THE PROPERTY This is an attractive former Methodist church and attached school room, built originally in the early 20th century with stone and brickwork elevations, under a pitch tiled roof.

The extent of the property, which includes a rectangular area of land to the immediate east of the property fronting Cock Road, is shown edged in red upon the OS plan within these sales particulars for identification purposes only.

The property enjoys a convenient position in a predominantly residential area of the city, about 2 miles to its south. Cock Road is busy and there are local retail, commercial and education facilities in the immediate vicinity.


The current accommodation can be summarised as follows:

Ground Floor:
Church 6.8m x 14.1m = 96 sq m (1,030 sq ft)
Office/Store 3.7m x 6.5m = 24 sq m (260 sq ft)
Fitted Kitchen 5.3m x 3.8m = 20.1 sq m (215 sq ft)

Stairs to first floor, 3 inter-communicating offices
13.25m x 3.95m overall = 52.3 sq m (560 sq ft)
Total floor area: 192 sq m (2065 sq ft)

Outside there is a small forecourt to the front of the church, but no on site car parking.

To the east is a rectangular area of disused land with a frontage of 10.7m to Cock Road and a depth of
18.75 sq.m

VIEWINGS The general location of the property may be viewed during normal daylight hours. We are organising a number of open view times for parties wishing to see inside the existing
building as follows:

1. Wednesday 17th October, 2.00pm - 3.30pm

2. Saturday 20th October, 2.00pm - 3.30pm

3. Wednesday 24th October, 11.00am - 12.30pm

LOCATION The property is to be found in the Warmley/Kingswood area of the city in a predominantly residential locality. It is approximately 2 miles east of Bristol's City Centre.

There are retail, commercial, leisure and educational facilities in the immediate vicinity for everyday use and the City of Bristol itself offers all facilities. The motorway network may be joined at the Almondsbury interchange for either the M5 or the M4 and mainline railway services are available from Temple Meads station.

TOWN & COUNTRY PLANNING The former use of the building is within D1 of the Use Classes order as a place of worship. This would also permit other community uses, including clinics, surgeries, creches, day nurseries and consulting rooms. Alternatively in our view the building itself could be converted to create an attractive individual dwelling and the land to the east could also be suitable for an additional dwelling, although both would require planning permission.

Interested parties should address any specific enquiries to the local Planning Authority.

IMPORTANT NOTES 1. The vendor reserves the right to remove all fixtures and fittings currently at the property.

2. The property is sold subject to standard Methodist Church disposal rules and regulations.
