Set in an elevated position overlooking the village green, this superb conversion of a Grade II Listed former chapel offers a bright and impressively proportioned modern living space whilst retaining much of the character of this historic building. Constructed around 1865 using smooth Ashlar stone, the building has an imposing pedimented front with tall sash windows that flood the interior with natural light. The double height open plan living space has underfloor heating for added comfort and offers a fitted kitchen with a professional Lacanche range oven, a reception area with floor-to-ceiling storage/display shelves and a generously sized dining area. The principal bedroom on the first floor benefits from a dressing room and bathroom with free-standing roll top bath. A guest bedroom, shower room, utility room and under-stairs home office complete the centrally heated accommodation. There is a large attic storage area that offers scope for further development (STPP).
To the front, the gravelled courtyard offers enchanting views and is surrounded by iron railings that incorporate an impressive arch housing a traditional lamp. To the side is a sheltered sitting area which is ideal for al fresco entertaining and a landscaped topiary garden stocked with sculptured box bushes. There is a stone workshop/store whilst a short distance down the lane there is a double car port.
