Steeton Hall on the market for £795,000
9:00am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
A hotel which closed last month has been put up for sale.
Steeton Hall, which shut on August 30, is being marketed on a freehold basis for £795,000.
The ten-bedroom hotel – owned by Punch Taverns – had been run under temporary management since April, following the sudden departure of the previous tenant.
Now Leeds-based CBRE, and Westlake & Co, have been appointed joint agents to sell the historic building in Station Road.
Sam Frankland, director of CBRE’s specialist markets team, said: “This is a truly unique opportunity for interested parties to purchase a part of West Yorkshire’s history.
“The property, which is a popular wedding venue, is ready-made for a keen entrepreneur to develop the business and is certain to attract keen interest due to its charm and character.”
Steeton Hall dates back to 1662 and was the one-time home of the Booth sisters, of Salvation Army fame. It has also been a boys’ boarding school.
The Grade II listed building was converted into a hotel and restaurant in 1983 and although the ownership has changed over the years, it has remained a hotel.
The premises were also used as a base by several groups, including Keighley Rotary Club.
