Grade II listed Wiltshire guest house comes to the market

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been appointed to market Fairlawn House Guest House, situated close to the one of the world’s most famous prehistoric monuments, Stonehenge.

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 attractive 18-bedroom Georgian guest house features a high-quality finish throughout, having undergone 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.

The business has been consistently trading well since the owners took over in 2010 and benefits from a mixture of leisure and corporate guests, with a strong level of repeat visitors and a well-established reputation in the community. Trading all year round, the highly profitable guest house is ready to continue trading under new ownership immediately.

Fairlawn’s current owners, Keith and Tracey Pullen, comment, “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 who is handling the sale comments, “Fairlawn House is ideally situated two miles away from the World Heritage Site, Stonehenge, benefitting 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.”

Fairlawn House is being marketed off a freehold guide price of £1,450,000.
