Introducing Old Custom House, an Exclusive Gated Community. Old Custom House was purpose built for Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise and officially opened in 1982.
Located in the heart of Dovercourt, the offices played a vital role in this maritime town where it also undertook important Customs functions for the whole of the UK. Old Custom House provided accommodation for teams including the Mobile Task Force and administration for all associated freight control functions at nearby Parkeston Quay and Harwich Navyard. The building also contained a strong room which was used to store contraband seized from nearby ports.
Make Old Custom House’s history a part of your future… Old Custom House provides a unique opportunity to own a piece of a wonderful maritime legacy.
