The three-bed home was built in 1941 as part of Britain's sea defences but it was never required and the guns were removed after the war.

It was converted into a unique beachfront house in 1985 but has recently been transformed into a breathtaking building by a property developer.

'We've had quite a few interested parties and would expect more after Christmas and the new year.

The seaside property is located around ten miles from the iconic Goodwood Racecourse with the cathedral city of Chichester also near by.
