Building Faith in the Future
Lodestone appointed to oversee the sale of one of Wells' most historic religious buildings
When Lodestone launched in 2016, little did we know that just three years' later we'd be given the honour of marketing one of the Church's most loved buildings in Wells - The Old Deanery.
Last year, the owners, the Diocese of Bath and Wells, who use the building for their administrative staff, took the decision to relocate these offices more centrally. They therefore took the decision to sell The Old Deanery to fund their move and in January 2019 announced that we had been appointed to oversee the sale, working alongside the commercial arm of Carter Jonas.
We couldn't be more pleased to be trusted with this sale, as we understand the fondness it evokes in Wells' residents (as is evident by the fact it made the front page of the local newspaper). We're also aware of the importance of finding the right buyer. Said Cathy Morris-Adams, one of our managing partners: Cathy Morris of Lodestone Property adds, “Lodestone is delighted to be the appointed agent for the sale of The Old Deanery. Our team takes its responsibilities with regards to the sale of this prestigious building very seriously and we welcome discussions with the local community.”
