The Property
The Defensible Barracks in Pembroke Dock, is a Grade II* listed, Victorian-era fortification and barracks in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It is a 20-sided stone fort surrounded by a dry moat with masonry walls. A parade ground occupies the centre of the fort. It was built in the mid-1840s to house the Royal Marines. The property has so much potential and would serve equally well as a residential or commercial opportunity.

The property is partly renovated, and one side of the 'quad' is home to modern apartments. The original character and features have been retained, in what is a perfect blend of history and present. The rest of the main residence has further development potential but is currently derelict in the main. Underneath the main residence there is the basement level, with scope for development - Imagine for instance a commercial conversion with top class restaurants and bars across the basement levels.

The property sits on approx. 4.45 acres of land and some of the gardens have been landscaped to a fantastic standard. However, there is undoubtedly still a lot of work for the grounds to be brought to their potential. Within the grounds, there are further buildings with scope for development. There is planning permission on the property for a 56 bedroomed hotel and the building on the North East battlement has planning permission for a coffee shop. There has been talk of the property being turned in to a wedding venue with top class restaurants included - The potential is huge.

There is a fortified gatehouse in the middle of the north wall and the fort is surrounded by a dry moat 16 feet and 42 feet wide which was originally crossed by a wooden sliding drawbridge. The views from the property's entrance are stunning, and the location is private being at the top of Barrack Hill.

In 2009 the barracks was declared the second most endangered Victorian or Edwardian building in Britain.

Viewing strictly by appointment only.
