A stunning 207-year-old fortress designed to keep out invaders is now a welcoming home on the market for £750,000.<br />
<br />
The Q Tower, a Martello tower in Felixstowe, Suffolk, retains many of its defensive features, including a dry moat surrounding it with a 4.5metre-high wall, a drawbridge and even a pair of cannons - perfect for deterring unwanted visitors.<br />
<br />
And from the top the striking Grade II listed building the owners will be able to enjoy stunning panoramic views along the coastline and out to sea.<br />
<br />
The tower was built in 1810 and was an important element in the defence of the south-east coast against the threat of invasion during the Napoleonic War.
