The Former St. David's is a magnificent Grade II Listed Church with Bell Tower built in 1888 by Sir Arthur Blomfield, an architect of London at an original cost of £8,000 in an early English Gothic style and initially intended as a church for the railway community. The church demonstrates a dedication of skilled workmanship throughout, both to the exterior and interior. The church retains its original features with its imposing brick interior, vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows which provide much a feast for the eyes, especially when the sun pours in from morning through afternoon. There is also a lower ground level with numerous rooms, all of a good size - please note the floorplan for a general overview. The church stands on a generous plot and resides just off Caernarfon Road which affords excellent access for the city centre and A55 expressway. The property currently falls within planning use D1 of the Use Classes Order. Alternative uses may be possible, subject to planning permission and Listed Building Consent. Prospective purchasers must make their own enquiries with the local planning authority if they wish to consider any changes to the use of the building.
