Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The idyllic riverside setting in Burnham Thorpe ensures a pleasant approach to what is now a uniquely configured home. Set above the arched entrance door, the date stone indicates the construction of this former Methodist Chapel to be 1853. A clever division of the interior has created a dining area, kitchen, raised level main living area with a wood burning stove, large bedroom which could perhaps be reconfigured to create a second bedroom, bathroom with roll top bath and useful mezzanine space. Windows with decorative stained glass inlays are arched, square and circular in design - a most attractive way to view the countryside beyond. Oak flooring and a double height heavy oak beamed vaulted ceiling demonstrate further elements of this former place of worship. The pleasant garden sits behind a brick and flint wall, which also spans the neighbouring river. Situated as a platform over the river, the decking maximises the south westerly views, offering a lovely space to relax.
 

BURNHAM THORPE Burnham Thorpe is very much off the beaten track. It's famous for being the birthplace of Nelson although his house was knocked down many years ago. There's a good gastro pub. It's just 2.3 miles from Burnham Market with its wide range of shops and boutiques together with good food establishments, and 2.2 miles from the coastal village of Burnham Overy Staithe with its tidal harbour, and good walks across the marshes and long sandy beaches.
 

DINING AREA 23' 5" x 11' 3" (7.16m x 3.43m) The solid oak arched entrance door opens into the main chapel area which is subdivided into three sections. A unique pebble covered step leads into the dining area which has lined wide plank oak flooring, wood panelled walls and a built-in curved seating area. Double height ceilings with a solid wood ladder leading up to the second floor mezzanine. Two arched windows with stained glass and solid wood shutters overlook the west facing front garden. Another timber door with glass panel inlays leads out onto the southerly aspect decking adjacent to the stream. Steps lead down to the kitchen area.
 

KITCHEN The kitchen area has a polished stone work top and matching splash back. Recessed circular stainless steel sink with chrome taps. Recessed brushed aluminium five ring gas hob and rustic sold oak doors underneath. Built in shelving behind glazed doors.
