Full description

Chapel House enjoys a spectacular location in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the banks of the River Wye amidst the rolling countryside of the Upper Wye Valley.

Chapel House dates back to the late 18th Century but with a substantial new wing added by his son-in-law Sir George Barstow in 1935. The house is held in much affection locally.

Built of stone beneath a slate roof, the combination of the two distinct eras gives it the elegance of a period house with the style of the Arts & Crafts movement. The current owners have beautifully maintained and improved Chapel House whilst ensuring that the original charm and character remains unspoilt.

The house is dominated by an impressive drawing room. Of particular interest is the long south facing garden room. The kitchen with its oil fired Aga, has an office and utility room beyond.

Two staircases lead to the library, 5 main bedrooms with 2 en-suite bathrooms, dressing room, two further bathrooms and a useful guests' kitchen leading to the gallery. 4 further bedrooms, a bathroom and bathroom on the second floor.

Gardens, stable block and paddock. In all 5.3 acres.
