160 year old gothic chapel up for rent as offices

A unique, gothic revival chapel designed and built in the 1850s and listed among the finest buildings in Leicestershire is available to let for only the third time in its 160 year history.

Chapel House on Leicester Road, one of the most recognisable buildings in Loughborough, is available for use as offices, or for similar business use, offering a commanding and attractive situation just inside the entrance to the town’s old Victorian cemetery.

Described by celebrated architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as “unsurpassed by any other building erected for the same purpose in the kingdom,” in his 1960 book Buildings of Leicestershire and Rutland, this former chapel was restored and modernised at the end of the last century after falling into disrepair.

Alex Reid, Commercial Property Director of Mather Jamie, said, “Chapel House is a truly special building, a unique Loughborough property, spoken of highly by Pevsner himself.

“Its restoration using traditional materials makes it an historic gem with completely modern features, including gas central heating and underfloor heating, up to fifty phone lines and high speed internet capability, fitted carpets and double glazing, interior insulation, plus remotely monitored CCTV and fire and smoke alarms.”
