Full description

A magnificent and historic CONVERTED CHAPEL with spacious reception accommodation and galleried mezzanine floor located in the heart of this pretty village. Stunning original features, hugely flexible accommodation, gardens and parking, village location, outbuildings, perfect for entertaining. EPC Band G.

Situation - The pretty village of Golberdon nests neatly in unspoilt countryside and the patchwork of fields and wooded valleys of South East Cornwall, about 40 minutes from the centre of Plymouth. However, whilst Golberdon is situated amongst green fields it could not be considered remote and is only some 3 miles from Callington which offers a traditional range of amenities including a selection of shops, banks, bus service, doctors and dentist surgeries, public houses and restaurants. Wider facilities can be found 6 miles to the south west in the market town of Liskeard.
 
This stunning property represents a fine lifestyle investment. The spectacular scenery provides many and varied sporting opportunities, including walking, riding and fishing. To the south is the beautiful Cornish coastline with fine sandy beaches and crystal clear and clean waters, perfect for sailing or scuba diving on the various wrecks. A number of countryside/river walks for the walking enthusiast can be enjoyed in the nearby Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Description - This rare, highly impressive converted chapel was originally built in 1863 and extended to incorporate the sunday school in 1871. The present owners sympathetically converted the chapel into the terrific home it is today around 20 years ago. This is one of the finest chapel conversions we have seen, retaining much of the original character perfectly blended with modern living without compromise.
 
The chapel, which benefits from having an architect designed conversion sympathetically converted to provide a home of impressive proportions, whilst carefully executed to preserve many of the original chapel features such as exposed oak vaulted beams, stone corbels and original quarry tiling.

Accommodation - The floor plan shall provide a detailed layout of this fabulous conversion, however, we highly recommend internal inspection to appreciate the scale of accommodation and attention to detail which has been lavished on this home.
 
The deeply flexible accommodation is currently arranged to provide three reception rooms and three or even four bedrooms, this could be easily changed to accommodate your needs.
 
Crossing the threshold, you are immediately grabbed by the original tiled floor and coat pegs, turning right into the sitting room, a large solid fuel wood burner heats the heart of the home. The impressive windows flood the stylish interior with natural light, a door leads to the garden porch which in turn leads to the garden. An archway leads to the formal dining room, currently used as a home studio, and the double height ceiling is galleried to the bedroom above.
 
The comfortable kitchen is stylish and ergonomic, with plenty of space for a breakfast table, and leads to the utility room beyond.
 
Two staircases lead to the first floor, where you will find three or even four bedrooms and an additional reception room, currently used as a reading room.

Gardens & Grounds - The gardens and grounds have been carefully planned and designed with separate lawned areas to the front and bordered by a variety of herbaceous plants and securely ring-fenced by the original chapel wall and fencing. There is off road parking for numerous vehicles.
 
To the rear a courtyard garden is bounded by a stone wall and is mainly hard landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind. A number of stone constructed outbuildings provide storage and garaging. An expired planning permission formally gave permission to convert this into further accommodation.
