HISTORY Originally built as a single residence, Kildare House was acquired by the Moose International organisation in 1933 and subsequently renamed Mooseheart. The organisation reconfigured the house as a member's hotel (use class C1) and extended the property in the 1980's to provide further bedrooms and a function room. A large conservatory was added later. The property was sold by Moose International to the current owners in 2014. 

KILDARE HOUSE LOT 1 Currently arranged as a hotel, Kildare House comprises 14 bedrooms with en-suites, a commercial kitchen, three reception rooms, function room and a conservatory all arranged over two storeys. Many period features have been retained. The house benefits from a stunning situation with views towards the Mendip Hills. The lot will include the immediate grounds, a number of outbuildings, the remains of an old walled garden, a play area and the agricultural land to the front of the house. In total a land area of approximately 16.55 acres. 

COACH HOUSE LOT 2 The Coach House is currently in use as office accommodation on the ground floor with a self-contained, four bedroom apartment above. The two storey, detached building enjoys a secluded location away from the main house and benefits from views over open countryside towards Banwell Castle. The lot will include woodland, orchard and paddock totalling approximately 1.77 acres and including the remains of a former outbuilding.  

GATEHOUSE LODGE LOT 3 The Gatehouse Lodge is a detached, two storey, residential dwelling at the entrance to the estate and provides two bedrooms, a kitchen and two reception rooms. The lot will include the adjoining garden and a small area of woodland totalling approximately 0.13 acres. 

THE OPPORTUNITY Kildare House could be reinstated to a single dwelling or converted to multiple residential units, subject to obtaining the necessary statutory consents, including planning permission. The Coach House, Lodge, outbuildings and land may offer further possibilities. The Coach House may offer the opportunity to convert the existing office space to residential accommodation under permitted development rights, subject to prior approval from the local planning authority. The House and grounds may also offer the opportunity for alternative uses such as healthcare, leisure or institutional uses, again subject to the required permissions being obtained by the purchaser. The House could also continue in use as a hotel or bed and breakfast establishment. The Joint Agents are instructed to seek proposals for our client's freehold interest. The property is available for sale, subject to contract, as a whole or in three separate lots. All offers should be made in writing addressed to the Joint Agents Colliers International or Hobbs and Webb. The boundaries shown and land areas quoted for the individual lots are for indicative purposes and may be subject to variation. 

TENURE The property is held freehold. The gatehouse lodge is currently let under an assured shorthold tenancy producing £795 per calendar month. The coach house is subject to a court excluded lease to Moose International at a rent of £6,000 per annum. The lease is for a period of two years up to and including 24 July 2016. The agricultural land is subject to a secure agricultural tenancy. Further details can be provided by the Joint Agents, on request.
