The new owners of the landmark water tower house near Pacific Coast Highway opened it to free public tours Saturday as they offer it as a vacation rental.

Though the home at 1 Anderson St. is popularly known as the Sunset Beach water tower, it actually is in Seal Beach.

A pair of investors bought the four-bedroom, 2,800-square-foot home in August for $1.5 million.

The tri-level house, built in 1984, replicates the look of a water tower that was built in the late 1800s and replaced in the 1940s.

The landmark water tower house stands 87 feet tall and provides 360-degree views. Its new owners are offering it as a vacation rental.

The 87-foot-tall structure features a wrap-around deck with 360-degree views, two garages, an elevator, 3 1/2 bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, a bar, a laundry room, a large fish tank and a stained-glass ceiling on the top floor.

The home, billed on the vacation-rental site vrbo.com as “the world’s ultimate beach house,” is listed for an average of $643 per night for a minimum stay of three or four nights.
