No-frills 1970s church seeks salvation from new buyer

A Salvation Army church that was built in the 1970s is on the market and one thing is certain – whoever buys the building will change it.

The property is one of the few ugly ducklings in Bowral’s picturesque historic precinct and offers investors a plethora of commercial and residential development opportunities.

Selling agent Sarah Wotton, of Highlands Property, said investors would need to look beyond the no-frills guise.

“It’s an interesting property because it’s unlikely anyone will keep it the way it is so it will be transformed because it’s in an excellent location in a very pretty area just a street away from the CBD,” Wotton said.

“Potential buyers showing interest, from local business owners and investors to speculators, all have very different ideas of what they want this building to be for them.”

The double-brick structure on 1067 square metres is zoned B4 Mixed Use. Some of the developments allowed include shop-top residential, commercial premises, childcare centres, entertainment outlets and medical centres.

The property is in Bowral’s heritage conservation area with council approval overlaying its use. The property is in Bowral’s heritage conservation area with council approval overlaying its use.
