Hinwick Hall has been sold with a price tag of £2.7 million.
The hall near Wellingborough, which is a Grade II* Listed property set in 35 acres and had been in use as a specialist residential college for young disabled adults until it closed in July 2014, has been sold for £2.7 million by Carter Jonas.
Carter Jonas, the national property consultancy, was acting for Livability, a Christian charity that creates opportunities for disabled people, and appointed to devise a disposal strategy to achieve the best value for the charity, meeting the charity’s objectives and in accordance with the Charities Act 2011.
This initially involved undertaking planning and development appraisals to identify the potential for change of use and re-development before implementing a full marketing campaign to get a sale.
Hinwick Hall’s new owner proposes to combine a private residence with a new education facility.
Emma Jewson, associate partner, planning and development team for Carter Jonas, said: “We have successfully sold Hinwick Hall having liaised with the local planning authority, Bedford Borough Council, to inform the preparation of a planning brief.
“The brief considered the main planning constraints and opportunities and provided prospective purchasers with an initial steer on planning potential.
“We managed the sale process, initially targeting a sale as a going concern and then taking the property to the open market.
“Interest was received for a range of uses including reversion to a family home and residential conversion and development.
“It’s great to know that Hinwick Hall has a super future ahead of it.”
