Lymm Water Tower

Lymm Water Tower is the award-winning renovation of a once derelict Grade II Listed water tower into a luxurious contemporary family home. The octagonal stone water tower is complemented by a new modernist wrap-around, double-height extension. This highly glazed addition offers carefully selected vistas across the adjacent fields and considers the existing mature trees surrounding the site.

The internal changes in level delineate the roles of the various spaces, offering style and function. Each habitable space is carefully orientated to experience the changing quality of natural light as the sun tracks daily from one side of the tower to the other. The vast panels of low-energy structural glass within the façade allow these spaces a sensory contact with nature and the seasons.

The aim throughout was to blend contemporary design with the building’s traditional features, resulting in simple, powerful detailing. Minimalist perfection: uncluttered, super-sleek, contemporary living, complete with 5 generous sized double bedrooms, including a double-height master bedroom with mezzanine bathroom. The 3 en-suites and one family bathroom are all contemporary, with deep baths and best rain shower head. Two open-plan reception rooms, a dinning room and a stunning kitchen, complete the ground floor. The tower roof garden, 110 feet above ground level, is accessed via the original stone staircase and offers spectacular views across the Cheshire countryside and beyond.
