The House in the Clouds, near Thorpeness
The House in the Clouds was built in 1923 as the Thorpeness water tower, disguised as a house to avoid it being an eyesore. Originally it was a five storey house underneath the water tank, which itself was hidden by enclosing it in a house-like structure complete with pitched roof. Later, when Thorpeness was linked to a mains water supply, the tank inside was dismantled and the space turned into additional living accommodation making the house you see today.
