  • Far reaching open views
Unique opportunity to acquire a Grade B Listed former church building offering an excellent development opportunity with Planning Permission granted to convert to a five-bedroom home

The B Listed church building dates back to 1792 when it was rebuilt on an existing site re-using the bellcote of 1643. The bell is cast by Peter Jansen and dates to 1645. The church has now been granted planning consent to convert to a five-bedroom home.

The current owners have stripped back the property and the previous owner replaced the entire roof (under separate planning permission) making the church ready for the next steps in development.

There is provision for roadside parking and a parcel of ground which can be a garden. There is also the option to purchase unused church land from the council.

The church enjoys far reaching open views from its elevated position.

Planning Permission was granted by Aberdeenshire Council in 2016 under Application No. APP/2016/0988 for a four/five-bedroom property over three floors extending to approximately 275 sq.m. (2,994 sq.ft.). As there has been a meaningful start, this planning is now locked in.

    OnTheMarket may have applied supplementary data to this property listing, including:

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
