Designed by Ellis Williams Architects, the award-winning Lymm Water Tower House artfully combines the old and the new in its breathtaking stone envelope. The basis for this opulent design – a 130-year-old water tower – rises five stories above Cheshire, England’s countryside, and offers 360-degree views of the world beyond its multitude of floor-to-ceiling windows. Take your pick from a number of luxurious living spaces, or step out into the serenity of the sixth-floor rooftop garden, complete with a hot tub, sound system, a seating area and ambient lighting. The double-height master bedroom with a mezzanine bathroom is the piece de resistance. Ellis Williams Architects.
