The Old Tower, Benington, Herts

The Old Tower is a unique restored water tower which is now a much-updated family home with a difference. The building is Victorian ? of brick construction – and stands in its own grounds of lawned terraces and woodland.

Inside, the accommodation is light and airy and there are colour-washed brick walls, heavy exposed beams and original porthole windows.

The property boasts a reception hall, cloakroom, kitchen, breakfast room, dining room, wine room, and a drawing room, as well as four bedrooms, two en-suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. Outside there is a folly and a summerhouse in the gardens, which amount to just under an acre.


The Tower is situated within the village of Benington, a traditional and much sought-after village in Hertfordshire. Stevenage is 5 miles away, and Hertford 9 miles for more extensive amenities.

The property is also situated between Luton and Stansted (around 20 miles away from either) and trains to London Kings Cross from Stevenage take under half an hour.

This property is something a bit out of the ordinary: not just an historic building but also an extremely comfortable living space. The guide price for the Old Tower is £1,250,000.
