House In The Clouds – Suffolk England

    Well this is definitely a strange house that  has been turned into a country rental but it wasn’t always a home.

    In 1923 the Thorpeness Estates needed to build a 50,000 gallon water tower but instead of just putting up the standard tower they decided to build a home around it.

    The cottage that sits at top was originally the home of the water tank however in the area below there was living space.

    During WW2 the tank was hit by a gunner trying to down a german v1 flying bomb and as you can guess …. yes there were people living in it at the time..

    Since then the property has been sold and the tank removed from service.

    If you would like to stay in the home for a Holiday please visit:
