**FOR SALE BY WAY OF BEST BIDS DATED FRIDAY 9 MARCH 2018** Former church premises at Chapel Row, Dinas Powys, Vale of Glamorgan. Potentially suitable for residential re-development, subject to planning.

Burnett Davies with Easton have been appointed by
The Trustees of the Methodist Church of Great Britain to dispose of the Eastbrook Methodist Church.

The property, located at Chapel Row, Dinas Powys CF64 4LE has become surplus to the Church's requirements.

The plot has an approximate frontage of 13.6m and a depth of 17.5m.

The total area is therefore approximately 238 sq m (0.05 acres or thereabouts).

The site can be found outlined in red on the attached ordnance survey extract.

The building comprises a detached single storey church building which was first registered in 1887 as a church.

The building has a pitched roof, with timber roof trusses, overlaid with corrugated asbestos profile steel cladding with profiled clad walls and timber framed windows.

There is a small front fenced garden area and concrete steps rising to the single storey porch.

Internally, the main body of the building is laid out as a meeting hall with side windows and tongue and grooved panelled walls, suspended timber floor.

At the rear of the meeting hall lies a stage area with kitchen and a single storey side addition which provides a further meeting area.

The property has a single WC behind the kitchen area.

To the northern side of the building there is a strip of land accessing an enclosed rear area.

The main parts of the property are as follows:

o Front entrance porch 1.9 sq m
o Main hall area 46.9 sq m
o Rear storage area (with side kitchen) 31.8 sq m
o Side former classroom area 26.3 sq m
o Corner unisex toilet 3.3 sq m

Total gross internal area 110.4 sq m (1,188 sq ft)

Building plot 238 sq m (0.05 acres or thereabouts)

All mains services are connected.

There are old gas-fired heaters in situ (not tested).

The property is surrounded by residential properties.

There is a reasonable chance therefore that residential use would be forthcoming for the site - possibly a small flat development or a single dwelling for example.

Interested parties should however make their own enquiries of the Local Authority, The Vale of Glamorgan County Borough Council.

As it stands, we understand that the property has an existing use for D1 (Non-residential Institutions) purposes.

This would include clinics, health centres, crches, day nurseries, day centres, schools, art galleries (other than

education and training centres.

The property is available to purchase on a freehold basis at a guide price of £85,000 (eighty five thousand pounds).
