Grade II listed guest house on the market for £1.4m

Roseleigh Guest House

A Grade II listed guest house has been brought to market in Buxton.

Christie & Co has been instructed to find a buyer for Roseleigh Guest House after owners Gerard and Maggi Heelan decided to sell up following a quarter of a century at the helm.

The guest house received an AA 4 Star Gold Award and has featured in the Good Hotel Guide for the last six years under their stewardship.

Located on Broad Walk overlooking Pavilion Gardens, the four-storey building dates back to 1871 and includes 14 guest bedrooms, a dining room with space for 24 customers and a guest lounge.

The property also includes owners’ accommodation with the potential to be converted into additional letting rooms.

Gavin Webb, associate director at Christie & Co, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a guest house business in a picturesque tourist location. The business has established a strong reputation with its loyal customer base, evidenced through its excellent AA and TripAdvsior ratings. This is an ideal acquisition for a lifestyle buyer who is possibly new to the hospitality trade.”

Gerard and Maggi Heelan added: “Buxton is a vibrant spa town with a rich annual programme of arts festivals, and each summer sees the Buxton International Festival and The International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival held at the Buxton Opera House. The iconic, and now restored, Buxton Crescent and the prevalence of Georgian and Victorian architecture make the town a superb place to invest, especially as the gateway to the Peak District and to avail of the recent restoration and ongoing investment within Buxton.”

Christie & Co are seeking offers of over £1,350,000 for the freehold going concern.
