Property Description

Full description

** SOLD BY AUCTION** Excellent opportunity to invest in and develop large plot close to Seven Dials area.

Freehold building with excellent development potential (STNC)

A large late Victorian freehold brick built building under a pitched and tiled roof. Historically this and the adjoining buildings were known as Goldsmid Mews and were first used by a firm called Taylor and Company, suppliers of horses, carriages and drivers for hire. In the 1920’s it became a storage warehouse and in more recent times, the building we are selling has been used as a Meeting Hall.


The property is on the corner of York Avenue and Windlesham Avenue which is over the road from St Ann’s Well Gardens a beautiful park extending to over 10 acres. This is close to the Seven Dials area and Brighton Station and also a comfortable walk away from the bustling city centre. Nearby Davigdor Road and Dyke Road are well served by regular bus services.


Kingdom Hall is arranged as a D1 meeting room on the ground floor with offices and a self-contained two bedroom flat on the first floor. Included within the freehold title, but sold off on long leases are 2 x 1 bedroom self-contained flats and a self-contained D1 basement room. All three leases are 125 years from 1st October 1987. The majority of the courtyard is included within the freehold title but cars can only be parked between 6pm and 8am.

Bedroom 1: 13’3 x 10’3 (4.04m x 3.12m)
Bedroom 2: 14’6 x 8’8 (4.43m x 2.64m)
Living room: 14’9 x 12’11 (4.50m x 3.94m)
Kitchen: 13’ x 5’3 (3.97m x 1.60m)


The adjacent building was recently converted from offices into 12 studios and 4 x 1 bedroom flats under applications BN2013/03635 and 02666 and BH2015/00060.

It is considered that this building, which is not listed nor in a conservation area, would be suitable for a similar conversion (STNC) or continue in its present format under use class D1 with ancillary office and residential space.

The entrance from York Avenue is for the exclusive use of Kingdom Hall and this provides further development potential if the building was extended (STNC).
