Full description

A beautifully presented former chapel in a village location with lovely rural views. Sitting room, Kitchen/dining room, cloakroom, master bedroom with en suite facilities, 2 further double bedrooms, bathroom, courtyard and parking. EPC: Band F

Situation - Old Chapel is situated in the village of Withypool in the heart of the Exmoor National Park. The property is a short walk from the post office/stores, the church and the very popular Royal Oak Inn. Withypool is very well placed to take advantage of Exmoor's extensive footpaths and bridleways leading along the River Barle and up onto the open moors.
 
Dulverton, 8 miles away is well known as The Gateway to Exmoor. Nestled in the Barle Valley, Dulverton has a strong community and provides good day to day shopping together with two churches, post office, chemist, medical, dental and veterinary surgeries and a well-used town hall. There are also good restaurants, inns and recreational facilities including squash courts, all-weather tennis courts, football and cricket pitches.
 
The market town of South Molton, offers an excellent range of day to day amenities including schooling up to secondary level, a wide variety of shops, banking facilities, churches, a livestock market and pannier market on Thursdays and Saturdays.
 
The county town of Taunton, which is 31 miles away, has extensive retail and commercial facilities, together with three independent schools and the Somerset County Cricket Ground. There is access to the M5 motorway (Junction 25) and a main line station with fast trains to London Paddington and the North.
 
Exmoor National Park is one of the most beautiful areas of the country and provides outstanding riding and walking. Traditional field sports are an integral part of the Exmoor community and salmon and trout fishing are enjoyed on the rivers and lakes. The coast to the north is also within easy reach and provides a wealth of water sports such as sailing and surfing.

Description - This former Chapel, built of stone under a slate roof, has been the subject of an extensive architect-designed renovation scheme and redecoration over the past few years. The property is now in excellent order throughout and makes full use of the available space. Sitting in an elevated south facing position with beautiful rural views across the Barle river valley, this lovely cottage would be equally well suited to full or part time occupation. The present owners have successfully let the cottage for summer holidays.

Accommodation - As illustrated on the floor plan the front door leads into a bright hallway with space for coats and boots, a cloakroom and the staircase to the upper floor. The comfortable sitting room has a large feature fireplace with an impressive oak beam over, fitted alcove cupboards either side and inset with a wood burning stove. There is a clever space-saving office incorporated into a deep cupboard that can be locked away for security. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully fitted with a modern range of wall and base units, integral fridge/freezer, dishwasher, a range cooker and plenty of space for a 6 seat table. A stable door leads outside to the courtyard which has a timber utility outbuilding containing plumbing and electrics for appliances.
 
On the first floor the landing provides access to the bedrooms and bathroom and has fitted cupboards with hanging space. The master bedroom is double aspect with delightful moorland views and has en-suite facilities and a fitted cupboard. There are two further double bedrooms and the central family bathroom with modern white suite and shower over the bath.

Outside - There is a paved courtyard to the side of the property suitable as a seating area with a gate to the road. A private designated parking space for one car is situated a few metres away from the property.
