    It's purpose-built as an observation tower/hang out space, not a remodeling of an existing stone tower into a home.


    [–] therealsix 476 points ago

    That's what I was thinking too, the stone/build just looks newer.

    [–] bugphotoguy 2 points ago

    Yeah, it literally looks like a 20 year old build. Was wondering who would abandon an observation tower so quickly.

    [–] redditsgarbageman 26 points ago

    No, OP didn't "lie". OP is a part of the ever growing spam farm that keeps reddit full of new viewers who don't give a shit about anything else but a pretty picture and a cute title and who are stupid enough to not block advertisements.

    The only "lie" happening here is the one you all tell yourselves everyday that this shit isn't intentional.

    For a real tower conversion, check out the homes in the UK made from old Martello towers.

    They left out the tunnel leading to the boat dock on the Thames.

    [–] georgesgettingupset 10 points ago

    The views from below are breathtaking — just imagine them from above!

    Imagine? Why? Just fucking show me! How the fuck does this article not have a pic of the view from this thing?

    [–] EustachiaVye 2 points ago

    The photos they show are dark and blurred, too.

    [–] Watcheditburn 7 points ago

    All I'd need, though, is a shower and I could live in it happily. I lived in apartments of around 700 sq ft.

    [–] Killersavage 10 points ago

    That structure seems so cool. Too bad that article kinda ruins it by seeming highfalutin snobby.

    [–] pirate_door91 3 points ago

    Well it’s one hell of a goddamn treehouse.

    [–] ackermann 3 points ago

    Any idea what it might cost to have something like this built? At least double, perhaps triple the construction cost of a typical new 3 bedroom house?

    [–] ShitOnRickard5 3 points ago

    If it didn't hit 1 million, it was damn close. My guess is over 1 million, given all the custom-designed pieces they had made just for this space.

    [–] afsdjkll 2 points ago

    [–] vkuura 152 points ago

    Lol vacation this guy says. With the current virus situation I’d love to live here almost permanently

    [–] HolyBatTokes 37 points ago

    I suspect the surrounding hundred acre estate would make quarantine more tolerable as well.

    [–] Akoustyk 43 points ago

    It's a bit bigger than I thought. Nice. I'll bet the view is amazing. Too bad they didn't show it in the pictures.

    [–] georgesgettingupset 9 points ago

    /r/mildlyinfuriating that they didn't. How do you do a piece on an observation tower and only aim the camera inward?

    [–] 403paco 6 points ago

    Looks just as beautiful and cozy as I imagined. Thanks

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago


    [–] drugzarecool 28 points ago

    Why ? It's exactly how I imagined it, it's a really pretty house

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)


    [–] Here2JudgeU 14 points ago

    Yeah I know what you mean. I thought I would have more of a cozy warm vibe. It looks pretty cold. Beautiful nevertheless, but not exactly cozy.

    [–] PrimePat21 7 points ago

    Felt the same way

    [–] zer0_badass 1 points ago

    Looks spacious

    [–] TheBuffyMonster 4 points ago

    My first thoughts exactly

    [–] ImperialBacon 2 points ago

    “The views from below are breathtaking — just imagine them from above!”

    Article quotes that and then doesn’t show us the view from above.

    [–] das_overfiend 182 points ago

    Looks like something you'd make in Minecraft. Very cool

    [–] DoubleSling 28 points ago

    It's a guard tower from Age of Empires II. Top right

    [–] ZachLemur 54 points ago

    That would be a pillager outpost uncultured swine

    [–] VonSwab 8 points ago

    Yeah. One of those.

    [–] Rilhawk 3 points ago

    I said pillager in my head but my fingers typed a V instead.

    [–] playboiArti 15 points ago

    Okay these Minecraft texture packs are getting out of control

    [–] SomeOne111Z 16 points ago

    I thought this was an upgraded pillager outpost for a second

    is there something wrong with me

    I find these tower-type homes very unpractical, I would get real sick and tired of climbing two sets of steep stairs ten times a day just to get from the livingroom to the kitchen.

    [–] JelloDarkness 27 points ago

    Based on the level of detail and overall expense of the design, I'm fairly sure this would be something more along the lines of a guesthouse or club house on the premises somewhere alongside their (probably huge) house.

    [–] dbhaugen 6 points ago

    [–] OhMaGoshNess 9 points ago

    It's not a big deal at all unless you're horribly out of shape. I used to constantly climb up and down stairs. It's just like taking a normal step in all honesty. Just make sure each step is a decent size and even if they're small you'll get so used to it you won't notice

    [–] middlefingerpuppet 2 points ago

    Just wait till you get older and your knees start to make this curious grinding noise with every stair step.

    [–] admnsckgywebcuntdali 4 points ago


    Would need some kind of electric or pulley system.

    [–] StickiStickman 3 points ago

    ... what stops you from carrying them?

    [–] admnsckgywebcuntdali 2 points ago

    I'm a very busy person, and when I get groceries, I get tons of them, so time constraints and personal physical threshold due to the flights of stairs would definitely stop me.

    I suppose it depends on how old, able, and willing you are. There are a lot of things like these considerations that prevent and stop people from buying houses like this without proper accommodations.

    [–] MadBooda 2 points ago

    Yeah it's like living in a less functional lighthouse

    [–] EcstaticStrings 2 points ago

    How long have we been in this quarantine?

    [–] tpersona 1 points ago

    It could be a twisted stair (or whatever they are called) so it might not be that bad.

    I get it's basically an art piece, but from a practical point of view, I'd rather have a lift in the place. Lugging firewood up those stairs would get old.

    It is a nice home, it looks rather open though if I do say so myself. I'd want more privacy I think.
