Impressive and well located steading conversion with good views.
1 Chapelton Steading is a most attractive and well presented country house. It was part of a traditional farm steading, converted by the award winning Peterkin Homes in 2005 into three homes. 1 Chapelton Steading occupies the southeast corner of the steading, ensuring that it has good uninterrupted views. It was in effect a new house within an old shell, with a new roof and original stone being re-used in the walls, and has been designed to make the most of its position, with light and spacious accommodation, which is ideal for modern family living and for entertaining. It is fully double glazed, and benefits from oil fired central heating, with a new outside condensing boiler fitted in 2016. The accommodation is arranged in an L shape around an inner courtyard, which provides a sheltered seating area. In summary, at ground floor level there is an entrance vestibule and hallway which links into a sun room, with access to the courtyard. Off this is both the sitting room with large windows making the most of the views and an impressive open plan dining kitchen. Also at this level is a cloakroom. Part way up the stairs is a side landing, which leads to a seating area, with a door to the courtyard. Off this are three bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom. The stairs continue up to a study / landing and the master bedroom and a shower room. In front of the house is an enclosed garden with a double garage to the side.
A wooden gate opens onto a gravelled drive which leads to parking and turning areas adjacent to the house and garage. A partially glazed front door with glazed side lights opens to an entrance vestibule with coat hooks and a glazed inner door with glazed side lights to the hallway. This is a bright area with a staircase to the first floor and an understair cupboard housing a hot water tank and opens through to the sun room with a wall light and a door to the courtyard. Accessed from here is the sitting room which has a cathedral style ceiling, arched windows with deep display areas, fireplace with wooden mantel and a Stovax multi fuel stove, two wall lights and again a glazed door to the courtyard. The spacious dining kitchen is accessed off both the sitting room and the sun room, and has wall and floor units with tiled splashbacks, soft closing drawers and a range of appliances including a Hotpoint fridge, microwave and washing machine, John Lewis oven /grill and four ring ceramic hob, sink and NEFF dishwasher. There is a central island unit with a New World fitted freezer, breakfast bar and further storage. There is ample space for dining, a window seat and a glazed door to the front garden. Also off the hallway is a cloakroom with a pedestal washbasin and WC.
The wooden staircase leads first to a side landing with fitted bookshelves and which in turn leads back to a seating area with two shelved cupboards and a partially glazed door to the courtyard. Bedroom one has fitted wardrobes and a partially tiled en suite shower room with corner shower cubicle, pedestal washbasin and WC. Bedroom two which is currently used as a music room also has fitted wardrobes. The partially tiled family bathroom has a tiled shower cubicle, bath, pedestal washbasin and WC. Bedroom three has fitted wardrobes. The stairs continue up to the first floor study / landing with fitted bookshelves and a walk in shelved and hanging storage cupboard. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes, while the partially tiled shower room has a shower cubicle, pedestal washbasin and WC.
1 Chapelton Steading has a sheltered inner courtyard garden with paved and gravelled seating areas and a shrub border. In front of the house is an enclosed garden with a lawn, flower borders, hedging, and a paved seating area linked to the house. The double garage to the side, is block built and harled with slate roof, concrete floor, two up and over doors, power and light. Behind is an enclosed gravelled area with raised vegetable borders.
