As you pull onto the pea shingle driveway, providing off road parking for several vehicles, you quickly realise that you are in a very quiet rural location with the best of both worlds as all you need is within a short drive. Chapel House offers a mix of the past & present in one comfortable, four bedroomed, two reception roomed character home, dating back to 1861.

Passing through the five bar gate into your main garden, Chapel House sits towards the rear of the plot meaning that the garden to the front harbours a good deal of sunshine. Indeed with additional laurel hedging towards the front of the garden it would become a very private and secure space, especially for young children or pets. The main garden is predominately laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and has a pathway leading from the five bar gate to the both front doors.

On entering the property you proceed into a spacious internal hallway with doors leading off to most rooms and a staircase rising up to the first floor. To start with, you have a ground floor three piece shower room with window to front and heated towel rail. There is also a first floor three piece bathroom as well. Continuing through you then enter the kitchen breakfast room measuring 18'8 x 9'9, which has a well fitted shaker style kitchen with plumbing for dishwasher, integrated oven, hob, extractor hood and tiled flooring with two double glazed sash style windows overlooking the lovely private enclosed side garden. There is plenty of storage and worksurface, plus a door leading to the utility/boot room which in turn leads out to the rear garden. The utility room has plumbing for washing machine and is also a great room for bringing the dogs back into after a long walk. At the other end of the kitchen there is the breakfast/dining area perfect for those family morning breakfast or afternoon snacks. For more formal occasions, you have a separate dining room.

Heading back into the internal hallway you have doors leading to the remaining of the ground floor rooms, comprising two bedrooms, a dining room and a spacious sitting room. The dining room to the rear of the property measures 13'9 x 10'0, has a double glazed sash style window overlooking the private rear garden and is perfect for entertaining.

The two bedrooms are currently being used as reception rooms, measuring 11'9 x 10'0 and 10'0 x 6'9 with double glazed sash style windows to rear and side.

Moving into the impressive sitting room, measuring 20'3 x 15'8, you immediately focus on the stylish Clearview multi-fuel burner situated in the corner of the room with a chrome flue disappearing through the ceiling, making a very nice feature blending old and contemporary. This was the original chapel and still has the old entrance with period tiled flooring and oak threshold which no doubt could tell some stories. Incidentally, this additional entrance provides easy access for large furniture including the current vendors' baby-grand piano.

Moving back into the hallway and making our way to the stairs, you pass a large understair storage cupboard. The first floor landing is light and bright with the double glazed Velux window immediately illuminating the stairwell. The airing cupboard can be found off the landing along with doors leading to the master bedroom and another sizable double bedroom and a family bathroom. The master bedroom, measuring 15'9 x 13'5, features the original chapel windows to the front making for a pleasant period feel to the room. There is again storage via the eaves, plus flat walls for freestanding wardrobes. Bedroom two is located at the rear of the property, which is again an impressive double bedroom measuring 13'5 x 12'0 and also has eaves storage and flat walls for wardrobes.

The family bathroom features a bath with victorian style mixer taps and shower attachment, vanity unit with storage and low level w.c.

Outside, Chapel House is set in a generous plot and the peace and quiet is immediately apparent. From the large front garden, you can access the side and rear gardens through a side gate. The un-overlooked side and rear garden is made up of lawned areas, along with a raised decking area, shingled Mediterranean style garden and a small inset pond, all enclosed with hedging and panel fencing. Access is possible all around Chapel House and a large 2500L plastic-bunded heating oil tank is tucked away in the bottom right hand corner of the plot.

Location
This former Chapel sits on the border of Great Bromley and Ardleigh and provides easy access to the mainline Railway stations at Manningtree, Wivenhoe, Colchester and Great Bentley. Main shopping facilities can be found in Colchester, Wivenhoe and Manningtree for local and national shops and the A120 leading to the A12 is within easy driving reach. St George's C of E Primary School has a fantastic reputation and has a good Ofsted status, further education schooling can be found in Manningtree and Colchester. Great Bromley is a delightful village which always has something going on to bring the village together at the cricket club and/or village hall. The historic Court House is a public house and restaurant, perfect for family nights out or the occasional Sunday roast and a family butchers is just down the road.

We highly recommend an internal inspection to experience for yourself this peaceful location, the historic character-filled chapel with its flexible accommodation and its deceptivelygenerous size.
