Barker Storey Matthews Peterborough office, acting on behalf of Burghley House Preservation Trust, has sold the freehold interest of the iconic Brewery House in Stamford to private purchasers who intend to convert the Grade II listed building back to residential use.

Brewery House, which was formerly part of the Melbourne Brothers Brewery, is located on Scotgate in the heart of Stamford's town centre. Only 500 metres from the high street, the 2,448 Sq Ft property was most recently used as office space but had previously been a residential dwelling. The property had been divided into a number of office areas and provides ample onsite parking in a secure gated yard for at least eight cars. The property attracted significant interest, principally for residential use. 

Cameron Park, Associate Director at Barker Storey Matthews commented, "As soon as this property was placed on the market it received strong interest from a range of developers and occupiers. Unsuprisingly the building is now returning to its former use, a residential dwelling. Housing close to Stamford's town centre is incredibly well sought after and this property's location and parking provision make it ideal for a large town house".

Sarah Mayhew, Assistant Agent of Burghley Estate added, "Selling the Brewery House was a difficult decision for the Trustees as it clearly formed part of Burghley's history. Nonetheless, the estate has to be sustainable and despite marketing the property to let as a commercial unit, the large office space proved difficult to find occupiers for in Stamford. It will make a stunning home and I am sure it will be enjoyed for years to come."
