Looking for a fixer-upper to convert into an investment property? What about your own private fortress? How about saving a piece of history before it falls into disrepair? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and you have six-figures burning a hole in your pocket, you should definitely buy this offshore Trefoil-plan Gun Tower. Originally built in 1851 in order to protect the Royal Dockyard of Pembroke Dock, the North East Dockyard Tower includes “accommodations” for 34 men (including one officer with private quarters), 3x 32 lbs howitzers (not included), one 12500 gallon water tank and 198,100 lbs of gun powder (also not included). None of the guns were ever fired and the tower would ultimately be disarmed around 1882. The views are still breathtaking and it was built in such a way that allowed it to remain standing through stints as a store and eventually a museum. John Francis Estate Agents are currently accepting offers over $87,000 US, but you would also be responsible for leasing the walkway, all repairs / maintenance, and the cost of the drawbridge you’re going to have installed. Owning a supercar is cool and everything, but wouldn’t you rather live in your own private fortress?
