Solent Forts: This is the deadline to bid on the luxury No Man's Fort near Portsmouth and the price tage as asking price is slashed

THERE is just over a week left for bidders to put in offers to purchase one of the Solent Forts near Portsmouth.

Colliers’ Hotel Agency have announced that anyone wishing to purchase No Man’s Fort, which is off the coast of the city, must submit a bid by next Friday (November 26).

It comes as the price has been slashed by over £600,000 to £3.6m.

The original asking price was £4.25m.

No Man’s Fort is a 23-bedroom luxury island retreat, it was refurbished in 2015 and a spa, restaurants, helipad, and events space were added.

More recently additional landing stages and new generators have been installed, as well as the fort’s own pub.

Paul Barrasford from Colliers’ Hotel Agency said: 'Following our recent sale of Horse Sand Fort, Mr Clare is keen to progress on No Man’s Fort and has reduced the asking price to £3.6m and set a deadline for offers to come forward.

‘There are not many people who can say that they own a fort, this site could be an amazing addition to a property portfolio, whether it is used as a hotel as it is now, a holiday residence or converted into a different use.

‘For a creative investor it could be many uses such as a data centre, specialist athletic training venue, a filming location, or even a headquarters for a fast-growing start-up. Its remote location offers the ultimate privacy and security.’

Horse Bank Fort was recently sold for £715,000 and a third fort is also up for sale – however this is available under separate negotiation.
