Detached House, DN36 4HE

Property Description

Offering the buyer a unique opportunity to purchase a piece of British Naval history with panoramic sea views and only sea birds and boats for neighbours. The post was built sometime between 1915 and 1918 to protect Britain’s east coast from the Germans during WWI and one of two such defensive structures at the Humber Estuary. It was also manned during WWII. The army left in 1956, with the fort still manned until the early 1960s. It cost an estimated £1.5 million to build, with around 40,000 tons of concrete and steel used in the construction. Haile Sands Fort is utilitarian in design, a circular tower on hexagonal base with a balcony at sea level along with a timber and steel jetty. The fort sits in a stunning location with coastal, sea and sunset views. This historic fort building now requires a complete overhaul if you wanted to make it habitable, naturally properties like this attracts local and national interest. Were you to turn the fort into an island hotel or air B&B style residence then there would be a great deal of interest from likely guests and visitors. For buyers inspiration as to future use you only have a look at the astounding achievement that has been made with similar offshore properties like Spitbank Fort in the Solent or the long term proposed plans for the The Maunsell fort in the Thames Estuary off the Kent coast. Alternatively every English man and woman’s home is his or hers castle and on this occasion it truly could be

Guide Prices & Reserve Prices

Guide Price

An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price

The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.

Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
