Property Summary

The site itself extends to approximately 2,351.01 sq m (25,307 sq ft), or 0.581 acres. On the site sits a large detached church building, single-storey school building and another single storey building. Furthermore, there is a plot of land to the north of the site, that also forms part of this instruction, but which is held on a separate title.

The main church hall is of traditional construction, with brick elevations, set beneath pitched and slate roof coverings. The property provides for timber framed windows, including traditional stained-glass windows, in keeping with the nature of the property itself.

Internally, the main church building is arranged over ground floor only in a more traditional church like manner, providing for a main worship area, chancel, vestry and an organ, as well as a storage room, office/meeting room and a WC.

Located to the rear of the main church building, is the school building, which is accessed from within the car park area.

The school building is again, of traditional masonry construction and is set beneath a number of roof coverings, which includes, slate, asbestos, felt and metal profile sheeting.

The accommodation comprises of a main hall area with stage and both male and female WC's accessed off the hall area. There is a further room to the rear, which provides for a smaller hall area, with a good-sized kitchen. Behind the stage within the main hall, is access to a further good-sized room, which again has storage rooms and WC's situated off it.

The third building on the site is known as the 'scout hut', provides for basic single storey accommodation, which is of basic construction, including concrete panelled walls and clad elevations and is sat beneath, what we assume to be a profile metal sheet roof covering. This element provides for majority open plan space, which includes a kitchen facility.

The property is situated on a reasonable sized site, and benefits from a reasonable allocation of off-road parking. The site is level and the built accommodation occupies approximately 40% of the subject site.

We are also advised that, the plot of land located to the north of the site, also forms part of this instruction, although is held on a separate title. The land is not used and has currently become overgrown. We are aware the land can only be used for a residential dwelling, although restrictive covenants on the land mean that access from Oldham Drive, cannot be used as a secondary access point to the overall site and indeed the plot of land.
