Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Strathpeffer Free Church occupies an outstanding position within the Conservation Area of one of Strathpeffers's most admired locations on the Eastern side of the village. The Church is B Listed and the sale of the property is likely to attract buyers from both the residential and commercial markets due to the flexibility of the accommodation and further development potential, subject to the appropriate planning permissions.

We have been advised by the Highland Council's Conservation Officer that there will be significant constraints to convert the church into a residential property. These include Planning Permission, Listed Building Consent and a building warrant.

The main walls are of traditional stonework under a pitched roof clad in slate and date back to the late 1800s. The Church is entered via an entrance vestibule which forms the lower level of the bell tower. This leads into the main body of the church with American pitch pine pews in traditional church formation and stained glass windows to each elevation. There is a kitchen with wc and a large church hall on the lower level. A spiral staircase leads to the upper seating area and a small office.

Strathpeffer is an enchanting Victorian Spa village only 5 miles away from the market town of Dingwall. The village itself owes its growth to the discovery in the 1700's of sulphurous springs purported to be the most healthy in the UK and this led to a steady stream of visitors from around Europe and beyond. The original Spa pavilion within the village has been restored and now serves as a multi purpose venue for a variety of events. The village itself is very picturesque and although the buildings have a wide variety of styles, all exude a no expense spared solidity that says much about the largely Victorian origins and about the wealth of the town at that time. There are a host of activities available nearby including hillwalking, mountain biking, fishing and golfing and there is a primary school, health centre, chemist, café and other facilities all available within the village. Inverness is very much the commercial and business centre for the Highlands of Scotland and is convenient for the Airport which is located to the East of the city. The airport provides a variety of domestic and European flights. Inverness also has excellent public transport links with good bus and rail connections.

The church grounds extend to circa 0.25 acres and have open aspects to the front. They are bounded with hedgerows to one side and to the other there is an open area of land with further development potential subject to planning.
