These are nothing, very unimpressive. Round my way they convert anything. Old farm buildings, little derelict chapels, railway houses, even odd bits of War Dept property left over from WWII.
The chapels are everywhere. They come on the market unconverted for under £100K with planning permission while the converted ones (3 or 4 bed) start around £150K and go up to £300K.
But there is a downside to occupying an old structure. I lived for two years in a part modernised 200-year farm cottage - plenty of rustic charm, nice and cool in Summer but near impossible to heat properly at this time of year.
