Imagine walking through a quiet, green village in Suffolk, England. Near the river. The white mill is spinning. Private houses are surrounded by neat gardens … Beauty, tranquility, tranquility. You look up and see a house above the tops of the tallest trees.
"What nonsense?" - you ask yourself, rub your eyes, pinch your hand, and then decide that you are crazy. Don't jump to conclusions. The "house in the clouds" really exists. And he has a very interesting story.
It was built 85 years ago. Then the village was very spoiled by the water tower. Well, if you have ever been to summer cottage villages in the Moscow region, then you understand what I mean - such a big ugly thing on a disproportionately thin support, devoid of any grace and beauty. 85 years ago in England, they probably looked a little different and were made of a different material, but they still did not differ in beauty. The view of the water pump spoiled the beautiful village very much. And the architects were asked to somehow improve this defect. They came up with such a funny "high-rise building", similar to an ordinary one-story or two-story private house. Of course, large-scale construction of settlements from such buildings is unlikely to be justified, however, as practice shows, it is very profitable to have such an attraction in a single copy in your village.
In 1979, the need for a water tower disappeared, but, of course, no one began to demolish this small on a planetary scale, but a huge miracle for the village. The tower was restored, the insides were redrawn several times, for some time its fate could not be determined; eventually, the House in the Clouds gained five bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a very nice interior decoration, and now you can rent a room there for a couple of days or a week and enjoy at the same time the delight of living in a small house and the height. This building (well, well, its owners) has its own website - www.houseintheclouds.co.uk, where you can book a room if you are going to England. And look at the photos from the inside, but this is not for the faint of heart. I immediately wanted to give up on everything, sell the property and go there for a week. Beware!
