A Georgian guest house in Amesbury that has been a family home, a doctor’s surgery, an auction house and a ladies’ finishing school is set for a new chapter in its history.
Fairlawn House, which is Grade-II listed and has numerous original features, has been brought to the market by Colliers International for offers in the region of £1.45m.
The refurbished property is located on the high street, and has 18 bedrooms generating net accommodation sales in excess of £300,000 per annum.
However, the business – which is within a few miles of Stonehenge – offers plenty of potential for further growth, according to Ed Jefferson of Colliers International.
He said: “This is an impressive Grade-II listed building in a High Street location, built in 1838 for a local surgeon. Three of the letting rooms are located in a converted coach house to the rear.
“Our clients acquired the business in 2010 and have worked hard to improve the property and restore business levels – not to mention creating a fantastic, three-bedroom family home.”
The 18 letting rooms at Grade-II listed Fairlawn House comprise three singles, one twin, eight doubles and six larger family rooms arranged over four floors.
Although the bedroom décor is contemporary the owners have retained Georgian features including a curved staircase in the impressive entrance hall.
