FULL PLANNING CONSENT obtained for:
* 3 LODGES for holiday let inmidst the trees of the lower part of the grounds, each one with its own open uninterrupted views towards either the east, the west or the north-west from its own extensive terrace
* Extensive & most attractive internal alterations within the church building as to end up with 9 bedrooms & 8 bathrooms (of which are 7 en suite) opening and converting the former space of the altar in the back of the church into a grand lounge/dining area with 2 stone steps again fully visible & with conversion of the vestry & minister toilet into a lovely kitchen with direct access to the garden...which extends the existing apartment nearly double in size!
--> alteration of the back stairwell into an open spiral staircase connecting ground floor, first floor & new converted 2nd mezzanine floor
--> conversion of a 2nd floor, 3rd level as mezzanine gallery to main lounge under the original church ceiling as to extend the spectacular main reception area (or for business purpose as to offer unique, spectacular space for bistro lounge/restaurant facilities)
...only by viewing someone would be able to fully appreciate & experience the huge potential within the already very attractive, existing framework & conversion for grand private use & most flexible business purpose...all alterations are on a financial level of realisation which is easy to manage & would hugely enhance the value of the property.
At the moment 'Lease-to-Buy'-agreements would be considered as to ease entry by potential new landlords of Urquhart Church being new in business and/or in need of a business loan; present owner would be more than happy to actively help to enter into the business and to back up promotion of business if required.
