The 117-year-old building, complete with a north-west tower complete with terracotta spire, maintains its original character in its current state, with 20th century glazed doors, a galleried nave with transepts and a parlour.
Towards the east end of the building, the church is split into two storeys, and features an 8-light rose window to the organ loft. The property also comes with a car park, which is enclosed with iron railings and gates.
The church, which is listed locally on the Stockport Historic Environment Database, is in the heart of residential area Cheadle Heath and is less than two miles from Stockport town centre.
Pictures show the current design is for the building to still be used as for its original purpose as a church, with original wooden pews and beams. The plot, which measures 0.189 acres in total, is situated on the corner of Stockport Road and Myrtle Street.
It is described as having a set of original fittings including the pine pews, pine organ case and cast-iron pendant light fittings.
In the property description, Bruton Knowles say: “The Methodist church was built in 1905 in the gothic-style of hard red brick laid in Flemish bond, with terracotta dressings, and a Westmorland slate roof with ceramic ridge cresting. The church has a west entrance, north-west tower, galleried nave with transepts, east vestries and parlour.
“The west elevation has a pair of gabled porches with pointed arches and 20th century glazed doors and a 4-light traceried decorated window above. The tower has a short terracotta broach spire with angle buttresses and lancets.
“The interior retains a good set of fittings including pitch pine pews, matching pine organ case in arched organ loft and cast-iron gothic-style pendant light fittings which may be original. The west entrance lobby has a tiled floor and a pair of stone staircases with cast-iron balustrades leading to the pine panelled gallery with late 20th century glazed screen.”
