INTRO Oscroft is a beautiful semi rural hamlet where properties are continually in demand. This is no surprise given the fact that in and around the area is some of the most beautiful open countryside in the locality. Within the village this splendid individual property occupies a good position having open views over the countryside to both the front and rear. The property was a former Methodist Chapel that was converted to a residential unit when the Methodist Chapel relocated elsewhere in the locality. Upon inspection potential purchasers will note a fantastic quality of the conversion that has skilfully combined a retention of many period and original features without any compromise to the layout and internal practicalities.

The accommodation opens with a superb entrance hall which is wide, spacious and creates an impressive first impression. From the entrance hall there are doors that lead to a cloakroom and a useful utility room. Thereafter there are three reception rooms in total they being a useful study, formal dining room and outstanding living room. The living room is worthy of particular attention due to its size and the feature of the wood burning stove as the primary focal point. The breakfast kitchen is an excellent size providing ample space for table and chairs, it has light from three sides and is a perfect hub for day to day family life. It should be noted that throughout the house the majority of rooms are flooded with natural light with the design of the conversion particularly focused on achieving this aim.

At first floor level the accommodation continues to impress and offers fantastic versatility to a future buyer. There are in total four bedrooms, each with there own individual character, shape and style. Three of the four bedrooms have an en-suite facility whilst there is a separate family bathroom that serves bedroom four.

Externally there is a gravelled driveway providing ample off road parking and turning space for several vehicles and this in turn leads to the generously proportioned double garage. Above the double garage, accessed via timber steps and decking platform is a fantastic studio that runs over the double garage and can be utilised in a number of different ways with the obvious uses including a home office, teenagers den, media room or dependent relative annex.

The gardens of the property are substantially found to the rear and provides an area of lawn and, as already mentioned, there are timber decking platforms. The gardens include good levels of seclusion and privacy and enjoy fabulous far reaching views.

The Chapel in Oscroft is a rare and welcome addition to the housing market and considerable levels of market attention are anticipated.
