About this property

  • The Old Chapel is a beautifully refurbished Chapel dating back to the 1900 built of mellow red brick beneath a slate roof and is situated in the heart of this popular village. Whilst offering plenty of character and charm, the chapel has a contemporary and open plan feel.

    Period features include vaulted ceiling, Gothic arched windows and exposed timbers provide a real sense of this beautiful property's history.

    Carefully and sympathetically refurbished, there has been lovely attention to detail and use of modern fittings including stone fireplace with wood burner, Crittle windows, double glazing, wooden flooring, under floor heating, stylish modern lighting, white bathroom fittings.

    More importantly is a bespoke hand made kitchen, very much the engine room of this property with Aga, generous central island and wealth of fitted cupboards. There is space for cooking, dining, or just relaxing with a real sense of space and height created by the original vaulted ceiling and central windows to the east. Crittle windows and doors open onto the courtyard garden to the rear, allowing for summer entertaining. The bespoke stairs, with a contemporary steel design, rise from the kitchen/breakfast room as a feature.

    A small entrance area opens up into the kitchen/breakfast room. The original main door also provides access opening into the spacious sitting room with seating centred around the fireplace focal point and ample space for a pair of desks for working from home.

    Utility room complements the ground floor ideal for boots, coats, pets, washing and drying.

    Generous principal bedroom with dual aspect and en suite shower room. Guests or family have a choice of bedrooms on the ground and first floors.

    To the rear is a paved courtyard garden and entertaining area with raised beds. From here steps descend to the cellar ideal for storage and offering scope for other uses subject to the relevant consents.

    In recent times the property has been run as an Air BnB and due to its position in the heart of the village, this property would ideally suit a ‘lock up and leave' buyer or professional couple requiring a stylish base.
