This is an old Catholic Church moved to this site about 1910 and was used by the community until 2005.The building is in average condition for it age.It is no longer required by the owner and it would be good to see it go to a new home.
The pews are not included in the auction as the Parishioners of the Church were invited to take these at the Deconsecration Mass of the Church.
The exterior is roughcast plaster over timber frame. There are 4 arch doors, 3 of which are interior and wooden, and one you can see leading outside.
Inside there is a small vestment room, and confession room. The floor and roof (above the false ceiling) is wooden T and G - initially thought it was matai, but on closer inspection it appears to be cedar. The presidery chairs, altar and reading stand can be included with the sale if requested.
Our intention was to renovate the Church into our home, but owing to its condition (some bora and dry rot) , to change the status of it into a "Dwelling" (DCC Building Regulations), it was going to prove far more costly than we originally anticipated.
However, approximately 2 years ago, it was inspected by a House Removal Company who confirmed that the Church was able to be removed and transported from the site.
For those who are seriously considering the possibility of purchasing the church, we would strongly recommend viewing prior to bidding to avoid any disappointment or confirm expectations! :)
