Full description

The Old Chapel was converted in the 1980's from a former chapel and adjoining barns into a splendid spacious country residence. It has very versatile accommodation which could provide a self-contained annex if required. The property, which faces south, is set in delightful gardens and grounds and there is an adjoining paddock ideal for a pony, as there is also a detached stable which is divided into two sections. For anyone looking for space, this would be ideal.

Lower Dinchope is a small hamlet of cottages and farms and from The Old Chapel there are wonderful views over the delightful surrounding countryside. It is only about six miles from the ever popular historic market town of Ludlow and shops and facilities in Craven Arms are just a mile and a half away.

The main reception hall has a parquet floor and also a cloak room with WC and wash basin. There is a stunning drawing/dining room with a focal point being a stone inglenook fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove on a flagstone hearth. There are a wealth of exposed timbers, a high ceiling and access into a useful storage area. Built-in bookcases and cupboards are at one end of the room and there are sliding patio doors leading to outside and taking in the lovely views. A separate snug room has French doors to outside and a fireplace housing a gas fire. There are built-in corner shelves and a cupboard.

The splendid kitchen/dining room is a very appealing feature of the house. There are a good range of both base and wall units and built-in appliances include a double oven, a microwave, a five plate gas hob with extractor hood above, a dishwasher and there is also a fridge/freezer. A breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the dining area within which is a fireplace housing an electric fan heater and wide sliding patio doors leading to outside again taking advantage of the lovely views. There are a wealth if exposed ceiling timbers. A large utility/laundry room has a white Belfast sink, cupboards and worktops. There is also a built-in cupboard and plumbing for a washing machine. Off the utility/laundry room is a shower room with WC and wash hand basin.

The bedrooms are on either side of the house. The inner hall/study area leads to a bedroom with exposed ceiling beams, built-in wardrobes, French doors to outside and an en-suite bathroom comprising bath with shower above, WC, bidet and wash hand basin. From this end of the house stairs rise to the first floor onto a landing/study area. A double bedroom has exposed ceiling and wall timbers as well as built-in wardrobes. Off this landing are two single bedrooms, again with exposed beams and one with built-in wardrobes. Also bathroom with WC, wash hand basin and bath with shower over.

From the utility/laundry room on the ground floor there is access into further ground floor bedrooms in an area which could accommodate a self-contained annex if required. The hall has three doors leading to outside. The ground floor master bedroom has four windows to three elevations allowing in plenty of natural sunlight and again exposed beams. There are built-in wardrobes, built-in bedside drawer units and a dressing table. From the master bedroom are stunning views across the surrounding countryside. There is a further bedroom with exposed timbers, built-in wardrobes and a patio door looking over the paddock and towards the country views. Here there is a further bathroom comprising a bath with shower above, WC, bidet and wash hand basin.

Outside, from the lane, a sweeping drive with a centre island stocked with ornamental bushes, shrubs and trees, leads up to a parking area with space for several vehicles. The formal gardens have an abundance of colourful plants, shrubs and bushes and there is an adjoining, relatively level paddock. The spacious double garage has two electrically operated roller doors and there is an adjoining store/freezer room from which stairs lead up to a room above the garage which could form a games room, studio, office or anything of a similar nature. There is a rear vehicular access which leads to a detached stone fronted stable which is divided into two sections and is presently used for storage and as a workshop. There is also a timber shed and a wood store.

Tenure: Freehold.
