The grade two-listed Cuerden Hall has been put on the market for £1.5m with its current tenants set to vacate in 2020.
It has 26 bedrooms, a stable, and sits on 27.3 acres of land one mile to the south of Bamber Bridge and one mile to the east of Leyland. Current tenant the Sue Ryder Charity, which provides palliative, neurological, and bereavement support, made the decision to move to a purpose-built facility in Fulwood in November last year, stating Cuerden Hall was “not fit for purpose”.
It is currently used as a residential care facility, but parts of the building are not accessible for residents while the listed nature of the hall makes it difficult for the charity to make internal adaptions.
The main hall was built in 1717, and much of the original building has been retained. In 1977 the Central Lancashire Development Corporation moved in and developed the landscape into what it is today. By the late 1980s the site had been purchased by Sue Ryder.
Eckersley and GL Hearn are the agents on the sale of the hall, which has a guide price of £1.5m.
