A converted former Methodist chapel in Shifnal which now provides commercial and residential accommodation has been sold to the Shropshire Football Association.
The county’s governing body for football intend to use the property at 21 High Street as its new administration centre, with an adjoining three-bedroom house to be let out as an investment.
Work will shortly begin to transform a current self-contained retail showroom, which extends to 629 sq ft, into new offices for the Shropshire FA.
Dave Simpson, chairman of the Shropshire Football Association, said: “We have two teams, a football development team which works out in the community, and the administration team, which is going to be based in Shifnal, so this will be our new administration centre.
“We will let out the three-bedroom house, so that will provide income for the Shropshire FA.”
The former Methodist chapel has been converted and adapted to provide the current retail showroom, with an attractive frontage, rear store room and toilet facilities.
The premises also benefits from forecourt parking, with access from High Street, and a private garage.
An attractive two-storey house, which provides well-appointed accommodation and includes entrance hallway, living room and fitted kitchen/dining room with separate toilet, is attached to the rear of the showroom.
The first floor provides three bedrooms and a separate bathroom, with the property set in its own mature spacious garden.
Toby Shaw, who handled the sale for Towler Shaw Roberts, said: “This represented an exciting opportunity to acquire a commercial and residential property prominently located fronting Shifnal’s High Street.
“The property has a very interesting history as a former Methodist chapel that’s been impressively converted.
“We are delighted to have completed a sale to the Shropshire Football Association after they identified the retail premises as suitable to become their new administration offices, with the residential property let as an investment.”
