A forgotten Victorian fortress with 1.04 acres of land in Lincoln has been put onto the market for £750,000.
The Lindum Terrace property, with views over the Arboretum, was most recently used as a home.
In the 1980s, it was owned by Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation trust. It has been used as nursing quarters and also as a step on for people moving from rehab back into the community.
Today though, the hidden estate features eerie boarded up windows wild forest-style grounds and inside, trespassers have scrawled messages on crumbling walls.
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust put the property up for sale for £750,000 in 2017. It was sold to developers in the same year.
In 2017, plans were tabled by a Dr Sharaf Salem to transform the plot into a new medical village, but the project has not progressed at the time of writing.
Agents managing the freehold sale of the building Mundys said in the description of the property: “The plot has a Victorian Commercial Building in need of full renovation and modernisation and offers a wide range of opportunities subject to the necessary Planning Approvals.
“It is understood that the property was most recently used as a residential property, but has history of use as nurses’ quarters. Viewing is strictly by appointment via Mundys Estate Agents.”
