A retired couple has turned a discarded industrial water tank into a luxurious three-story home in an incredible transformation of real estate.

The construction from the 1930s originally provided the water supply to the town of Gympie in Queensland, but now has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a swimming pool and a kitchen chimney.

The space of 964 square meters, easily by the developers & # 39; The Reservoir & # 39; mentioned, after the three-year makeover, still has the original curved concrete walls of the tank and tribute to the history of the city.

The front door was made from an old phonebox, while traditional bicycles hang on the wall to give the house more character.

Century 21 agent Billy Mitchell told Daily Mail Australia that the rustic feel in the property was unique and an absolute selling point for the upcoming auction.

& # 39; It has a very industrial appearance. The walls on the inside of the second floor are all tanks, & he said.

But although the gray exterior may seem brutalist, it fits harmoniously into the more modern equipment and quirky design of the house.

The property on 1A Pilcher Lane is not only the home of the welcoming saltwater swimming pool, but also has a basement that can be adapted to the needs of the owner.

The mention on the site indicates that the lower floor can be used for a workshop, wine cellar, fitness room, garage or even a theater hall.

The fully transformed property also has a picturesque view of nearby Cooroora Mountain – which lies between Gympie and the Sunshine Coast.

Mr. Mitchell said that the panoramic views of the offer at the previously inconspicuous location were what inspired Ray and Bev Meads to redefine it.

& # 39; They passed when it was just a tank and admired the location. They are seasoned interior decorators and are really enthusiastic about the project, & he said.
