An outstanding opportunity to acquire a substantial church with ancillary halls in a favoured South West London location - considered suitable for either its continued use (primarily class F1 but with ancillary F2), or alternatively offering significant potential for redevelopment (subject to obtaining the necessary consents) for a variety of uses including residential, retirement living, health care, care home, child care or educational purposes.

The property is prominently located on the northeastern side of Weir Road within the Clapham Park area of Balham, to the south of Clapham Common and to the north of Balham High Street and Balham Railway mainline. Tooting and the open spaces of Tooting Common are situated to the south. Balham main line station (approximately 0.8 miles) offers a regular commuter service into London Victoria with a journey time of approximately 14 minutes. Clapham South underground station (Northern Line) is within a similar distance. There are a number of local bus routes that serve the area. Balham High Street is within walking distance and offers a comprehensive range of shops, bars and restaurants.

The property comprises a 1970's single-storey former church and hall complex arranged as 2 main halls (including one with a significant floor to ceiling height), 2 smaller halls and further ancillary rooms, Kitchens (2), WCS, offices and ample storage. The building's footprint covers much of the site although the building benefits from outside space to the front, sides and rear.

In all the building extends to approximately 7,799 sq. ft/724.6 sq. m.

The site extends to approximately 0.311 acres/0.125 hectares.

The property lies within the jurisdiction of the London Borough of Lambeth. No formal or informal approaches have been made of the Local Authority and interested parties should make their own enquiries. The property has previously been used for religious worship, together with a range of community uses, and a children's day nursery.

The Opportunity
For owner occupiers and especially those wishing to continue to use it for religious worship and other institutional/community-based uses, 35 Weir Road offers the opportunity to acquire a prominently located, substantial and very flexible freehold building, situated in a popular southwest London address.

Alternatively, the site (subject to obtaining the necessary consents) offers an exciting opportunity for redevelopment, for either its existing use, or a variety of alternative uses, including residential.

An indicative massing and feasibility study has been prepared by MAA Architects and which is available to download from the Micro-Site. Whilst this is entirely illustrative, (and which has not been discussed with the Local Planning Authority), the envisaged scheme proposes a community/ institutional use on the ground floor and with five further floors of residential above it arranged as 36 x 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments. Any scheme will need to respect the immediate built environment as well as National, London-wide and adopted Lambeth planning policy including the provision of affordable housing, the payment of the Community Infrastructure Levy (Lambeth and Mayoral CIL).

The property is held Freehold with Title absolute. The property is currently the subject to a number of short-term hires (licence agreements) that expire at the end of April 2023. The property will be sold with full vacant possession.

The property is connected to all mains services, but purchasers should make their own enquires as to their adequacy for their intended use of the property.

Method of Sale
The property is to be sold via an informal tender on a bid date to be advised. Bids will be considered on an unconditional basis only. Given the Vendor's charitable status, claw back provisions will be included as part of the sale contract.

The property is not elected for VAT.
