Located in the Kennington district of central London, this incredible 4,483-square-foot conversion boasts five bedrooms, four baths, two living rooms and an eat-in, contemporary designed kitchen.

The tower has an extension, nicknamed “The Cube,” which houses the kitchen and living room, as well as roof space for a fabulous terrace with skyline views of downtown London.

Originally built in 1877, the Venetian Gothic-style water tower was converted by architect Mike Collier of ACR Architects, a London-based firm that specializes in residential refurbishments.
