THE price of an "attractive" former chapel with redevelopment potential in a busy Herefordshire street has been slashed.

The freehold building, which dates from the mid-19th century, has been on the market with agents Sunderlands for some time, and was previously listed at £175,000.

The asking price has now been reduced to £155,000.

The agents said the building, which has good frontage to Burgess Street in Leominster, has planning permission for upper-floor residential conversion, offers redevelopment potential, and is available with vacant possession.


Internally, the two-storey Old Chapel features a staff kitchen, utility room, store, and toilet facilities on the ground floor, and a large open retail or salon area on the upper mezzanine level.

There is also a rear consulting room, small office, and toilet on the upper level, Sunderlands said.

The agents said the property is well-presented with plastered walls, exposed beams, and laminate flooring.

Outside, the former chapel has a pitched slate roof and roundheaded windows to the front.

Sunderlands said there is a traditionally-constructed single-storey addition to the rear.
