About this property

A most unusual group of three buildings, on a plot of approximately 0.5 of an acre; comprising of The Manse an approx. 1800 Sq. Ft detached house, the Baptist Chapel of 2900 Sq. Ft and a community building of 4200 Sq. Ft which provides an opportunity to continue the current F1 use or redevelopment of site.

Our Clients are seeking unconditional bids for the whole site, although consideration might be given to a split of the component parts.

The Manse comprises a detached house of 1787 Sq. Ft or thereabouts and is currently used as office and storage accommodation to support the chapel. The property is traditionally constructed in brick with a tiled roof, has a single garage, rear garden and large lawned area to the front. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, three reception rooms and a kitchen with store rooms off. To the first floor are three bedrooms, bathroom and a separate WC.

The Baptist Church is an attractive late Victorian building, arranged over a single floor but by virtue of the footprint and ceiling heights, it provides enormous potential to increase the floor area with additional of a first floor or mezzanine. There is a wealth of character provided by the structural elements and windows.

Special note
Interested parties are encouraged to discuss any potential use of the chapel with the Agents. Conversion to residential or commercial use or a continued community use, will be encouraged.

This is a substantial detached property constructed in the 1970's in traditional materials and was designed to support The Baptist chapel's social activities and community work. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises a reception hall, substantial main hall with ancillary WC's, a kitchen, office and four other ground floor rooms. A staircase gives access to a large first floor room. The property has latterly been used as a Pre-School Nursery.

Whetstone is located approximately six miles south of the city centre, providing excellent access to the M1/M69 motorway networks and associated Fosse Retail Park. Train stations can be found at Leicester city and nearby Narborough, and local day-to-day shopping can be found in nearby Blaby.
