File this under incredible homes in unexpected places: over in the small English town of Hertford, a historic Victorian water tower has been transformed into a whimsical three-bedroom dwelling. Sitting on its own roomy, gated lot, the landmark property is perhaps even more fun than souped-up yurts and converted grain silos—brokerbabble calls this a "unique opportunity for a lifestyle move." Behind the forest-green arched doorway is an airy three-floor abode, which can be navigated via a central American Oak spiral staircase. The interior is just as cheerfully colored as the exterior, with seafoam-green making a splash in the dining area, lavender in a bedroom, and Tiffany blue in a bathroom. The ask? £795,000 (~$1,180,000).
