One of Wiltshire’s poshest business addresses, Hartham Park, goes up for sale
One of Wiltshire’s poshest business addresses, Hartham Park near Corsham, has been put up for sale.
The impressive former country house estate was redeveloped into a business park in 1997, with the main house and adjoining buildings playing host to 70 sub-let serviced offices.
Now the property has been put on the market for £8 million by joint selling agents Christie & Co and Strutt & Parker on behalf of administrators Kroll Advisory Ltd.
One possible future use for the Grade II listed building, say the agents, is as a hotel.
Set in 50 acres the house offers 67,763 square feet of accommodation in total across various buildings including an impressive Grade II listed mansion house, coach house and stables, and modern office/reception building.
Ed Bellfield, director at Christie & Co, said: “We are excited to offer Hartham Park for sale as it is rare that a property of this magnitude comes to the open market.
“The opportunities this property provides and its location, will offer a buyer potential for a variety of alternative uses, subject to obtaining planning permission.
“The added attraction of acquiring one of only three playable ‘Sticke’ tennis courts in existence will not doubt generate interest.”
Oliver Custance Baker, head of Strutt & Parker’s country house department, said: “Hartham Park is a country house that’s taken on many guises since its Georgian inception.
“From a private family estate and hosting Sir Winston Churchill, to becoming an RAF billet during the second world war and, in more recent history, being used to house commercial offices, it’s certainly adaptable.
“The sale of the house presents the start of a new chapter in Hartham Park’s history, whether that be as a private estate, a country house hotel, used by the education sector, or for the provision of senior living.
“With over 67,000 square feet of space to develop, the buyer will have grand ambitions and imagination – which this house, of such significance and size, surely deserves.”
