Water Works Conversion
When you think about water treatment plants, you don't think of beauty, and yet this stunning and highly original Grade II listed conversion actually started its life as a water softening facility.

Now a spacious and contemporary home, The Lime Works was built in the early 1930s. The current owners acquired the property in 2005, and have sympathetically converted, restored and refurbished the building, with the emphasis on attention to detail and specification.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors connected by spiral staircases and the rooms are light and spacious. The dining room has a triple height roof void, there's a gym suite (with sauna and plunge pool) and an integral cinema room. In all the property has five reception rooms and six bedrooms including a sumptuous master suite which occupies the entire top floor. The beds and baths are crafted out of concrete and are unique and imaginative features.

There are two roof terraces from which to enjoy the far reaching views, one of which accommodates the pool.

The Lime Works is set in eight acres of land and is approached via electric wrought iron gates which open to a gravel driveway that leads to a large parking area and underground double garage of circa 331 sqft. A useful storage building of circa 1,257 sq ft lies to the side of the main house and could be suitable for a range of alternative uses.

A wonderful example of what an unremarkable building can become.
