The former offices have now been turned back into two spacious and energy efficient homes for social rent – its original residential use.

The conversion work has been done by Campion Homes.

Originally built in 1906, the large two storey sandstone building once served as the Manse for the now demolished West Parish Church in Cowdenbeath.

Kingdom bought the property in 1989 and it was home to many teams for 30 years before being vacated in January 2019.

The new homes will also contribute to the Rapid Rehousing Plans in Fife and provide much needed housing for homeless families.

Bill Banks, Kingdom Group chief executive said, “Although its days as an office have now gone, I was really keen that we didn’t lose it completely and that’s why we decided to convert it back to housing.”
