For Sale: Church for Conversion in Biggar, Lanarkshire

07 Jan
January 7, 2013

Description

A former church for conversion.
The Broughton United Free Church was built in 1846 and is where John Buchan’s father, the Reverend John Buchan was minister, and has for the past 20 years served as a museum commemorating the life of John Buchan, a renowned politician and novelist who wrote well known novels such as The Thirty-Nine Steps and Greenmantle. The museum has recently vacated the building for new premises, providing an ideal opportunity for someone to convert the building to either commercial or residential purposes.
The church extends to about 222 square metres and has retained many of its original features, including stained glass windows, domed ornate ceilings with exposed beams and original floors and doors. Planning permission has not been sought for conversion to residential use but if granted, the church could be transformed into a charming home with plenty of character. Alternatively, subject to change of use, it could be converted into a café / gallery or alternative commercial use. The building is not currently listed.
To the front of the church is a gravel parking area, with prominent road frontage. Together with the area to the rear the grounds could be landscaped to create an attractive garden for residential purposes or provide ample customer parking for commercial purposes. Additional land to the rear may be available by separate negotiation.

Planning Permission The church does not have planning permission for residential use and is currently designated as a Museum. Buyers will need to apply for Change of Use planning permission or submit detailed planning permission for an alternative use.

Renovation Project: Former School House For Sale – Plymouth,UK

13 Aug
August 13, 2012

A grade II* listed former school house for sale. This property situated in Plympton St Maurice, Plymouth was originally built in 1664 in the Jacobean style which was then renovated at around 1870.

This building could make an absolutely stunning home if it were renovated to its full potential. I particularly like the arches on the ground floor and would look particularly good if they were filled with glass panels so that it could be used as a fully functioning level of the property. That being said, what I and you may think is a good idea is completely different to what planners think is a good idea. For those not aware, the asterisk denotes a particularly important building of more than special interest.

Finally, the building is in a secluded south facing location in a conservation area and the Garden area is mainly laid to lawn together with a large car park for approximately 16 cars.

Offers are invited in the region of £250,000 for the freehold with further details available here.
