About the Area Tattingstone is situated approximately four miles to the south of the county town of Ipswich offering amenities, schooling and railway station. The village offers a primary school, church, public house and is conveniently located for excellent sailing facilities including Woolverstone Marina and the nearby Alton Water Reservoir. There is a mainline railway station to London's Liverpool Street approximately six miles away in the town of Manningtree, a journey time of approximately sixty-five minutes. 

Directions Leave the A14 at junction 56 and follow the A137 away from Ipswich towards Manningtree and left signposted Tattingstone. Follow the road onto Lemon's Hill, over the Alton Water Bridge and Samford Court will be found almost immediately on the right hand side identified by double black wrought iron gates. Continue through these gates and the property is almost immediately on the left hand side. 

Vendor´s Statement "I've lived at The Tower since 2000 when it was converted from a working water tower serving the old hospital. This home is built around the original steel frame which determines its unusual room shapes and floor levels resulting in an altogether quirky building with immense character.

The changing seasonal view from the tower room over Alton Water is stunning. To make the most of the space over the years I've used it as a cinema room, bedroom, chill-out room and now a space for me to work.

The Tower will suit anyone who loves the outdoors giving access to the lakeside some 200 metres away. You can walk or cycle around the 13km track and enjoy the bird life at close quarters. For the more active members of the family you can hire a dingy or kayak from Alton Water Sailing Club and enjoy the water too. If you have your own craft then the Samford Court boat park is the perfect place to keep it safe.

With Manningtree Station only one hour from London Liverpool Street it allows me to work in London but live in this idyllic Suffolk location. Coming home to The Tower across Lemon's Hill Bridge reminds me of holidays. It's that feel that drew me to The Tower and fall in love with it. So much so that I bought it without ever seeing the plans!

The Tower is a wonderful property and given some thought and imagination could adapt again to become an even more unique waterside home."
