Holy Moly! Place of worship goes to auction

A partially-converted former chapel, potentially worth £1m once fully refurbished, is being sold by auction this month with an attractive guide price of £250,000+ (plus fees).

Leading property auctioneer, SDL Property Auctions is to sell the former chapel on Villa Road in Cheddleton, Leek in its live-streamed National Property Auction on Thursday 29th February.

This stunning Grade II Listed church is set on a plot of approx. one acre and is packed full of character and original features. Uniquely, the development features a former tramway, now reimagined as the driveway to The Chapel, which creates a grand entrance appropriate for this remarkable property.

Andrew Parker, managing director and auctioneer at SDL Property Auctions, commented: “The Chapel offers a rare chance to own an exciting development, blending historical architecture and modern contemporary living. Plus, it has the benefit of planning permission for conversion into a residential property, for which much of the work already started.

“It provides an excellent opportunity for a developer to continue the work and create a truly stunning building.”

Part of the property has already been converted into a four bedroomed home, is decorated to a high standard and ready to move into. There is potential to further develop the rest of the building to create an attractive and modern family home.

The development is set on the grounds of the former St Edwards Hospital and not only provides luxurious living spaces, but also embraces its past with thoughtful preservation and conversion of historical structures. Prospective buyers with concerns about the property’s history can be reassured that despite the site’s past as a hospital with its own burial ground, there are no graves within the plot for sale.

A viewing schedule has been published here detailing when interested parties can visit the property. Prospective bidders can also visit the website to download the legal packs and register bid, either online, by proxy or on the phone.

The auction will be live streamed on the website from 10am on Thursday 29th February with successful bidders immediately exchanging contracts on the fall of the hammer, securing the sale with completion taking place only 30 days later. No pre-auction offers are being accepted.
