Fairlawn House, situated close to Stonehenge and formerly a ladies finishing school has been brought to market for £1.45m
Built in 1838, the Grade II listed property boasts a rich history, having been adapted for a variety of uses over the years, including a family home, doctor’s surgery, auction house and esteemed ladies finishing school before being transformed into a guest house.
Occupying a prominent position on the High Street, the 18-bedroom Georgian guest house underwent significant refurbishment to include the addition of three suites and three-bedroom owners’ accommodation, which is separate from the business, and accessed via the rear decked courtyard.
Christie and Co, which is handling the sale said the business has been consistently trading well since the owners took over in 2010 and benefits from a mixture of leisure and corporate guests.
Fairlawn’s current owners, Keith and Tracey Pullen, said: “We are looking to pursue other business ventures and new challenges, having successfully grown the Fairlawn House business over the last eight years.”
Richard Wood, senior business agent at Christie & Co said: “Fairlawn House is ideally situated two miles away from the World Heritage Site, Stonehenge, benefiting from strong tourist trade all year round. The business would suit a hands-on owner operator looking to relocate and run a profitable guest house set in a remarkable property which has been at the heart of the community throughout its various incarnations over the years.”
