Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Sight of Eternal Light Church has been a landmark in the Hackney community for decades and its steeple was used as a landmark for pilots in the Second World War. While any refurbishment will require patience and expertise it has the potential to be a fantastically impressive residential space. The ceilings of the main Church reach nearly 8 metres and the foot print amounts to a shade under 4,000 sq ft. It is Grade II listed and much of the building is protected to include the aforementioned steeple and the impressive altar. Other original features include the tin façade, the stained glass windows and the wooden and steel ceiling joists. The property is currently designated for commercial use but there is an appetite from the local authority to redevelop the Church as residential space to avoid it falling into disrepair. The most likely scenario would be as one single dwelling. It is unlikely that permission would be given for the church to be converted into multiple dwellings. This opportunity is ideal for any potential buyer looking to create a one of a kind home in a sought after area. The property comes with off street parking. All comments are opinion and any renovation is subject to the usual consents and approval.


Shurbland Road is located close to green space including London Fields and Lido as well as Hackney Downs and Victoria Park. Broadway Market and Mare Street provide ample amenities and some outstanding restaurants including Mare Street Market. Transport links can be found at Dalston Kingsland, Dalston Junction, Hackney Downs and Hackney Central stations.
