Former Church building


A unique opportunity to purchase a former church building which has recently been granted outline planning consent for the demolition of the existing buildings and erection of 2 dwellings, together with associated works. The level site, which totals 0.21 acres, enjoys direct frontage to Victoria Road and currently houses a detached former church building which dates from the early 1940's of timber frame construction with prefabricated walls beneath a pitched corrugated sheet roof. The majority of the grounds are laid to shingle, with a brick paved path to the current building, and areas of grass to the rear. The property offers a wonderful development opportunity with the chance to create a pair of detached dwellings, close to the centre of the popular Suffolk market town of Diss.
