Historic UK sea fort to go under the hammer


Lambert Smith Hampton is offering Horse Sands Fort for auction at a guide price of GBP875,000, on behalf of owner Clarenco.

Lambert Smith Napton believes the 73m diameter armour plated fort, which is situated just off the Portsmouth coast, represents a unique residential or tourism development opportunity.
Despite being listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, planning permission for conversion to 14 luxury apartments was secured in 2004.
The auction takes place at 11am on 11 October.
Oliver Childs, national head of auctions at LSH says: “Over the years we have sold nuclear bunkers, telecommunications masts, former reservoirs, beaches and airfields to name but a few. Unique assets such as this appeal to buyers with creative vision and we are expecting worldwide interest.”
Steve Leahy, property director at Clarenco, says: “The success of our development of No Man’s Fort and Spitbank Fort in the Solent demonstrates the potential of this unique opportunity for an entrepreneurial high net worth investor or developer to create their own vision.”
