'Simply stunning:' Amazing Spaces viewers are left in awe by a 1930s water tower transformed into a six-bedroom home with 360 degree views from the rooftop terrace (and it could be yours for £1.5M)

A 1930s water tower which underwent renovation in 2016 to create a luxurious family home has left viewers of Channel 4's 'Amazing Spaces' in awe.  
TV architect George Clarke explored the 23 metre-high construction in Warwickshire, which boasts 7,500 sq ft of luxury living space over five floors, including six bedrooms, five bathrooms and three reception rooms. 
The high-end home, which took eighteen months to transform, also features a games room, en suite bathrooms, open-plan kitchen and perhaps most impressive of all - an AstroTurfed roof terrace which offers views of the Warwickshire countryside. 
And viewers took to social media to express how stunning it was with one branding it 'insane', while another added: ‘That water tower is absolutely beautiful. I love it when people turn structures like that into stunning homes.’

The 23-metre high Cromwell water tower was built in the 1930s and once contained over one million litres of water which served the people of Warwickshire for over 80 years

The AstroTurfed roof terrace which offers 360 degree views of the Warickshire countryside is used as an outdoor cinema by the current owners - and is arguably the most impressive part of the epic construction project

After taking a look around the open-plan kitchen, George noted that the owners had 'sliced into walls of structure to get tall vertical windows in'

The property has  seven and a half thousand square feet of luxury living space over five floors and boasts five bathrooms and three reception rooms. Above, just one of the six bedrooms

Adding to the value of the property, the owners restored many of its original features, including a spiral staircase running through the centre of the house.
'Moving through different spaces it’s surprise after surprise of conventional rooms which have been slotted seamlessly into the unconventional circular structure,' George explained on last night's episode.
'And there's remnants of the original building - an the incredible staircase, winding from bottom to top.'
Referring to the roof terrace, George enthused: ‘It’s absolutely massive. Brilliant. And what’s even more amazing is you get the most unbelievable 360 degree view all the way round.' 
Viewers were just as impressed with the construction project as TV architect George Clarkw was. ¿That water tower is insane,¿ wrote one, while another added: ¿that water tower is absolutely beautiful. I love it when people turn structures like that in to stunning homes'

Meanwhile, the fourth floor of the property, which was once the tank room, remains inhabitable and offers a reminder that the landmark water tower once contained over one million litres of water which served the people of Warwickshire for over 80 years. 
The water tower, which is about the same height as a seven story building, was originally bought for just £25,000 at auction in 2009, without planning permission. 
Today, the original water tank resides on the fourth floor and remains completely inhabitable, but offers a large space for potential renovation for anyone looking to buy

Describing it as something which 'has to be seen to be believed,’ architect George said: 'It’s incredible. It’s absolutely massive.'   
And viewers were excited to hear the stunning building was now up for sale – albeit for a cool £1.5 million.
‘OMG that water tower. WOW WOW WOW. Any rich men out there?’ said one, while another penned: ‘What a fabulous house on amazing spaces. Just need to look down the back of my sofa for 1.5 million.'
