Location Chapel House is situated on the outskirts of the small village of South Lopham on the edge of Redgrave and Lopham Fen, the largest remaining river valley fen in England and the source of the River Waveney. Within the village there is a public house whilst in neighbouring North Lopham there is a shop with post office, village school and pub. The nearest service centre is the thriving market town of Diss located around 6 miles to the east via the A1066. Diss offers a full range of amenities including excellent local and national shopping; a thriving business community; leisure and sporting facilities including rugby, football and cricket clubs along with a private golf course with driving range. There is a mainline rail station with regular commuter services to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street. South Lopham offers good access to the historic towns of Bury St Edmunds and Thetford, whilst the cathedral and regional city of Norwich lies around 25 miles to the north. 

The Property This Baptist chapel is built of clay lump, a traditional building material, and dates back to 1852 and was converted for residential use approximately 20 years ago. The accommodation is spacious and features an arched doorway, bare floorboards and Milton floor tiles running through the hallway. The cottage style kitchen has the benefit of a larder and a Rayburn cooking range which also heats radiators and hot water. The dining area has windows to three aspects and doors to the rear garden and the sitting room features a woodburning stove with cupboards to each side of the fireplace. On the first floor are four bedrooms and a family bathroom with four piece suite. Overall the property is homely and comfortable yet offers scope for extension or further improvement. 

Outside Chapel House occupies a generous corner plot of 0.4 acre (0.162 ha) with the majority of garden lying to the rear of the property. The original front door sits to the south aspect and is approached via a path leading from the road. There are a few remaining gravestones within the front and side garden but we understand from the vendor that these can now be removed by a future owner if required as these areas of garden have now been sold to the vendor of Chapel House without any attached covenants relating to visiting rights. A high hedge divides the parking area from the garden to the east and a small gate leads from parking area to the rear access door into the utility room. Within this organic garden there is a large fenced vegetable patch with polytunnel, two garden sheds (one with power and lighting) and to the rear north west boundary is a fenced chicken enclosure. The remaining garden is laid to grass and incorporates a wildlife pond and a variety of fruit trees.
