'Hidden in plain sight', a quintessential summary of how this extraordinary Chapel conversion sits quietly in the centre of Wotton under Edge but without disclosing or revealing any of the secrets that lay within. Hiding all of its charm, character and beauty from those who pass by, the unassuming and subtle exterior conceals a most fascinating interior which combines a versatile arrangement of eye opening living space and workshop area. The Chapel - known as Old Town Meeting House - dates back to the 1700s but was later extended and adapted into the Victorian Chapel that presents itself today. Still functioning as a Methodist Meeting House up until the late 1900s, the property has since been sympathetically and meticulously restored by the current owner who as a silversmith and artist by trade incorporates much of his artistic flare and qualities whilst not losing the integrity of the building, nor of its past as a place of prayer and learning. Additional surprises are a large, beautiful and private garden, an attractive timber carport combining workshop and storeroom plus ample off street parking. Inside the accommodation offers a three bedroom flatlet style living (with two ensuites and a lounge area) whilst on the ground floor you will find the archetypal open plan living areas, high ceilings and spectacular windows associated with a Chapel conversion. These areas are thoughtfully sectioned and present themselves as the family kitchen, reception area and a further (potential) lounge area which is currently used as the workshop/studio. There is also a study and a downstairs showers room. In 2020 the Chapel was recognised as being in the Top 10 of the most "imaginative and jaw-dropping converted homes" by Livingetc magazine, plus it has been featured in architecturaldigest.

This charming Cotswold market town enjoys a vibrant High Street with an eclectic mix of independent shops and coffees shops, further complemented by two local supermarkets plus its own independent cinema (dating back to 1911) which shows current and arthouse films with digital and 3D equipment! Wotton-under-Edge is situated amidst beautiful countryside on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment, ideal for families and for those wanting to be part of a thriving community. The M5 Junction 14 is approx. 5.1miles for commuters to Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham whilst Tetbury is 10.1 miles. For rail links to Bristol and Gloucester Cam and Dursley Railway Station is approx. 7 miles away. There are two Primary Schools centrally located in Wotton plus you will find more in the surrounding villages of Charfield, Tortworth and Hillesley. For secondary education the reputable Katharine Lady Berkeley is situated on the outskirts of the town in nearby Kingswood so still walking distance. Outdoor pursuits include exploring the Cotswold Way which runs directly through the town, the local Golf club, a refurbished Open Air Pool Swimming Pool (seasonal) with a retractable enclosure.
