    About this property

    • A former Methodist church originally constructed in 1936, this charming property has been extensively improved over the years to create an unusual and characterful home. The attractive red brick home retains a number of original features, including a date plaque over the front door, including exposed beams and trusses supporting the high ceilings, though it has been given a thorough and high quality renovation with beautifully appointed rooms, solar-powered Velux windows and a Dolby cinema and projector and screen (available by separate negotiation). The main reception space is open plan and has a remote controlled pellet stove, in the original church hall, and is a cheery colourful space that's perfect for entertaining. There are a total of four double bedrooms, which could be changed to different uses if desired, plus a dedicated home working space.

      This very special home is deceptively spacious and offers approximately 3363 sq ft of living space. An entrance hall opens onto the main reception area and kitchen, off which there is a contemporary utility room, a pantry and a useful cloakroom with WC. Separately there is a formal dining room, a study and a ground floor shower room. There is also a bedroom with en suite facilities and an inbuilt steam room. Upstairs there are three good-size bedrooms, with one having a fitted dressing room and two benefit from en suites, one with freestanding bath and walk in shower.

      Externally the property boasts a Mediterranean-style garden with patterned Portuguese-style tiling, a covered lounge area and water features. An outdoor kitchen provides a great party space during the warmer months and there are a number of spaces for furniture. Though secluded, the garden offers lovely views of the village church. To the front there is access to a large garage,off-street parking and access to two electric car charging points.

    I think this is the nicest converted chapel I have ever seen and the combination of biomass heating with the solar panels make it very cost effective to run which at the moment is very desirable
