The Waterhouse in Monkton Combe, Bath, has been brought to market for offers in excess of £2.75m, on behalf of The Wilsher Pension Trust.
The Waterhouse is an 18th Century country house which sits on a 3.22 acre site and is surrounded by landscaped grounds and meadow views. The Waterhouse features hotel accommodation with 13 en-suite bedrooms and 10 serviced offices.
There is staff accommodation which is provided in two staff bedrooms and one staff studio flat. Within the grounds there is also a Matron’s Cottage which is currently “in a state of disrepair and would be suitable for a range of alternative uses subject to planning permission”.
The Waterhouse and its grounds are situated in Monkton Combe, set in the Midford valley with countryside surroundings and “stunning views”. Monkton Combe is a village on the south eastern side of Bath, three miles from the city centre.
The site was originally a substantial stone country house built in the late 18th Century. The house was extended when a modern wing was added in 1983, which now provides the hotel accommodation.
James Greenslade, director in the Hotel Capital Markets team at Savills, who is handling the sale, says: “Waterhouse is steeped in history and the current owners have lovingly restored the property by reinstating many of its original features including cornicing, wooden floors, fireplaces, shutters and oak staircases.
“The property is uniquely positioned to capture the growing staycation trend with its picturesque location close to Bath, or would suit a range of other commercial uses or possible development opportunities.”
