AN old St Asaph chapel will go up for auction later this month.
Rhuallt Chapel, Chapel House and Hall, St Asaph (pictured right) are being auctioned by Davis Meade Property Consultants in conjunction with Clough and Co at the Brookhouse Mill in Denbigh on Monday, May 14.
The property, which has a guide price of £130,000 - £180,000, includes the two-bedroom Chapel House, adjoining chapel and former school room located within the outskirts of Rhuallt Village some 2.5 miles from St Asaph which has potential for upgrading or re-development.
“This is a great opportunity to acquire a property of unique character in a pleasant setting in well proportioned grounds of about 0.28 acre that can be redeveloped and extended,” said Eifion Bibby of Davis Meade Property Consultants.
The chapel, believed to have been built around 1835, has a vestibule which leads to the principal internal accommodation (10.92m by 8.55m approximately).
The adjoining chapel house has a kitchen, living/dining room and sitting room on the ground floor and two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.
Abutting the chapel house is the Hall consisting of a large principal school room, former games room, kitchen and external toilet.
A guide price of £9,000-£10,000 per acre has also been put on a 21.19 acre block of productive agricultural land, which is also available at the auction.
Situated just under a mile from Pwllglas and two miles from Ruthin, the land was formerly part of Pen y Gaer.
A second land parcel on offer on the night is some four miles from Denbigh at Ty Mawr, Groes.
This agricultural parcel totals 31.10 acres or thereabouts and has a guide price of £5,000 - £7,000 per acre.
“There has not been much agricultural land coming onto the open market, as yet, in the locality, this Spring and both of these lots are useful , compact blocks which are
expected to create significant interest,” said Mr Bibby.
