A landmark building with planning permission for residential conversion.
A unique opportunity to acquire a former water tower with planning consent to convert to residential use set within the village of High Garrett, some 3 miles north of Braintree. This 'Grand Designs' project will provide accommodation over three levels of approximately 320 sq m (3,444 sq ft), with the option to create an additional level within the original structure. The design of the water tower is consistent with towers of this period yet each one delivers its own artistic, architectural, historical and engineering significance. The approved accommodation provides four bedrooms with individual en suite facilities, arranged over the ground and first floor. The second floor will offer the principle reception space of open plan design with a private terrace. To the upper level, within the tank structure, will be the kitchen/family area with utility room and an imaginative designed mezzanine.
The planning permission was approved by Braintree District Council in August 2022 under application22/02126/FUL. Further details and conditions relating to the scheme can be found by accessing Braintree District Council's planning website.
The building is accessed from Lyons Hall Road, over a private gated drive. The building sides on to its eastern boundary with the proposed garden located to the north and eastern aspects with parking to the front. The site, excluding the drive, measures approximately 13.7 x 22.4 m. All in about 0.092 of an acre.
