If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own Victorian folly, now’s your chance.
The Grade I listed Hadlow Tower is on the market, after its current owners, the Vivat Trust, went into liquidation last August.
The tower stands at 53m and so is 1m taller than Nelson’s Column.
The Vivat Trust was a registered charity and dedicated to preserving buildings of national importance and it had carried out a complete restoration of the tower in recent years at a cost of more than £4.2m.
The tower was most recently let out as a holiday cottage - at a cost of £1,954 a week.
It is being sold through Eddisons, on the instructions of the trust’s administrators, Begbies Traynor.
There is no guide price, offers are invited.
Eddisons director Abdul Jambo said: “Hadlow Tower is unique. Nothing comparable has come on the market so it's difficult to put a price on it."
Hadlow Tower was built by industrialist Walter Barton May in 1838 and originally formed part of Hadlow Castle.
The tower was designed by naval architect George Ledwell Taylor and built in brick rendered with cement. It is the tallest folly in England.
There is a steel staircase rising to the summit of the tower, where there is the living accommodation made up of three bedrooms, a drawing room, dining room, two bathrooms and a wet room spread over five storeys.
