Tenure: Freehold

The sale of Delamere Chapel House is indeed a rare and welcome edition to the market. The property is truly unique, with viewing absolutely essential in order to appreciate its array of remarkable features. From an initial drive-by, the property appears to be an attractive and quaint individual cottage but this does nothing to demonstrate the true size and versatility of the building and the external environment.

Extraordinarily the accommodation totals over 5300 sq ft and externally the gardens and grounds extend to a little over 1.5 acres with formal gardens, paddocks and outbuildings. There is also a spectacular timber decking area with heated outdoor swimming pool from which you can enjoy wonderful far reaching views, although totally screened from view and very private.

The property itself as one would assume from the name is an original chapel that has been subsequently extended and adapted through the years so as to create a unique and hugely flexible layout. The floor plan with these particulars is perhaps the best way to understand the scope, shape and size of the accommodation but it is also worth pointing out some of the key features. The principal reception rooms being the living room and dining room have many of the original features associated with a chapel including a pulpit, beautiful original windows and many other features of character. The principal house also has the benefit of a large breakfast kitchen with space for table and chairs and a study/snug. In total there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms with at least one of these rooms being capable of being a games/snooker room. It should also be noted that at the rear of the accommodation there is a small useful hobby/sewing room.

Of significant interest is the fact that the property has in the lower ground floor level an excellent purpose designed flat/apartment. This flat/apartment is ideal for a dependent relative or indeed subject to the necessary consents an ideal holiday let for additional income. The flat has a well equipped kitchen, bathroom, cloakroom, living room and good size bedroom. It has independent access to the outside and also links to the house via an internal staircase.

There is also extensive storage in the subject property with cellars, a stable block and garage.

The external environment is an absolute delight. The property is approached via an electrically operated security gate that leads to an attractive block paved driveway providing ample off road parking and turning space for several vehicles. The open fronted three bay garage and stable block can be found on the left hand side. The formal gardens are an absolute delight having been beautifully landscaped and cultivated through the years so as to create a private, mature and established external space. In recent times the property has been heavily invested in with the creation of a terrific raised timber decking platform which takes full advantage of the views towards the Welsh hills and has, raised up a little, a superb heated outdoor swimming pool. For those with an equestrian interest there are well laid paddocks and of course the previously mentioned outbuildings to compliment these.

Delamere Chapel House offers everything a buyer could want - a spacious house, a dependent relative/holiday let apartment, outstanding external space incorporating outbuildings, formal gardens, paddocks and swimming pool in addition to a location which is second to none in the locality with far reaching views of the Welsh hills. An early viewing is recommended in order to fully appreciate the quality of this superb individual property.
