Introduction 
The Old Church is both magnificent in its stature and breath-taking in its grandeur. A stunning conversion and architectural masterpiece without any detriment to the original period and character, using an abundance of reclaimed materials, ecclesiastical relics and superb design features which have seamlessly transformed this historically important 19th Century church into an uber contemporary and exceptional residential dwelling of vast proportions, which is simply unsurpassed in this region. Internally this beautiful property boasts an abundance of entirely flexible accommodation, which with an absence of internal walls, is presented in an almost entirely open-plan style. The full height vaulted ceiling with exposed beams extending the length of the building, is complemented by the original leaded and stained glass windows, providing a truly majestic appearance and creating an evocative sense of light and space which leaves you awestruck.

Ground Floor 
The enormous central space provides a wealth of useable living areas, yet remains intimate in its feel. A two-metre tall, cylindrical wood burning Swedish stove creates the perfect snug area, with configuration options for two living areas, a reading area, two sleeping areas with floor to ceiling privacy curtains and a large built in study area set on a raised platform with a bespoke fitted desk built of reclaimed materials A free standing roll-top claw foot bath adds the perfect shot of eccentricity to this artistic, eclectic, beautiful room.

Kitchen 
The beautiful kitchen area certainly inspires creativity and offers a truly awe-inspiring space in which to entertain and relax with friends/family. Situated in the original pentagonal apse at the site of the original alter, the kitchen features a spectacular vaulted ceiling, a selection of units built from reclaimed materials, a full size Rangemaster with electric hob/griddle and an additional 4 ring gas hob ensuring a serious space for those who love cooking, complimented by built in dishwasher, fridge and freezer.

Bathrooms  
Additional to the free standing bath, a private shower room on the ground floor offers a contemporary double shower enclosure with a high level period style wc and an ecclestical hand wash basin kept warm via a heated chrome towel rail. A second wc is discretely housed on the mezzanine floor.

Mezzanine First Floor 
The first floor mezzanine level can be accessed from either end of the Church via attractive cast iron spiral staircases. This superb space would make the perfect romantic bedroom area with vaulted ceilings, built in wardrobes and a separate wc. However, the mezzanine also provides an excellent studio space or is ideal for work/study or as a relaxation area. An oversized double bed commands the area and sits within the overhang of the vaulted ceiling and exposed beams which on closer inspection have carved heads of Kings and Queens adorning the bedding, maintaining the grand luxury styling.

Grounds 
The manicured grounds include an expansive lawn area, two paved patio areas, complemented by hedging and a variety of attractive trees, shrubs and flowers framing open countryside to all sides and magnificent open vistas, stretching to the horizon and incredible sunsets to the West. Gated entrance opens to a gravel driveway leading to a multiple vehicle parking area and front entrance with a charming, timber built summerhouse. Utilising underfloor heating, the outbuilding can also be used as a guest house, home office or creative space.

Heating 
The heating was designed with efficiency in mind. The building has exceptional insulation and features a large underground gas tank which serves boiler and back-up boiler to a series of radiators that run the perimeter of the internal walls. This, offset with the ceramic Swedish wood stove and under floor heating in the kitchen, keeps the building consistently warm with great efficiency.
