Full description

An intricate and stunning conversion of a Methodist Chapel, originally constructed in 1844 now providing a substantial family home combining the character of the old and convenience of the new all at the heart of Mellor Village.

Church House was sympathetically converted by the current owners to create a stunning family home yet it retains a plethora of original features revealing its past history as a village church. Originally built by local mill owner and benefactor Thomas Waller in 1844, this landmark property has been a feature of the village of Mellor Village ever since.

Constructed of local stone under a slate roof the property now provides generous living space perfectly designed for modern living whilst retaining a wealth of ecclesiastical features such as stained glass, high ceilings and original flooring.

Attention has been lavished on every detail with careful consideration to the use of natural light and how the rooms interconnect both physically and visually.

Now a much loved family home, the roots of the building have been carefully preserved, the generously proportioned accommodation now briefly comprises; reception hall, original wood panelled wall with door providing access to the impressive high ceilinged lounge with feature fireplace, there is a separate dining room, sitting room, dining kitchen where some of the original pews have been used to create the kitchen units, study with original boxed pew, ground floor WC and impressive gallery providing two useful additional areas overlooking both the lounge and the study.

To the lower ground floor (previously used as the Sunday School), there are four good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a spacious en suite and a walk in wardrobe. One of the bedrooms is currently used as a study and a further games room. There is also a good sized family bathroom and a useful utility room.

It should be noted that the property has the benefit of an exceptionally large boarded loft which has power and lighting, although currently used for storage it has the potential to create further accommodation if required (subject to obtaining any consents). There is also a garden store accessible from the garden and internally from the main body of the property. We have been advised by the vendor that this property benefits from High speed Fibre Optic broadband.

Externally, a driveway provides ample off road parking. There is a well kept front garden which is mainly laid to lawn. To the side and rear there is an attractive, private garden boasting lawn area and patios providing very pleasant outdoor seating areas.

Mellor is situated close to some of Cheshire and Derbyshire's finest countryside. Marple Bridge caters for most day to day requirements whilst nearby Marple offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, educational and recreational facilities.
