UP FOR SALE: The Old Rectory, Workington

The 15th century building, on Dora Crescent, is grade-two listed and is owned by Allerdale council.

Offers are invited over £185,000 and the council said it could be converted back into a house, subject to obtaining planning consents.

Councillor Barbara Cannon, of Allerdale council, said: “As a local authority we are committed to obtaining best value for assets.

“The Old Rectory is now surplus to council requirements and in order to deliver the best return, in the short and longer term, to council tax and business ratepayers, it is necessary to sell it.”

It was once the rectory for the nearby St Michael’s Church but was taken over by the council which used it as a homeless hostel for more than 20 years.

More recently it was used as offices by a local charity.

Allerdale council refurbished the building in 2007. It said the Old Rectory retained many traditional features, including stone mullioned windows.

The building has planning consent for use as offices and has 2,400sq ft of office space on two floors.
