Cotswold listed buildings hit the market
A former school is among two properties presented as an “intriguing opportunity” on the market.
Located on the High Street in the Cotswolds village of Broadway, the Grade II Listed buildings are jointly listed for sale by Savills and KBW on behalf of the HW Keil Estate.
The Old School House, constructed in 1856 and enlarged in 1869, boasts period features, including a spire with a weather vane and a clock known as ‘The Dummy.’
Originally a school and later a library, the property was last used as an art gallery.
The unoccupied interior features showrooms, offices, storage, and kitchen facilities.
Eadburgha House, a 17th-century building adjacent to The Old School House, offers three floors of accommodation with gas central heating.
Its ground floor features bow windows, an original fireplace, wood panelling, and flagstone floors.
While both properties fall under Planning Use Class ‘E,’ accommodating retail, restaurant, office, and financial and professional services, potential alternative uses are subject to planning consent.
Chris Torbett, associate director of the development team at Savills in Birmingham, said: “The availability of Eadburgha House and Old School House, in what is a highly prominent and central location within the village of Broadway, represents an intriguing opportunity for interested parties. Broadway is a popular tourist destination within the Cotswolds, renowned as much for its honey-coloured stone properties as its art galleries, antique shops, museums, hotels and tea rooms, with it widely being regarded as the ‘jewel of the Cotswolds’ only adding to the huge potential of these properties.
“Given these factors and how rare a sale their availability represents, we are anticipating a high level of interest in both properties.”
