Internal Flooring to Residential Project

The project consisted of the restoration and conversion of the 130 year old Victorian stone water tower in the village of Lymm in Cheshire into a modern and stylish family living accommodation.

Lymm water tower is a semi-rural retreat.  Once a derelict grade II listed water tower, this Multi award winning property has been renovated with a double-height glass extension and a decked out in uber-chic luxury.  The octagonal stone water tower is complemented by a new modernist wrap around double height extension.

Albion Stone supplied Portland Independent Whitbed for the bathroom floors and Portland Blue for the external thresholds.
