Derby City Council has announced that it will be formally placing Allestree Hall and Stable Block on the market for sale in May 2018. In addition, the Council will be offering the opportunity to operate the adjoining golf course, whilst retaining ownership of the remaining land as public open space which forms Allestree Park.
Cllr Martin Rawson, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economy said:
“Allestree Hall is a unique opportunity to acquire a significant grade II* listed former country house. We are seeking proposals to bring the Hall and outbuildings back into use. We are willing to consider a variety of uses – including residential, leisure, education and commercial – but any conversion of the Hall will need to be undertaken in a sympathetic manner which reflects its listed status.
“We welcome the opportunity to speak with any parties who would like to express an interest in the Hall. This will allow us to discuss any plans for the sensitive conversion of the building to bring it back into use in a sustainable and comprehensive manner. In addition we are seeking any viable proposals for the operation of the adjacent golf course facility.”
A full marketing pack including planning brief will be released in May 2018. Any parties wishing to express their interest in the proposal are invited to contact the Council team at email@example.com and your details will be added to our database.
Allestree Hall comprises an imposing 19th century stone built Grade II* listed former Country House, with outbuildings arranged over 2/3 storeys. The interior of the Hall boasts an original stone staircase and Robert Adams style ceilings. The majority of the Hall is empty and requires suitable and sensitive refurbishment. The Hall is located within Allestree Park which comprises 300 acres of public open space in a Country Park setting including woodland, lake, golf course and local nature reserve located on the fringe of the Derbyshire countryside, and is next to the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site.
