Guide price

Connells are proud to present an opportunity to be the newest custodians of this fantastic Georgian property enshrined in the history of Stourport. With flexible accommodation of 2,580 sq ft, this property really must be seen to appreciate the accommodation and history.


8 The Tontine was originally one of only four houses in the wings of the building and is the one that has been least altered in the nearly 250 years since. It benefits from accommodation amounting to approximately 2,580 Square feet (240 Sq m) including a dining room and bedroom four/study on the ground floor, an impressive lower ground floor dining kitchen and utility room, first floor bedroom, bathroom and lounge, with views over the basin and two second floor bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms.

This freehold property, fully refurbished ten years ago, also benefits from two allocated parking spaces (on a leasehold basis), a shared ownership in The Tontine Management Company, an efficient continuous ventilation system in all 'wet' rooms and hardwired smoke detectors throughout.

The property is situated on the canalside of the building, with views over the basin. Just the other side of the building are public lawn areas overlooking the River Severn and lovely riverside walks.


The Grade II* listed Tontine Hotel was built in the 1770s by the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal Company to accommodate workers, merchants and wealthy businessmen, and is believed to have set the precedent for future transport hotels. The building occupies a location which, at the time would have been considered useful and is now regarded as picturesque, sitting between the canal basin and the River Severn.

As described by English Heritage "Commercial buildings of pre 1840 date are uncommon: this is an exceptionally rare building..". The fortunate buyer of this property really is purchasing a part of Stourport history, along with a magnificent property in its own right, having spacious & characterful accommodation along with a very desirable location.
