FOUR BEDROOM CONVERTED CHAPEL WITH TWO BEDROOM ANNEXE - TWO VERSATILE OUTBUILDINGS, a stone two storey barn, subject to planning permission- ideal cottage holiday let, also a separate fully insulated building with electric, telephone and cloakroom - ideal for office or studio.
This property presents an exciting chance to purchase a unique former Methodist chapel lying in about an acre, bursting with architectural features, presenting a whole host of opportunities for the next lucky owner and situated in easy reach of the village's amenities. We believe that the chapel was completed in around 1906 and was once used as the 'soup kitchen' for the village children. It was converted in 1983 by our seller who has created a cherished and comfortable home, which must be viewed both internally and externally for it to unravel the secrets hidden behind its facade. Amongst the features on offer are stone mullion windows, 'rose' and arched windows, stone arches and the splendid cruck frames. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating.
