Martello Tower Folkestone
Martello towers were built during the Napoleonic Wars (between 1804 and 1812) as coastal defences against threat of foreign invasion and of the 103 towers built, only 45 remain, many of which are in ruins.

Built in 1804, this Grade II listed Martello Tower, located high and proud on the east cliff of Folkestone, is one of the few that have been converted. The majority of renovation work has been completed giving the new purchasers the opportunity to finish the internal renovation to their own style and specification.

The three bedroom property is arranged over four floors. On the ground floor is an entrance hall, master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and two other bedrooms that share a large family bathroom with sauna.

A wooden staircase leads to the first floor area, currently used as an open plan kitchen / diner with a perfectly recessed area at the front of the building for a breakfast table that enjoys the stunning views.

The second floor is reached by walking up a brick tunnelled staircase and opens out into one large open room that has benched seating around the entire perimeter of the room. With restricted head room, this floor would lend itself well as a snug / library, playroom or even possibly a cinema.

On the top floor there is an open plan lounge area with panoramic 360 degree views.
across the English Channel (France is visible in clear weather).

The tower is set in a good sized plot which boasts an underground garage / workshop which could have a number of uses.

All in all, a unique building, a unique opportunity and a unique location.
