The building, which is grade II-listed, was built in the early 1930s and was a functioning water softening plant until 1942. The current owners acquired the property in 2005, converting it into the house you see now.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: rgb(75, 80, 84); font-family: Georgia; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;"><span style="color:#666666;"><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/pnmx815.jpg" style="width: 705px; height: 715px; float: left;" /></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: rgb(75, 80, 84); font-family: Georgia; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;">&nbsp;</p> <hr /> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; padding: 0px; color: rgb(75, 80, 84); font-family: Georgia; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;"><span style="color: rgb(75, 80, 84); font-family: Georgia; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;">According to the agent, the owners have &lsquo;sympathetically converted, restored and refurbished the building&rsquo;, with the emphasis on &lsquo;attention to detail and specification&rsquo;.
