James Greenslade, director in the hotel capital markets team at Savills Exeter, said: “We are delighted to complete the sale of The Waterhouse.
“We received significant interest from a range of investors attracted by the many original features of the building and picturesque location, on both an existing use and alternative use basis.”
Luke Brady, director in the residential team at Savills Bath, added: “It has been a privilege to have been involved with the sale of Waterhouse a decade on from the last time that we acted in the sale.
“The Wilsher group are long standing clients and transformed Waterhouse into a superb mixed residential and commercial facility. This iconic building sits in the heart of one of Bath’s most sought after rural locations.”
