Jay Wainwright, manager at Bradleys Countrywide Limited which is marketing the tower, said: “We have dealt with the Benfleet Water Tower for many years, and we are delighted that the vendors have chosen Bradleys Countrywide as their agents to market this unique property.

“This is one of the most well-known and recognised buildings within the Castle Point area and offers a purchaser the chance to own a unique and prestigious building with such history.

“The property produces a substantial rental income from office tenants on the ground, first and second floors and Global Blu-chip communication companies via the roof top. 

“The penthouse apartment has a surprisingly spacious feel, and the views are as far reaching as Tower Bridge.

“Perhaps the best asset to the 90-foot-tall building is the lift.”

As you enter the penthouse apartment on the fourth floor, you are led into the kitchen and diner, which has oak fitted units, and built-in appliances.

The living room is also located on the fourth floor.

As you head up the spiral staircase to the fifth floor, you will find a master bedroom suite, dressing room, a second bedroom, and a family bathroom.

On the sixth and final floor is a third bedrooms, alongside a study which could also be used as a bedroom.

The property has two parking spaces at the front and four spaces to the rear, but there is room for additional parking.

Outside of the property, is a garden in the rear side which has beautifully laid grass and trees for privacy.
