Step inside the luxury homes built inside a Neston water tower - due to go under the hammer later this month.

The plush pads have been installed inside a converted water tower, which was originally designed for Liverpool wine merchant Christopher Bushell in 1884.

Now set in private gardens and overlooking open countryside, the tower was originally built to supply water to Neston which was pumped from a well. The building has been extended and also contains a lift.

The water tower has stood in Neston since 1884

Many of the rooms in the unusual home are semi circular in shape with a number of internal walls having exposed sandstone, but auctioneers Smith and Sons who are selling the property say there is 'potential for further extension if required'.

Architect Alfred Waterhouse, who designed the tower, was born in Liverpool in 1830 before learning his trade in Manchester and later opening a practice in London.

The tower is one of 43 lots being sold on September 21 at the Village Hotel, Bromborough.
