Want to get away from it all? Pembroke Dock is a town in Pembrokeshire, Wales, on the banks of the River Cleddau. If you happen to be in the market for a fixer-upper and you want own private fortress, how about saving a piece of history before it falls into disrepair? You really should consider purchasing this offshore Gun Tower, originally built in 1851 in order to protect the Royal Dockyard of Pembroke Dock.
It includes “accommodations for 34 men” and private quarters for one officer, a 12,500-gallon water tank and 198,100 lbs. of gun powder. None of the guns were ever fired and the tower was ultimately disarmed around 1882.
The views are breathtaking and it was built in such a way that allowed it to remain standing even though it was once used as a store and a museum. John Francis Estate Agents are currently accepting offers starting at $87,000 US. You would also be responsible for leasing the walkway, all repairs and maintenance, and the cost of the drawbridge you’re going to have installed.
