Full description

Give me a P, give me an O, give me a T,E,N,T,I,A,L - what do we have? POTENTIAL!! I know it's an estate agents favourite word but trust me that this gorgeous former chapel building has the P word in spades. Having been partially converted into a unique home, there's opportunity abound here to create the dream, whether that be as a residential home, a smallholding slice of the good life or even a business opportunity. Whilst the front of the building is presently used as a workshop/store, planning has been approved for a full conversion into a three bedroom home with plentiful living space and bags of character. And there'll be no need for temporary accommodation as the current living arrangements at the rear of the building have been cleverly created to maximise the vast space on offer. The open plan living/kitchen/diner and the mezzanine bedroom both benefit from gorgeous exposed A-frame beams and there's also a walk in wet room. Outside there's a pretty patio with steps leading to the lawned garden and direct access onto the enclosed 1.17 acre paddock. The paddock can also be accessed from the spacious parking area and, for those buyers not wanting that level of green-fingered commitment, an option to purchase the chapel without the paddock is available.


Open Plan Lounge/Kitchen/Diner 
20' 5'' x 19' 7'' (6.22m x 5.96m)
A spacious open plan living/kitchen/dining space with exposed wooden A-frame, feature brickwork and natural stone flooring with underfloor heating. Two double glazed wooden windows to either side and two wooden doors. Natural wooden stairs lead from this area up to the mezzanine bedroom and natural stone steps lead to the wet room.

Kitchen Area 
Comprising red base level unit with stainless steel worksurface, Cannon freestanding cooker with oven, grill and hob, single stainless steel sink and drainer unit with storage below, freestanding Smeg fridge/freezer and space for washing machine and tumble dryer.

Wet Room 
7' 10'' x 5' 9'' (2.39m x 1.75m)
Fully tiled in a light blue mosaic tile with continuation to flooring. White suite comprising low flush WC, circular bowl-style sink with chrome mixer tap inset into tiled surround and mains shower with rainwater head. Full length double glazed wooden window to side with further double glazed window at head height. Wall mounted chrome effect towel radiator and wall mounted extractor fan. Sliding door to open plan living space. This room also houses the Greenstar HE gas central heating boiler.

Mezzanine Bedroom 
20' 7'' x 9' 9'' (6.27m x 2.97m)
With feature wooden beams and exposed A-frame, varnished wood flooring and white painted metal balustrade. Two double glazed Velux windows with fitted blackout blinds provide natural light to this space and natural wooden stairs with banister lead to the open plan living area below.

Workshop/Store 
21' 7'' x 27' 3'' (6.57m x 8.30m)
Currently used as a substantial workshop/storage area with exposed brick walls, exposed A-frame and a mixture of concrete and wooden flooring, this space offers great potential for further conversion subject to necessary planning. Four single glazed arched windows, one with feature stained glass, are a reminder of the building's previous life as a chapel and there are wooden double doors leading out to the front. A partly-finished wooden mezzanine has been installed to one end of the workshop area.

Exterior 
Fronted by a low wall, a graveled path with shrub borders leads to the former chapel's front door, now the workshop space. Around to the side, a pretty patio area is surrounded by floral borders, with a small flight of steps leading up to the lawned garden area with wooden storage shed. A tarmac driveway to the side of the property leads to a surprisingly spacious parking area with space for numerous vehicles. Gates lead from both the parking area and the garden space into the 1.17 acre paddock.

Planning Permission 
Planning permission has been approved to convert the existing workshop area and combine it with the existing living accommodation to form a single three bedroom detached dwelling. Further information can be obtained from the Staffordshire Moorland District Council planning portal, using reference SMD/2013/1140. The existing permission was granted on 13/12/2013 for a period of three years.

Directions 
From Stone town centre, head north-east on Longton Road/A520, heading for Rough Close. At the roundabout, take the third exit onto Windmill Hill/A520. Go through one roundabout and at the next roundabout, take the first exit onto Sandon Road/A520 (signposted Leek) and continue on this road for approximately 5 miles. Shortly after entering the 30 mile an hour zone in the village of Werrington, you will find the property on the right hand side as indicated by our For Sale board.
