The Bailey Water Tower is one of the area's most eminent Grade II listed properties and has been newly converted into a most spectacular home with great care and attention given to the many features of this iconic building.

The property was originally constructed in 1900 in a bold Arts and Crafts design by Henry T Hare. It was build to supply water to Stopsley Park after the drought in 1898, but was then decommissioned in 1960.


The Bailey Water Tower has been carefully converted into a truly unique property with the accommodation set over 6 principal floors, plus a further mezzanine level over the master bedroom. The property provides some of the most up to date and cutting edge technology which complements the high quality and most luxurious fixtures and fittings. The stylish contemporary interior blends beautifully with the magnificence of this most historic building.

As you walk through the impressive solid oak arch front doors and into the kitchen/living room, you immediately appreciate the impressive proportioned rooms which make up this unique property. The kitchen aspect of the ground floor living area is fitted with extensive range of modern units and includes many Siemens stainless steel appliances. Ample space is provided for a large table and seating arrangement and a door leads through to a rear lobby where an oak staircase rises to the first floor where an incredibly impressive 'dome' shaped living room can be found.

The first floor sitting room is a room to behold. An impressive domed ceiling covers the whole floor. Sections of the flooring have been glazed to create a sense of depth to the building. These can also be found on the very top mezzanine floor.

On the second floor, a fantastic high tech cinema can be found (see specification). There is a separate shower room in the event that one would want to use the cinema as a gymnasium.

On the third floor, there are 2 spacious double guest bedrooms both boasting modern en-suite bathrooms.

The fourth floor features a principal bedroom, which features large picture windows and balconies. From this room, the incredible views over the county can really be appreciated. The bedroom also features a stunning en-suite bath and shower room which is enclosed by crafted oak joinery and attractive opaque glass panels.

The master bedroom suite can be found on the top floor. The room features an impressive vaulted ceiling and like bedroom two, features a fabulous en-suite bath and shower room which is enclosed by oak joinery and further opaque glass panelling. From within the room a staircase rises to a mezzanine floor (level 7) which makes for a peaceful reading/home office space. Once again, outstanding views can be enjoyed.

Throughout the tower, connecting all floors, is a new lift system and main stairs. In addition, the original stone staircase runs throughout the tower and has been installed with 'funky' LED lighting.
