Charming Georgian Chapel with planning permission for residential conversion.

The Chapel is a rare opportunity to acquire a Landmark Grade II Listed Georgian Chapel, in the historic market town of Harleston. Offering an abundance of space and character with a stunning open plan reception area. The property dates back to 1819 and was designed by the acclaimed architect Edward Boardman.

The Architect’s designs would create 3,278sqft of internal space, with four double bedrooms. Each with en-suite bathrooms, an impressive open plan reception/kitchen/dining room with exceptional ceiling heights, media-room, study, utility room, spacious courtyard garden and ample parking.

Entering through the oak double doors and through the vestibule, the Chapel opens out into a large impressive space filled with light. The wooden and ornate tiled floors are complemented by a high ceiling and plentiful light from the large windows. There are a number of historically interesting features including an ornate cast iron balustrade. To the side is the Vestry which would, house the utility room and the bicycle store.

The Chapel is not assessed for Rates and because of the Grade II Listing an EPC is not required.

N.B. It should also be noted there is no graveyard at the Chapel.


Three new double doors will lead onto the south west facing rear court yard garden. The Chapel shares its access to the right side through the Vestry with the Sunday School. To the front of the Chapel there is currently parking for one vehicle and a brick plinth wall with wrought iron railings to mark the boundary. There is permission to remove this wall to create the larger parking area along the front of the Chapel.

Planning Permission

This unique building is available freehold, giving the new owner a blank canvass to create their own Grand Design. The Chapel recently gained full planning permission for the conversion into a stunning modern home, from South Norfolk District Council Reference 2019/0619 and 2019/0480
