Buy this Ashcroft church for less than a condo in Kamloops or the Okanagan
You'd have trouble finding a condo in Kelowna or Kamloops for $400,000 but you can get yourself a 5,000-square-foot historic church in downtown Ashcroft for a mere $329,000.
“Are you an entrepreneur with a creative side?” asks the listing by EXP Realty’s Casie Menhinick out of Kamloops. “Create your own 2/3 bedroom home on the upper level of the hall, develop a two-bedroom lower income helping suite below, and use the Church for your home-based business! WOW!
“Whether you are looking to start fresh with renovations or to embrace its historic charm - this could be your opportunity to make it happen!”
The church was built in 1892 as the Zion Presbyterian Church.
In 1925 it became the Zion United Church when it was joined by the Ashcroft Methodist Church and remained so until the end of last year when it was closed by Mount Paul United Church out of Kamloops.
The two buildings have a total of 5,000 square feet on .14 acres at 401 Bancroft St.
The church comes with a kitchen, hall with stage, daycare/Sunday school/meeting rooms, designated office spaces and two washrooms.
“This property provides a plethora of potential uses ranging from housing an investment property to setting up a not-for-profit society or even running a small home-based business,” the listing says.
