Chapel House is a quintessential grade II listed detached thatched cottage which dates back to 1771 with latter extensions in the late 20th century. The cottage has much in the way of character with exposed timbers, brickwork, latched windows and stripped doors. The property also takes full advantage of its elevated position with views from the kitchen across the village and beyond. Arranged over three storeys the nature of layout means that the property is very versatile. On the ground floor the main entrance hall with galleried landing and vaulted ceiling set the scene beautifully and from here doors lead to a study, sitting room with open fireplace and a family room which is triple aspect and has a feature fireplace. These rooms form part of the original house and are bursting with features. Also located on the ground floor is a good sized utility room with a door to outside. On the first floor, the triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room is a superb room offering much in the way of light and most importantly views over the roof tops. It is fitted with an array of bespoke units with Gaggenau appliances and is a very inviting space. Just along from here there is a family bathroom and three bedrooms with the master suite having the added benefit of a dressing room and ensuite bathroom. In addition ladder stairs ascend to two further attic bedrooms with skylights overlooking the rear.

The property is approached via a gravel drive with parking for several cars.

It has a spiral staircase to a first floor making it a great opportunity to alter further to ones needs. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and from the front it wraps around the side to a level area which is perfect for alfresco dining and a path from the kitchen leads around the back of the house providing access back to the front. Follow a zig zag path up through the garden and the view just improves; banked flower beds with sleepers create colour and scent whilst providing a haven for wildlife and flat lawned areas make for wonderful spots to take in the vista.
