A striking ivy-covered former water tower that has been converted into a quirky home - now on the market for £1.5m - is the perfect property for any budding Rapunzel.<br />
<br />
The fairytale-style property is about 60ft high and has commanding 360-degree views over its own grounds and beyond to the surrounding paddocks and farmland.<br />
<br />
The five-storey Victorian home even has a castellated roof terrace, perfect for enjoying the sylvan setting in the picturesque village of Benington, Herts.<br />
<br />
The water tower was built in 1890 to supply water to the private Benington estate, but was eventually left derelict by the 1950s and was converted in the 1970s by previous owners.
