A Singapore-based investment company has bought Brownsover Hall Hotel for a sum in the region of £3.25 million.
The grade II-listed gothic venue in Brownsover Lane has 47 bedrooms and comprises a former mansion and a number of smaller buildings.
It was designed by the renowned architect George Gilbert Scott, whose other buildings included the Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras station in London, in about 1855 and is set within seven acres of gardens and woodland.
Colliers International handled the sale on behalf of American property company Northwood Investors, which recently bought Highcross Strategic Partners, the previous owner of Brownsover Hall.
Julian Troup, head of ‘hotels agency’ at Colliers International, said: “With its sweeping staircase and feature fireplaces, Brownsover Hall Hotel is magnificent. The mansion and surrounding converted accommodation display all the features expected of a traditional gothic period property.
“With its unique and historical features the hotel continues to attract a wide ranging clientele. This latest sale is another example of how we are continuing to see oversees interest in the UK Hotels market, particularly from investors in South and South East Asia.”
