Price:Offers over £180,000
church building situated on Forres high street. This property has
planning consent and listed buildings consent to convert to two large
houses taking full advantage of the internal features and stained glass
Planning Refs: 07/01463/FUL and 07/01464/LBC
Forres provides many amenities; Post Office, Primary and Secondary schools, swimming pool, supermarkets, award winning parks, 18 hole golf course and many local distilleries. Being very close to beautiful beaches offering sailing and dolphin watching. The town is only 4 miles from the famous Findhorn centre, and is home to Findhorn’s sister college, Cluny House.
The building was designed by John Rhind and as well as having beautiful stained windows, it also houses a stunning ceiling. It has an enormous lower floor lit by numerous arched windows.
The conversion has been started: dry rot treatment, stripping out internal partition walls, toilets etc, and the roof has been repaired. The present owner had hoped that it might become a community building but this has not been possible and the building is now on The Buildings at Risk Register (making it potentially easier to obtain grants for repair).
Great potential for either private dwellings or as a centre for tourism for this stunning area.

|Detached chapel conversion situated in
an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – David Bellamy described
this fellside area between the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall as
‘England’s last wilderness’.
Village setting with pub/restaurant, and excellent local schools nearby. Unusually for a chapel conversion, the property has a generous garden, including walled cottage garden area, lawn and a driveway providing parking for 4 cars.
A special feature of the house appealing to families with children is the “Secret” wardrobe door (inspired by “the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”) that leads from bedroom 3 into play area/bedroom 4. There is also a treehouse in the garden, and the small stream next to the house is safe for paddling/netting and catching small fish (if the resident heron doesn’t get there first!)
The Old Chapel has a large dining kitchen with Aga, living room with log-burning stove, 3-4 bedrooms, 2 en-suites, main bathroom and utility room/workshop/store. The property has oil-fired central heating, an oil-fired Aga and log-burning/multi-fuel stove.
The features include the stained glass windows, wood floor from a church, stone corbels, beamed ceiling, use of old pine pews which have been made into doors, skirting boards and staircase. In the dining kitchen, a mahogany, former CO-OP counter provides a useful worksurface and serving area together with the Chapel’s original lecturn and balustrade separating the entrance from the dining area which complements the Aga to provide a most characterful and welcoming kitchen.
