Full Description: Cold East House was originally a Victorian mansion but records show that it was once known as Cold East Farm and Cold East Farm House. It was in existence in 1837 and was owned by Robert Cawte, although occupied by William Cawte. There is also a Cawte's Copse named after the family. It later became known as Cold East House when Arthur Hornby, later to move to Hook House in Warsash, lived there. In 1870, the house was bought by Nathaniel Montefiore from the Hood family. He became a JP shortly after his arrival and did much to enlarge and equip the school in 1874. His name is carved on one of the school's foundation stones. His widow lived in the house until she died in 1902. Nathaniel Montefiore was succeeded by his son Claude, a well known theologian. He wrote several books, was President of the Anglo-Jewish Association and became President of Southampton University College from 1915 to 1934. He died in 1938 aged 80. In 1925 the house was sold to Hampshire County Council. During the 1930's, Coldeast was developed as a hospital to provide specialist services for people with learning disabilities. Since the 1960's, Coldeast Hospital was used exclusively for people with learning disabilities. At its height in the late 1960's, Coldeast held 680 patients. With the emphasis on care changing to care in the community, the hospital underwent radical changes in the 1990's with the number of patients dropping to about 170. New plans for the hospital were for housing, a Community Hospital and other new health facilities. It is situated 7km to the west of Fareham on the western edge of Locks Heath. References: 1.
