Church Holbeach 3

St Matthews Chapel, Holbeach, Spalding, Lincolnshire.

An unusual opportunity to acquire a church that up until recently had Planning Permission granted for conversion to a detached residential dwelling. This permission has lapsed through the natural passage of time. However, it is anticipated that renewal should not be too much of a problem.

The former chapel is set in a rural location, with approximately 1.25 acres of land and has fabulous views across farmland. The original Planning Permission was for conversion to a 2/3 bedroom property with open plan living/dining/kitchen area with a mezzanine. All original features including windows and pulpit can be seen in situ and are included with the sale of the building. Viewing welcome.

 Church Holbeach 7

 St Matthews Chapel, Holbeach, Spalding, Lincolnshire.

Brief History:-

This delightful detached Victorian Church is set in a rural location and dates to Circa 1869. The stunning original vaulted ceiling is still in place, as is the pulpit. This church is also quite unusual, as most rural Anglican churches had adjoining graveyards or burial sites, making them far less desirable, but this property does not have any lairs.
