THE PROPERTY This is an important listed property, occupying a very prominent position, close to the centre of Wiltshire's county town of Trowbridge.

The buildings which date from the late 19th Century with later additions are traditional in style and enjoy a site with two vehicular access points from Church Street, close to the town centre, on a site of approximately 1.1 acres.

The Church itself was used as a place of worship until recently, together with other community halls having similar uses. A number of the buildings have already been used as offices and there are traditional period cottages.

A detailed planning permission has now been granted, permitting the conversion of all of the ancillary buildings to produce 20 flats and maisonettes, for the main church itself to be converted into a single residential property and the original cottages and offices to be converted into 3 houses and 2 flats.

The overall scheme consented will provide 26 self-contained residential units with car parking, a total of some 2,275 sq.m (24,500 sq.ft) accommodation. 

LOCATION Trowbridge is the county town of Wiltshire and has an excellent range of retail, commercial, leisure and educational facilities. This property is of course situated at its heart. The town also has a mainline railway station, with direct links to Bath and Bristol and onto London Paddington.

It is located just 3 miles off the A350, leading to Chippenham and the M4 motorway to the north and Warminster to the south.

The town Is rapidly expanding and is becoming a very popular residential location as well as a busy commercial centre, buildings of this size and quality rarely come to the market.
