A former Methodist Church with alternative use potential

Originally dating back to the late 19th century with a substantial addition in the 1960s, this now redundant Methodist Church extends to over 2,800 sq ft (260 sq m) and offers the opportunity to develop for alternative use (subject to Planning Permission). Dovercourt is a small seaside town adjacent to Harwich and some 19 miles from Colchester, it offers a range of amenities and rail links to London Liverpool Street Station. The property comprises two separate buildings, the original Victorian church with worship and congregation rooms together with a function hall of over 1,000 sq ft (93 sq m) with kitchen and WC facilities, there are gardens to the side and rear with potential for off road parking (stpp). An exciting opportunity which is sure to generate considerable developer interest.
