Property: Drumbeg Church Hall comes with permission to be converted to a residential dwelling

Beulah-Anne Sinton

Are you inspired by Channel 4’s Grand Designs? Like thousands before you, do you long for a special renovation project of your own?

Something that you can really stick your teeth into all while letting your imagination run wild and creating a vision for the future - something that is truly yours and will endure for generations.

It’s certainly a romantic idea but in reality it takes a lot of time and importantly, a lot of money. Ambitious building projects and renovations can have hidden dangers while difficulties surrounding planning permission can soon thwart your grand ideas.

If you want to put your own stamp on a project that has lots of character, without a lot of the hassle, then this property, formerly Drumbeg Church Hall, might just be for you.

A beautiful red brick property, the hall is set on 0.3 acres of land and is currently extended to approximately 2,600sqft. It has full planning permission to be converted to a residential dwelling. 

The renowned Coogan and Co Architects have secured planning to convert the hall into a stunning four bedroom detached home. Meanwhile the hall also has planning approval for refurbishing and extending to a larger hall, which would suit a commercial project such as an office or coffee shop. 

It’s worth noting that although the hall enjoys plenty of historical appeal, there are no historical listings allowing for a much more straightforward project.

The hall is somewhat of a local landmark used for a variety of purposes including fitness classes, charity functions and community events. However the person who buys this property is free to begin an exciting new chapter in its history. They can create a stunning family dwelling in a popular area that’s close to both Belfast and Lisburn. From here you can enjoy walks in Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park and golf at Malone Golf Club and Laganview Golf Centre. Numerous schools are nearby along with top sporting facilities and a wealth of shops, restaurants and cafes. 

The property currently sprawls 2,600sqft, however planning permission will allow for 3,000sqft. It also has the advantage of oil fired central heating and uPVC double glazed windows.

There’s also room for plenty of parking outside. 

This is truly a unique opportunity to acquire an interesting, yet equally practical, renovation project. And as the planning permission has already been secured, you can forget about some of the cumbersome paperwork and get straight down to the business of creating your dream family home.
