The history of this water-tower-turned-house is a strange one. First, it was indeed a water tower to begin with – just one that was built to look like a house in the sky to provide the locals with, well, something more interesting to look at. It became an architectural staple – a structural oddity that persisted over time.

Over time, however, its usefulness as an actual water tower came to an end – but the locals were never at a loss as to what to do with this strange architectural curiosity. Indeed, it was bought and converted into a real house – outfitted with windows, stairs and everything else to provide the new home owner with what has to be one of the best views for miles around.
