    I don't think it was. The converted water tower was in Central London.

    GD have done three water towers. One was definitely London, one was quite low (and in the south) and the other didn't go right up into the top. I may have missed an episode, but this is not one I've seen.

    I like it, but as with so many my first thought is "how do you heat it?" and my second, "Will it feel 'cozy' on a bleak winter's evening?"

    I think that's a steal for the price. Would buy.

    If you can afford £1.85m to buy a home, you can afford to heat it

    If it was me I would have a system in place to drain the pool and pump the water through a sprinkler system in the kitchen in the event of a fire.

    Oh and would buy, obviously!

    Mate of mine lives in St. Albans, nice little place and only 20 minutes on a train away from the hustle and bustle of London
