Envision this historic structure as a possible studio, office, hangout, bar, man cave, she-shed, or whatever you want it to be. It could be for your home or business. Hailing back to the heyday of Southern California's orange and citrus groves, this steel tank-like structure was once used as an orchard heating fuel tank (to keep the fruit from freezing), then later as a water tank. It measures approximately 17' 2" in diameter, with a maximum height at the middle approximately 11' 4". Height at the shorter part inside near the edges is about 9' 9". The metal is not extremely thick: it measures approximatey 1/4 to 1/8 inch. The structure has some holes--maybe gun target holes--some of which were patched with some sort of tar many years ago. The opening for the door or entrance is about 7' 8" wide. The round riveted disc seen in one of the images measures about 2 feet acoss. We think it is steel; it is definitely some kind of sturdy metal. The floor of the tank is also metal.
Own an authentic and unique piece of history; a building that is part of Southern California's rich agricultural roots. No need to add a faux finish: this is the real deal!
Buyer will need to make arrangements to move this structure sometime between early November and late December. It sits on a historic lot near Claremont, CA, which has been sold.
