The Anderson Street Water Tower rises 87 feet into the air from a 35 square foot lot just off PCH in Sunset Beach. It was built in the late 1800s to service the steam trains that ran from Los Angeles to San Diego. It was rebuilt in the 1940s with a capacity of 75,000 gallons and was used for the area’s water system until 1975. When it was in danger of being demolished in the 1980s, local architects stepped in, got permits and converted it into a 3-story, 2,800 sq. ft. home. It is now available for events and vaction rental at about $5000/week. Real estate info with interior pictures.
