About this property

  • Dating back to 1900 and originally the chapel of the village, The Old Chapel has been transformed over the years into a contemporary delight. Converted to a residential property in 2015 this impressive home provides spacious, light and versatile accommodation over three floors. This lovely period, detached home has been well maintained and beautifully presented with lots to offer.

    The entrance hall sets precedence for the whole house with its welcoming feel, stylish, high ceilings and plenty of light. There is also a downstairs cloakroom.

    The sitting room has a warm and cosy feel with double aspect, providing plenty of light. There is still a wealth of charm with an exposed stone wall, beautiful wooden flooring, and a brick fireplace with log burner.

    The kitchen is open plan with modern fixtures and fittings including a Rangemaster, built in dishwasher and microwave, marble work surfaces and breakfast bar. There is generous room for a dining table and even a sofa area providing a comfortable snug, making it the perfect social environment and heart of the home. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with space for more white goods and storage and a door leading to the garden.

    On the first floor is a spacious guest suite with dual aspect allowing plenty of light to flood the room. There is also a charming statement stone wall. Leading off is a modern en suite with shower. There are two further double bedrooms, one currently being used as a reading room with its idyllic large window, the other with timber beams, lower-level window and wonderful coloured glass window. There is also a family bathroom. On the second floor is the principal suite. An impressive room with a vaulted ceiling, storage in the eaves and en suite shower room. There is a further bedroom which could have many possibilities and is currently being used as a home office.

    Outside the garden was redesigned and landscaped in 2021 by the renowned designer James Alexander-Sinclair. Making the most of the space, the garden has been made into an oasis. A peaceful setting, one of the key elements of the garden is the installation of a complete ‘green wall' with self-watering water trickle system throughout. There is also an idyllic water feature, and various seating areas, including a decking with a front lighting system and even space for a firepit, making for a private and relaxed social space to be enjoyed with alfresco dining and entertaining. To the front is also a delightful, gravelled garden and a paved driveway with off road parking.

The Old Chapel is utterly charming. I love the way it has a wonderfully stylish feel and is a complete haven for light. To top it off, the garden is a complete oasis designed by one of the worlds most foremost garden designers!
