Full description


This detached former Methodist Chapel is believed to have been built in the late 1700's to an unusual boat shape design (influence by Noah's Ark?) and is Grade II listed. The main walls are rendered stone and the roof is steel profile sheeting. In recent years the chapel has been converted to a charming residential property with features including the gothic front windows and arched double entrance doors. It has been appointed to a high standard (bespoke oak staircase etc.) with attractive and quirky accommodation.

The Chapel is situated in the picturesque country village of Smallridge in the heart of the Axe Valley. The old market town of Axminster is about 1.6 miles to the south and the coast of Lyme Regis and Seaton are both easily accessible.

This is a unique property ideal as a 'lock and leave' holiday retreat or a comfortable permanent home.
