The fabulous eight-storey home offers the opportunity for a lucky purchaser to live in a unique property within easy commuting distance of central London. In fact, according to a previous occupant, on a clear day it is even possible to read the time on Big Ben’s tower with a pair of binoculars.
Mesmeric photos show the imposing exterior of the lovingly restored tower, built in 1896; the spell-binding views from the tower’s impressive observatory deck; and the ultra-modern stainless steel-clad pavilion at the base of the tower.
