The Old Chapel is a deceptively spacious and versatile home which has been cleverly formed from a former Methodist Chapel. Originally converted in 1995 under the guidance of the current owner and by architects who between them had an eye for design and a skill for combining contemporary and traditional architecture. The property showcases many of its original features but enjoys many more modern additions and luxuries which combine to form a very appealing property.
A great deal of respect has been shown to the building, which looks much as it did when it was built but much has changed within. The property extends to just over 2,700 sq ft providing generous and flexible accommodation, The open-plan interior was divided to create a double-height hallway and corridor leading to a shower room. The large living space was given a split level to create interest and stairs were placed at the end with care so they don’t intrude on the beautiful stained glass window. They lead to a new first-floor mezzanine with 4 bedrooms and 2 luxurious bathrooms. The Sunday school room is now a kitchen and an extension houses a new utility. The addition has a barrel ceiling and is so well conceived it looks as though it is part of the original building. Completing the picture is a very inviting garden room and covered veranda which provides a fabulous vantage point from which to enjoy the garden.
The property stands above and back from the main street in this popular estate village, with vehicular access to the rear leading to a pair of solid wood entrance gates which open to reveal a particularly private and thoughtfully landscaped garden. In one direction there are steps leading down to a sunken patio with raised beds providing a splash of cover and shelter, in the other direction block paving leads to the double garage/parking area, flanked by a raised lawn and terrace with a timber Japanese hot tub and summer house at one end. This has the benefit of underfloor heating and power. Above the fully insulated garage there is also a self-contained studio flat ideally suited to holiday letting or short-term guests.
Nb. All of the furniture is available to purchase by separate negotiation.
