The freehold for two red phone boxes on Ramsgate seafront has gone on the market.
The listed British Red Telephone Boxes are up for grabs for £50,000 for the pair and are being marketed by Oakwood Homes (Commercial).
The “K6″ red phone boxes or “Jubilee” kiosks, commemorating the Silver Jubilee of the coronation of King George V are 8’3” high and 3ft square and come with an electrical supply.
The Ramsgate pair were used for the launch of Ring Ring Ice Cream in 2021. The boxes had been bought by isle resident Dan Montila at auction in April of that year.
This summer they were used briefly as a base for Dirtee Feast doughnuts, ice cream and toppings, coinciding with the business move to The Churchill Tavern from the now closed Ravensgate Arms.
Now the boxes are back on the market waiting for the next entrepreneur to take them over.
They were originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, who also designed Battersea Power Station and Bankside Power Station, now the Tate Modern.
Historic England has listed to preserve the country’s K6s and many have been transformed into coffee shops, ice cream kiosks, bakeries, and defibrillator holders.
The total number of surviving K2 telephone boxes is around 224 in the UK including the two on Ramsgate seafront, outside Wetherspoon.
