Savvy investors will flock to apartment in converted Prescot church

A ground floor apartment in a converted church schoolhouse is a divine investment opportunity in a class of its own.

Currently offered for sale via conditional online auction by SDL Auctions in partnership with Northwood Liverpool, 16 Meribel Square in Prescot, has a *guide price of £48,000+, making it ideal for buy-to-let investors on a mission.

Close examination of the 1878 former United Reformed Church and schoolhouse shows it to have been beautifully converted into a small development of apartments.

No 16 is smartly presented and has double glazing, electric heating and accommodation which comprises a hallway, lounge, fitted kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom.

Andrew Parker, managing director and auctioneer at SDL Auctions, said: “This is a smart property with an attractive guide price in an up-and-coming location, making it an excellent investment property or first-time buy.”

The apartment is situated in the heart of Prescot town centre, which is currently experiencing a renaissance thanks to investment in several high-profile projects, including the £28 million Shakespeare North Playhouse complex – due to open in 2022.

The town is no stranger to culture, hosting the Prescot Festival of music and arts each year, and being home to Prescot Museum, which details the town’s history of clock- and watch-making.

Its leisure facilities include Prescot Soccer Centre and gym, sports clubs, the popular Eaton Street Recreation Ground and wildflower meadow.

The town has also seen the opening of many new cafés, bars and restaurants, shops and supermarkets, and its historic buildings are being restored and brought back into use under the Prescot Townscape Heritage Initiative.

Transport links are excellent, with Liverpool city centre just a half hour’s drive away, and there are regular trains from Prescot Railway Station to Liverpool Lime Street, Wigan North Western, Preston and Blackpool.

Andrew added: “Prescot is definitely an investment location to watch. So much regeneration has already taken place here and the transformation is not over. Savvy investors will be taking a look at this burgeoning location.”

16 Meribel Square in Prescot has a guide price of £48,000+ and is being sold by conditional online auction by SDL Auctions in partnership with Northwood Liverpool. The auction ends on Friday 14th March at 2pm.
