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.

It has a gross internal area of 277 sq m (2988 sq ft) and has planning permission.’

For sale we have 2 barns for renovation in Cornwall. These stone barns with  commenced planning permission for the conversion into two separate residential dwellings have permission granted for one 4 bedroom and one 3 bedroom residential houses.

The listing on the website doesn’t make it desperately clear how the property is split other than ‘lots 2 and 3 offer the purchaser(s) the opportunity of converting the barns into two separate dwellings, each with full residential planning consent. The conversion plans and a copy of the planning consent can be requested from the selling agents.’

There is no mention of a plot 1, but plots 2 and 3 have further information with ‘each lot having a separate mains water pipe, which has already been brought down the road and are located to the eastern boundary. Should the sale of lots 2 & 3 be split, the arrangements for the division will be made on the ground between all parties concerned.’

The property has an asking price of £350,000
