(THE MAIN PHOTO WAS TAKEN OVER 10 YEARS AGO AND IS BEING USED AS THE GARDENS HAVE MATURED). A detached converted Grade II Listed Chapel dating from 1726, quietly located in the centre of Tisbury just off the High Street. The property has a wealth of appealing features with much character and history and is a wonderful opportunity for those seeking a piece of history as a weekend retreat.
Directions - Leave Salisbury on the A36 and, upon reaching Wilton, turn left at the roundabout to proceed through the town and leave on the A30. After approximately two miles, turn right at Barford St Martin on to the B3089 and proceed through the village of Dinton. Turn left on to the Tisbury Road and upon reaching Tisbury, continue to the top of the High Street. Turn left and proceed down the High Street and Morgans Chapel can be found opposite The Boot Inn with pedestrian access being gained through two white timber gates.
Description - Morgans Chapel is a detached former Chapel constructed in 1726 and sympathetically converted into residential accommodation. The property is a one-off opportunity to acquire an architecturally interesting residence with many character features which can only be appreciated by viewing the property. The Chapel is accessed via imposing oak doors which lead to the entrance hallway which has a flagstone floor. The open plan living area is the main feature of the property with its double height ceiling, timber panelling at first floor level, stone mullion windows and inscribed wall stones which remind one of its history as they are in memory of former pastors of the Chapel, including Rev John Morgan after whom the house is now named. Also on the ground floor is bedroom three/study, a WC and the living area opens through to a kitchen area and then to a utility room. There are two galleried first floor bedrooms and a bathroom and the property has character and history throughout whilst retaining a homely feel. Externally, there are small areas of paved garden and the property itself is quietly set back from Tisbury High Street. The town centre lies a short walk away and has an excellent range of amenities including a mainline railway station serving Salisbury and London Waterloo.
