A former hospital in Warwick has been put up for sale for the first time in 200 years.
The Grade II listed townhouse on Castle Street, which is on the market for £1,750,000, was run as a dispensary for the sick and poor from 1826.
It became a hospital in 1871, and then a general practice from 1948 when the National Health Service was introduced.
Then 12 years ago the building was turned into a five-bed house by the current owners.
Property agents Savills said: "They have sympathetically renovated and transformed the property back to its former glory.
"The property retains many of the original period features including sash windows, open fireplaces, wooden panelling and elm/oak floorboards.
"This is the first time the property has been offered for sale as a residential dwelling for over 200 years."
Split over three floors the property has three bathrooms and three sitting rooms.
The walled garden has been divided into various terraced seating areas.
Property agent Sophie Gannon said: "This is an intriguing property with so much charm to absorb.
"I love the fact that it is tucked away on a side street yet within a 100 yards of the local facilities, and with a pretty terraced private garden."
