Orange County Water Tower House hits the $ 5 million market

Iconic Seal Beach Water Tower (Compass)

One of Orange County’s most unusual homes hits the market.

Seal Beach’s iconic water tower is asking for just under $ 5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The property was last sold in 2016 for $ 1.5 million.

The 1 Anderson water tower itself was erected in the 1940s by the Santa Fe Tank & Pipe Company, but by the 1980s it had fallen into disrepair and was threatened with demolition.

A group of locals mounted a campaign to save the horror covered in graffiti in the 1980s and Long Beach City College professor George Armstrong stepped in and bought the property, then converted the 75,000 gallon tank into a four-story house.

The current owners are investors Scott Ostlund and Barret Woods, who bought it in 2016. They remodeled the place again, opened it up for public tours and rented it out for $ 1,000 a night.

The tank transformed into a house totals 2,800 square feet. It is just a few blocks from the beach and offers stunning views of the Pacific from decks and large windows.

The uppermost floor is a rotunda and lounge with wrap-around windows, a bar and a built-in aquarium. Lower floors include the kitchen, a pirate-themed bedroom, and the owner’s suite.

The ground floor has a garage for two cars, a storage room, a bedroom and a terrace with a hot tub. The house is accessible by an elevator and a spiral staircase.

Ostlund, a business broker for Lee & Associates in Ontario, has the list.
