Plans have now been submitted to turn Gedling House into a meditation centre with cafe and bookshop.
The historic home was sold to Kadampa Meditation Centre Nottingham Ltd, earlier this year and will begin work on converting the 241-year-old building on Wood Lane into a Buddhist centre if plans are approved.
The semi-detached three-storey Georgian house, which is Grade II listed, was being used as office space by previous owners Jigsaw Homes Group.
Proposals submitted to Gedling Borough Council include creation of a meditation centre with a cafe and a book shop that would be opened to the public.
Ten bedrooms would also be created along with teaching suite and meditation suite.
A paved area would be created outside the cafe for tables and chairs and car parking would also be made avialble.
A spokesman for Kadampa Meditation Centre, talked to Gedling Eye following the sale back in May earlier this year.
They said:“We are really looking forward to moving into Gedling House
“As well as being a beautiful house, it also has stunning gardens and woodland. We are really lucky to be coming here.
“We are really looking forward to welcoming and working with the local community when we open our doors.”
Built around 1780, Gedling House was sold onto various individuals including Sir John Turney, until 1955 when it was sold to the local council.
The house was listed as Grade II in 1950 and it retains many original features including a paneled entrance hall, geometrical cantilevered wooden staircase and three 19th-century classic style fireplaces and hob grates.
Gedling Borough Council will make a decision on plans in the coming weeks.
