Central Victoria's historic Redesdale Hotel is scheduled to go up for auction May 18 in Moreton-in-Marsh, U.K.
The hotel is expected to fetch upwards of $1 million. The freehold is offered complete as a going concern and agents Peter Moore Hotel & Leisure Broker of the Melbourne Commercial Group, in conjunction with Arch Staver of agents Nelson Alexander, tip the property will reach the $1 million mark.
The Redesdale Hotel, on the Kyneton to Heathcote Road, midway between the two towns, was a coach stop on the old Cobb & Co trail from Melbourne to Bendigo.
Adjoining the hotel on the main road frontage is the heritage-listed former stables, which are currently used for storage. The garden, created by designer Phil Stray, includes a bocce pitch, an outdoor bar service area and extensive plantings.
The distinctive 250sqm single-storey bluestone hotel building is set on more than 9100 sqm of professionally landscaped grounds within one of Victoria’s more popular wine regions. It features a commercial kitchen complete with fixtures and fittings, a two-bedroom bed and breakfast unit called The Mews, which was used as onsite accommodation by the owners, and several other outbuildings. There is also a transferable liquor licence.
The Redesdale Hotel will be auctioned on site on Saturday 18 May at 11.30 am.
