A beautifully presented family home which has been extensively renovated by the current owners.
Built originally in the mid-19th century as a two-storey one-bedroom cottage for the local Methodist minister, Chapel House has been substantially extended three times in the mid-to-late 20th century to now form a superb and very well-proportioned family home. It has also been extensively enhanced by our clients, including the installation in 2015 of a new condensing oil-fired boiler, programmer and water tank, and the fitting in 2018 of attractive lead-lined new double-glazed windows and external doors throughout, to provide the perfect family layout & character for modern day family living.
The ground floor accommodation includes an enclosed porch leading into an attractive entrance hall, a cloakroom/storage room, and a very spacious open plan area with a large sitting room which flows perfectly into the dining room, making this the perfect house for entertaining. The rear of the sitting room area also features a wood-burner stove in a large stone fireplace surround. In addition there is a separate snug or study at the front of the house. To the side and rear of the ground floor there is a stunning open plan kitchen/breakfast room which complete with views over the attractive garden offers the perfect modern family space. The kitchen area comes complete with a matching range of floor and wall mounted units, a central island, granite worktops, Egyptian limestone flooring and includes an integrated double oven, induction hob & extractor fan, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and a water softening system. The kitchen area also provides ample space for a separate breakfast area. At the rear of the house is also a spacious and fully refurbished utility room area and a separate toilet.
On the first floor there are five well-proportioned double bedrooms (one of which is currently used as an additional sitting room) and a smaller single bedroom currently used as a store room. Three of the bedrooms have fitted or walk-in wardrobes and there are also three bathrooms (two of which are en-suite to bedrooms) all of which have been beautifully fitted. The entire house has a wonderful feeling of space, charm, relaxation and natural light throughout.
Outside there is a detached double garage (part of which accommodates a separate room currently used for storage of garden furniture and other items), a separate and elegant octagonal summerhouse at the rear of the large garden area, and a spacious garden shed for the storage of mowers and garden tools etc. With gravel driveways on both sides of the property there is also ample parking for several cars. The garden area and grounds are of particular merit and offer complete privacy with a range of lawned areas, attractively planted borders and mature trees. Leading to the garden there is also a large paved terrace and patio area which lends itself perfectly to Al Fresco dining & socialising with family and friends.
