How about a church, silo, water tower, or pumping station?
We’ve seen an increasing trend recently of repurposed homes–buildings that began their lives as something other than residences. MSN Real Estate has a great slideshow of a few recent, unique homes that have made the transformation.
With stiff compeition from the cloister, water tower, hospital, chapel, church, pumping station, industrial silo, and barn, this repurposed water-treatment plant takes the top prize for most unique renovation:
The British property started as a 1930s water-treatment plant, which fell into disrepair and was closed in 1942. It sat empty for years, until its new owners spotted it and undertook a dramatic renovation that set them back several million dollars.
It now boasts a rooftop pool and three-story dining room (and hit the market last year for just under $4,000,000).
Don’t be afraid to go bold with a unique building!
