St Leonards Church
The former Church of St Leonard is a Grade II* Listed Church of character which is offered for sale with the ability to provide direct vehicular access from Main street, off street parking and private amenity land, subject to all consents and approvals. The property underwent a significant programme of maintenance in 2008 & 11 and is in very good condition.
Since closure, it has been used for private use for sporting and social activities by the owners who reside at the adjacent property, Chestnut Barn, which is also for sale. At a gross internal area of c1,600 sq ft the property is ideally sized for a number of alternative uses, subject to all statutory consents and approvals, and the seller is prepared to share the outcome of pre-application enquiries. Drawings and further details are also available on request.
The property nestles within the hamlet of Ragnall lying on the south side of the A57. This means the property is connected to an excellent road network with the A1 lying to the west from which the wider motorway network is available. Both Retford and Newark have direct rail services into London Kings Cross (from Newark approx. 1hr 20 mins). Air travel is convenient via international airports of Doncaster Sheffield and Nottingham East Midlands. The cathedral city of Lincoln lies within comfortable driving distance over the River Trent. The property also lies within the catchment area of Tuxford Academy, an Ofsted Outstanding school and 6th form, with a primary school and local amenities within a 20-minute walk.
It is highly unusual for a redundant church of manageable size, in good condition, with access, parking and garden land available. This represents a unique lifestyle and investment opportunity for those looking for a unique development project.
