Phase one of the redevelopment of the Welsh Presbyterian Church in Waterloo is now complete with six stunning apartments and townhouses now available to buy.
Building contractor, Frank Rogers has completed all construction and restoration works at the church on behalf of sister company FR Developments.
The stunning new homes include three apartments (one two-bed and two one-bed) and three, three-bedroom townhouses. Interest in the conversion has been strong from the outset.
Frank Rogers Managing Director, Dean Rogers said: “This scheme has been a challenging one largely due to our aims in preserving and restoring the church’s many original features and character. We’ve seen lots of interest in this project from people both locally and from outside the area. Lots of visitors have asked to look round but we’ve been reluctant to open the doors until completion.
“We recognise the importance of this building and in particular its location within Waterloo, sitting on the main stretch between Crosby and the city centre. We believe that the scheme will hold strong appeal due to its location and the various styles and sizes of homes we have available, all of which are now on the market and ready for viewings.”
The church has been modified extensively to ensure it’s suitable for modern day living, adding insulation to create a comfortable environment. In term of restoration, staircases have been introduced including an original that was removed, repaired and reintroduced. Repairs to the external facade, including the church tower, have been carried out using a traditional lime render system whilst original windows have been preserved and repaired using traditional lead techniques.
“I’m incredibly proud of the completed project – it’s wonderful to be able to walk around the church and consider the state of the building when we first purchased it and look at the transformation now. It’s a stunning building that has undoubtedly been given a new lease of life.”
