There can be many difficulties converting an old chapel to a residential dwelling - with thought and skillful craftsmanship, this project seems to have overcome them all. The triple aspect ground floor of the main chapel is now a large sitting room/dining room which has a brick faced open fireplace with inset log burning stove. The French Doors lead to a small private side courtyard and dog leg stairs rise from the reception hall to the first floor. Here there are three bedrooms (master en-suite), a separate study and family bathroom. The attractive window shape from the old chapel has been retained and bespoke replacement windows installed. The outside space continues to delight with off road parking, garage, lawned gardens with mature trees and a heated swimming pool to the rear. A timber gate then opens onto a private paddock of .34 acre with further mature trees, post and rail fencing and hedge rows.
