Home with PERISCOPE from a World War Two Royal Navy submarine installed on sale ...

A quirky three-bedroom house with a secret periscope, which was salvaged from a World War Two Royal Navy submarine, installed inside has gone on the market for £2.5million.

The aptly-named Periscope House in Old Portsmouth, Hampshire, which is currently owned by a retired local businessman, is on the market with estate agents Strutt and Parker.

For those hoping to enjoy the magnificent views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, the waterside home comes with a hidden 10ft long periscope, which was built into the home when it was designed 15 years ago.

The periscope was salvaged from a World War Two Royal Navy X-class miniature submarine and allows the owner to enjoy close up views of the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour, The Solent and the Isle of Wight. 


The bottom of the periscope, which contains the view finder and handles, is suspended 4.5ft above the floor in the open plan living room, which stands in front of stunning floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to sea.
