A very rare opportunity to purchase this wonderful landmark building, St Thomas of Canterbury Church. Listed as a building of local importance' it was built in the 1930s with the founding stone being cemented in place in December 1937 by Father Barnaby, which remains in place today. The current owner acquired the building after the church ceased activity in 2002 and sympathetically converted the church in 2008.
The Tower House as it is now known today is one half of this superb church conversion offering wonderful volume, proportions and light. Situated on the ground floor offering a wonderful entertaining space is the main reception area which incorporates the original Nave and Altar and with its domed ceiling makes for an excellent dining area. Off the main reception is a modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and granite work tops. Bedroom three/study is also located on the ground floor as well as a bathroom. Upstairs on the first floor is access to the bell tower which once climbed provides outstanding 360 degree views of the surrounding city and countryside. The main bedroom is of generous proportions with vaulted ceilings and an ensuite bathroom. Bedroom two is also a good size double bedroom. Outside there is off street parking at the rear and a lawned front garden with seating area.
