Lot 3 Alves Church
Located adjacent is the attractive, former Parish Church with a paddock area (used historically as vegetable plots) located opposite. Alves Church dates from 1769 and is grade B listed. Planning consent and building warrant has also been obtained to convert the church into a stunning detached dwelling house with interesting and well laid out accommodation provided over two storeys. The proposed accommodation includes a hall, living room, family dining room, breakfasting kitchen, utility, bathroom and 4 bedrooms (3 en suite). Should the building be converted, access will be taken along a private driveway running alongside that to be created and serving the steading adjacent with a garden area located to the front and side of the building.
From Elgin in the east, take the A96 towards Forres. At the village of Alves, turn right at the Crooked Inn and continue along a single carriageway unclassified road for about ½ mile where The Anchorage, Steading and Church are located on the left hand side.
The Anchorage together with Alves Parish Church and The Steading are grade B listed.
PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT
Planning and listed building consents have been obtained for the conversion of the steading (ref 10/00767/APP, dated 13th May 2014) and Alves Church (ref 11/00070 APP, dated 13th May 2014) into high quality, interestingly designed detached residential dwellings.
The Anchorage and in particular the wooded grounds and outbuildings would lend themselves to the conversion and establishment of a leisure / tourist related business such as holiday cottages, glamping etc. Such use would be subject to consent, but is supportive of the current Moray Local Development Plan policies.
