UK: Christie & Co has announced that Kelham Hall & Country Park in Nottinghamshire will be put up for auction in October through Allsop’s with a guide price of £6,500,000.
The 103-bedroom hotel and spa was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott as a precursor to his London St Pancras Train Station.
Set on 44 acres of landscaped gardens and parkland on the banks of the river Trent, the property is held as one of the country’s largest prime wedding, conference and events venues.
It comes with full planning and listed building consent from English Heritage, as well as discharging all the restart planning conditions associated with the estate’s development scheme. Any work on the property will utilise the current room layout from its original design.
Ryan Lynn, director of corporate hotels at Christie & Co, said: “We have had a very strong level of interest in the opportunity to date, which hasn’t surprised us due to how fantastic the building and the potential is. However, we also wanted to see what effect an auction process would have on the final price for our client, and are therefore working with the very well-known Allsop auction house to drive interest and achieve the very best possible price with set and focused deadlines.”
Kelham Hall & Country Park is scheduled for sale by auction online Thursday 29 October. Interested parties can register to bid here.
