A Baptist chapel in Brooke went under the hammer at auction today for £189,000, over the guide price of £125,000-£150,000.
The chapel on High Green was built in 1831 and has the potential to be converted into a number of alternative uses including commercial and residential subject to the necessary consents.
The owners, the Baptist Trust, wanted to establish the market value for this unique building and it generated significant interest and with a number of bidders at the Auction House sale, it finally sold for £189,000.
Robert Hurst, chartered surveyor and auction manager said: “We are delighted with the results of our first Norwich auction of the year. It raised nearly £3.5 million of land and property sold.”
