Melsonby, North Yorkshire

                conversion for sale

Dating back to c. 1866, this former chapel retains many character features including wonderfully high ceilings and stained glass windows throughout. The large living space makes it an amazing place to entertain friends and family.

This is a rare and unique chapel conversion into a three-bedroomed family home, along with a study and playroom. It has planning consent to extend to four-bedroomed, across a third floor with double height roof space, if desired. The building is of historical interest within a conservation area, but with no covenants or restrictions in terms of materials if the property is to be further developed.

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.
