Price guide £400,000
This handsome Grade II listed building has until recently served as the Baptist Church for the Middleyard/Kings Stanley area and is now to be sold. Stroud District Council’s preference is for the building to be sold to a buyer who will use it as an amenity space for the local community but a prospective buyer may wish to buy the property with an eye to obtaining planning permission to convert for another use in the long term. The property comprises entrance hall with flagstone floor, wonderful 45’ former sanctuary with pulpit and gallery, inner hall, WC, kitchen area and 31’ meeting hall on the ground floor. A staircase leads down from the latter to a lower ground floor, with a toilet block, plant room and 36’ space on this level.
The grounds for the building include and area of land to the side of the building and the graveyard. There is a war grave of specific historic interest here that will need special consideration and protection. There is a lovely view at the rear of the building across the fields behind.
