An interesting piece of B.C. real estate has come up for sale in the form of a converted church in Nanaimo.
Zoned as Community Service 1, it's eligible to be used as a Single Residential Dwelling. Other permitted uses for this type of property include using it as a cemetery, a library, museum, and various others.
It has a total square footage of 3,761 sq ft. It's listed for $850,000 and is assessed at $680,000.
The main floor is essentially a venue, complete with stage and overlooking mezzanine. It also has a recording room and several offices and storage spaces.
The basement is 1,000 sq ft and has a primary bedroom and washroom, and two other small rooms which could also be used as bedrooms.
Built in 1947, in the 1970s it operated as the Christian Fellowship Centre. In the 1980s the Glad Tidings Church ran out of the space, in the 1990s the Nanaimo Youth Services Association, and an organization called United Native Nations ran it as a hall in the early 2000s. More recently a company called Castle Multimedia occupied it.
