Price:

£695,000








Chapel House was built in 1890 as one of the last additions to Beckford Hall (dating from the 11th century) to house a large new chapel.

It is attached to the main house at its Southern end only. It is on four floors.  The lower semi basement floor was a servants quarter and now comprises a large kitchen (with what was a huge walk-in safe/vault and is now a larder!), snug/television room and study/gym.

The first floor consists of the chapel and vestry.

The chapel was designed by Ion Pace and much of the original painting survives. There is one complete stained glass window depicting Saint Augustine, and 7 windows retaining stained glass panels showing angels playing old testament instruments. The larger part of the chapel (28’8” x 18’2”) is now a sitting room, while the altar area (17’7” x 15’”) is now a dining area. The vestry is now an entrance hall.

The second and third floors house 2 bedrooms each (bathroom on each floor).

Large private garden (50 x 50 yards) bounded on one side by a box walk said to be between 400 – 800 years old, also a vegetable area the length of one side.

The M5 is within very easy access.  There are good rail and coach links to London.

Substantial 1870’s 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 windows.
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.
