Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Fort Richmond is a historic former coastal defence fort, available for sale for the first time since its construction some 160 years ago, and offered on Guernsey's Open Market with the benefit of full planning permission to create a single residential dwelling of circa 5000 sqft. Guernsey's attractive tax benefits will be available to new purchaser on becoming resident.

This iconic local landmark ranks amongst only a handful with such a rich history. It offers an exciting opportunity for a new owner to shape the next chapter in the ongoing story that is Fort Richmond.

The expansive and tranquil setting amounting to some 2 acres (8,000m2) will provide the buyer with many of the attributes that define island living, from the dramatic coastal views to the peace and serenity that come with such a private location.

Fort Richmond is a haven away from commercial activity, located between the important conservation area of Lihou Island to the west, with its abundance of bird and marine life, and the wide, sandy Vazon Bay to the east. Transforming this property into one of the island's most fabulous homes is likely to be a challenging project, yet will doubtlessly be extremely rewarding.
