles around (it’s pretty tall and eye-catching).
Now, the home is on sale for £1,400,000, marketed by Fine & Country, Leamington-Spa, via OnTheMarket.
The current owner bought the property while they were living just down the road, where they could see the local landmark from their window.
They moved in and gave it a major renovation.

The resulting interiors are glorious. On the ground floor is a unique, bespoke round kitchen, complete with a central breakfast bar backdropped by a feature glass wall and exposed brickwork.
Also on this level is a study or home office, plus a large living and dining area, with access to the outdoor patio.
Head up to the first floor and you’ll find the main bedroom. This has its own en suite plus a private sun terrace with stunning views across Kenilworth.
On the second and fourth floors are two more double-bedrooms, and sandwiched between them on the third floor is a family bathroom, with an elevated freestanding bathtub. Blissful.

The bedroom at the very top of the tower, on the fifth floor, has the best views of all, especially from the balcony.
In terms of outdoor space, you’d have landscaped gardens, plus easy access to trails around Kenilworth Common and Abbey Fields.
Helen Whiteley, Director at OnTheMarket.com says: ‘This iconic property delivers on all the elements of many buyers’ wish lists, a rich history, peaceful location, generous outdoor space, and modern interior.
‘The statement kitchen and immaculate neutral décor offer the next buyer the ability to ‘move in and go’, which is rare in period and character properties, and will no doubt ensure it generates a lot of interest.’

Annabelle Williams, spokesperson for Fine & Country, Leamington-Spa, adds: ‘This home really does stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
‘As well as playing a significant part in Kenilworth’s local history, it now has all the features you would need to enjoy comfortable family living in a modern environment.
‘Set in almost a third-of-an-acre plot, it’s impressive views, size, and outdoor space which comes with enough parking to fit up to six cars which isn’t commonly found locally, this property has the makings to be an enviable home for the next owner.’
