The Property

This significant and architecturally attractive building is believed to have been built by the Church during the Victorian era in 1890 for use as a Sunday School and Mission Hall and has been used by the Church and local community until it was acquired by our vendors who have since sought planning.

This site also offers the rare opportunity to create your own “Grand Design”. The current building being large enough to create something quite special. Or indeed an alternative development scheme. This would of course be subject to planning permission and any other necessary consents being sought.

Planning was granted in December 2020 for conversion into three, three-bedroom homes of 115sqm, 125sqm, and 145 sqm. Each separate freehold dwelling shown on the plans has their own entrance including bicycle storage and is laid out over two floors. Shown on the ground floor is a large open plan kitchen/living area, bedroom 3/study, and utility room. Two of the units show a shower room on the ground floor, while the third has a cloakroom. To the first floor there are two further bedrooms, both en suite, with two units also showing a family bathroom. Outside each unit has an area of garden, with two units also having an enclosed and secluded courtyard garden.
