St Thomas More Church and Presbytery is being offered for an alternative use by our Leeds office acting on behalf of the Diocese of Leeds after a pastoral review.
Located in a residential area, the church was built between 1955-6 to cater for the spiritual needs of the expanding Catholic community after large populations were moved to the newly built Chickenley estate following slum clearances in Dewsbury.
Built into a sloping site, the church is predominately single-storey with brick elevations and has a club room, kitchen and bar the lower ground floor. With a floor area of 5,253 sq ft in total, the church sits on a half-acre site and fronts Maple Road and Chickenley Lane.
The spacious accompanying stone-built presbytery has two double and two single bedrooms, as well as a garage and gardens to the front and rear of the property. It is offered for sale on a freehold basis, with offers invited from prospective purchasers.
Richard Corby, Director in our Leeds office, commented: “Subject to the appropriate planning permissions, the building is ideal for a range of commercial uses, or perhaps a lifestyle business with an artistic bent? Refurbished, the building will once again come to life and prove a real asset to the local community.”
