This $2.3 Million Countryside Estate Used to be a 1930s Water Treatment Plant

Aug 26, 2015  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Normally talk of manors in the English countryside leave us dreaming of 18th century buildings, white picket fences and rose gardens worthy of having a proper tea party. This Kent mansion, however, is not that kind of house—it’s so much cooler than that.

Aug 25, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

As an example of something that probably looks much scarier than it actually is, London’s Nine Elms neighborhood will soon have a glass-bottomed Sky Pool that will sit 10 stories off the ground, stretched between two luxury Embassy Gardens residential buildings. Though the structures—which are being built near Battersea Power Station—won’t be finished until 2017, we know that the stunning aquarium-like pool will be 25 meters long (around 82 feet), five meters wide (16 feet) and three meters deep (which is nearly ten feet). It goes without saying, but this pool definitely isn’t for anyone who is afraid of heights!

In fact, the description and images are simply copied from the 2012 ad.

Jeff “The Dude” Bridges has moved on from his Montecito, CA estate, making the $29.5 million home available for a new owner. Not only is it pretty rare to find a property of this size (the lot spans 19.5 acres) in the area, Bridges and his wife Susan bought the house from musician Kenny Loggins way back in 1994 and raised their three daughters there—meaning that those walls have a lot of cool stories to tell.
