Full description

Price Range: 500,000 - 750,000.
This is a totally unique opportunity to acquire a spectacular and unique luxury home set within a historic and remarkable Grade I listed former Victorian Fortress known as Golden Hill Fort.
Every detail has been thought of to blend the historic fabric of the building with breath-taking 21st century modern design, luxury and comfort.
Entering this former ammunition store you cannot fail to be impressed by the light airy space of the massive 6m x 10.5m lounge with its unique feature exposed brick barrel vault ceiling which was originally built to withstand any potential blast - it can now be flooded with coloured light, controlled through the spectrum via a mood lighting control system which provides an effect with all the lighting, which is only limited by your imagination.
Walk through one of the 3' walls and you find yourself in a cavernous kitchen with a 13' high ceiling and a huge range of base and wall units finished in Gloss Ivory and appointed to a very high standard with all appliances supplied. Through another 3' wall, you access the utility and study, with doors opening out into the moat area..
From the kitchen is the Oak staircase with bespoke glass balustrade affording a stunning glimpse of the exposed brick barrel vault ceilings to the first floor where you will find 4 double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms each with a pressurised shower over the bath with screen. Heating and hot water are supplied via a gas fired Vaillant boiler and pressurised system with a quick recovery tank ensuring a constant supply of hot water for all. One of the bedrooms accesses your own private section of balcony overlooking the Courtyard and fountain - perfect for those pre-dinner drinks on a Summers evening.
On the roof there is in excess 550m of communal landscaped roof gardens for your quiet enjoyment affording 360 views across the Solent, English Channel and rolling Countryside - probably the best views from anywhere on the Island. Why not take advantage of one of the Barbeque points for a perfect evening out!.
If all this is not enough, the property is just moments from Yarmouth with its mainland ferry links, marina, shops and restaurants. It is an ideal base to enjoy the multitude of attractions the island has to offer and as you would expect from a former fortress it is very secure with its 3' thick walls, double gated entry system, CCTV and Alarms! Requiring minimal maintenance on the part of the owner this is perfect as a secure residence or a second home which is safe to lock up and leave.
Descriptions and photos alone really do not give you the sense of scale or grandeur or do the property the justice it deserves - A personal viewing is a must!
