Partnership House is located next to St Chad's, Rochdale's Parish Church
A historic 300-year-old building in Rochdale town centre is up for sale.
Grade-II* listed Partnership House, the former vicarage of the medieval gothic St Chad’s Church, dates back to 1724 and is set in its own 1.07 acres of private grounds and gardens.
Located within the Rochdale town centre conservation area on Sparrow Hill, close to Broadfield Park and Rochdale Town Hall, the historic property is detailed as ‘a fine example of Georgian architecture with many internal and external features’.
Originally built for the Reverend Samuel Dunster (1675-1754), the eye-catching design was based on a similar house in London.
The building was acquired by Rochdale Borough Council from the Church Commissioners for England in 2004, although, over the years, has had several occupiers, most recently being used as offices for the Council Voluntary Service (CVS).
Built in the 18th century, the property was extended in 1820 and in 1990, although it is now in need of refurbishment and upgrading.
The building with attic has various potential uses and, subject to planning consent, these could include residential, offices, tourism, or hospitality.
It is on sale for £425,000 with a 125 or 150-year lease and is described as ‘a unique landmark development opportunity, suitable for ‘conversion to residential, commercial or mixed use.’
