IF YOU have a few million pound to spare, the iconic Golden Hill Fort could be yours.

Described as a portfolio-investment of 14 high-spec, luxurious terraced houses, by agents Spence Willard, the guide price is £2,350,000.

Golden Hill Fort comprises a total of 18 houses, but four have been sold off on 999 year leases. The remainder are up for sale, along with the freehold of the whole property.

The fort was built as part of the Palmerston defences by the 1859 Royal Commission on the Defence of the United Kingdom in order to provide troops to man the defences in the West Wight.

It accommodated eight officers and 128 men and had its own hospital.

The Grade 1 Listed fort was derelict for many years before planning consent was granted in 2003 for conversion to residential use.

The houses are fitted with designer fixtures and fittings, electronic entry systems, mood lighting and quality heating systems.

The Fort is enclosed by Golden Hill Country Park, owned by the IW Council and managed by Gift To Nature Trust, which has a network of rural footpaths.

Duncan Willard, director of Spence Willard Chartered Surveyors, Valuers and Estate Agents, said: "Rarely do such exciting opportunities like this present themselves, and a purchase of the majority of this truly magnificent Grade 1 Listed structure is a one off."

Spence Willard have handled the sale of other high profile properties, including the 2016 sale of the Norris Castle Estate.
