The Property
Roman Hall is a stone built former Chapel which dates back to 1835 and was sympathetically renovated and converted by the current owners in 2010 and has been completely redecorated recently. The property now provides flexible accommodation with an abundance of charm and character that retains original features, including stained glass mullioned windows, wood flooring, fireplaces and vaulted ceilings, combined with contemporary fixtures and fittings. Roman Hall sits on the edge of the picturesque hamlet of Henshaw in an accessible yet rural location, amidst beautiful Hadrian¿s Wall country; the property is ideal as a home or as holiday accommodation.

The front door opens into a hallway which has a vaulted ceiling and leads into a spacious reception room which has a part-vaulted ceiling, stripped wood flooring throughout and two clearly defined areas for sitting and dining. There is a multi-fuel stove with stone mantle in the sitting area and the entire room is flooded with light from arched windows, some of which have original stained glass. An inner hall leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, which also has arched stained glass windows and vaulted ceiling, has the original range set in the stone surround and multi-fuel stove. The kitchen, which is fitted with a range of cream units, 1½ bowl corner sink and drainer, has space for a cooker and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. With ample space for informal dining the kitchen/breakfast room also has a door to outside and a window overlooking the rear courtyard which is accessed off the inner hall and two under stairs storage cupboards.

The bedroom accommodation is flexible and could be extended by utilising the vaulted ceiling spaces over the kitchen/breakfast room and reception room. There are two mezzanine bedrooms, one accessed from the kitchen and the other from the sitting room, together with a further bedroom off the inner hall which offers far-reaching Tyne Valley views. The mezzanine master bedroom has a feature arched stained glass window. The bedrooms have use of a bathroom which is fitted with a contemporary white suite comprising double-ended bath, open shower, wash hand basin set in a vanity unit with granite surface and WC. A separate cloakroom with wash hand basin and WC completes the accommodation.

Externally
There are two gravelled areas to either side of the front door which provide off-street parking for a number of cars. The original stone steps with border planting to either side lead up to the original Chapel portico and the front door. To one side there is a door giving access to the cellar (5.35m x 3.24m max) which has power and light, houses three electric boilers and provides excellent storage space.

A ramp to the side of the property, with attractive original cast iron railings, leads to the kitchen door and a small, south-facing gravelled sitting area from which to enjoy the valley views. A private courtyard to the rear is accessed from the inner hall.
