"...Fond of a Folly"

We are delighted to see that one of our for sale properties has been mentioned in The Times recently.

The Water House, located in Steyning, West Sussex, is an enchanting and totally unique Grade II listed property located in a stunning, peaceful, rural setting close to the South Downs. This very unusual and striking octagonal tower was designed by Maxwell Ayrton, the architect who designed the original Twin Towers at Wembley Stadium, and is constructed of reinforced concrete with an external 'helter skelter' staircase and a polygonal roof. It was constructed as an ornamental folly/water tower, with an observatory, in about 1930 for Sir Arthur Howard as part of the Wappingthorn Estate.

The unusual and characterful property has been mentioned in an article in The Times which talks about the eccentricity of follies and what you can get for your money if you fancy purchasing a property with a unique touch.
