Features and description

  • Freehold
Sizeable, detached church building situated in the centre of Lerwick.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and currently comprises the main 14m x 8m church hall / meeting room and a disabled WC downstairs, plus a second meeting room (8m x 8m), with an office, a kitchen, a store room and WC upstairs.

There is also a boiler room accessed via a separate door.

The building is assumed to have Class 10 (Non-residential Institutions) use and could therefore in addition to religious use, potentially be used as a crèche, nursery, gallery, exhibition hall or similar. It may also suit other uses including possibly residential although this would be subject to the usual consents required and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

General Information
The building is situated off Bank Lane in the Lerwick Conservation Area close to The Hillhead. The original stone-built part is understood to date from around 1900. The later extension is of concrete block construction.

The Rateable Value is currently be £5,400. Prospective purchasers should however contact Shetland Islands Council directly for confirmation.

The property is being sold in its current condition. No warranties will be given in respect of any contents or services.

The gross internal floor area is estimated to extend to around 279m² or thereby, entry being via double doors which open to a large double height entrance hall entrance area with under stairs store and WC on the left, door to the meeting room ahead, and stair to the left to the first floor.

The main meeting room / hall is a substantial space with two windows to Hangcliff Lane (and two further windows blocked up), one window to the north, and double doors at the far end to the outside space. There is a lift in one corner although this is currently not working.

The stairs lead up past one of the WC’s to the first floor where a large open space with wash hand basin and access to the loft leads to a second meeting room, an office, kitchen & store.

The second meeting room is another large space with windows to the three sides, the higher level ones at the far end enjoying views over the surrounding area across the sound to Bressay. A run of fitted cupboard units provide storage.

The office has windows to the side and rear of the building, whilst the large kitchen has extensive modern fitted units including a double sink. (The cooker and fridges are not included in the sale).

At the ground floor level to the right of the entrance and accessed via a separate door, is a boiler room housing the central heating boiler, hot water tank and oil tank. The central heating boiler is not in working order and would require attention.
