A dramatic chapel conversion with a stylish interior
The unspoilt village of Uley lies in a picturesque hidden valley on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment and half a mile from the Cotswold Way. There are a number of fine Georgian houses surrounding the village green as well as The Old Crown pub. Overlooking Uley and dominating the skyline is the ancient hill fort of Uley Bury. This is the most commanding Iron Age hill fort in the Cotswolds from which there are magnificent views over the Severn Valley. The village is blessed with a large and well-attended church, an equally popular local brewery, a post office/village shop, a doctors surgery and a primary school. A generous range of supermarkets can be found at Stroud and there are numerous antiques shops and boutiques in Tetbury.
The Old Chapel is a Grade II listed former Methodist church with a date stone indicating that it was constructed in 1790. It is built of course stone with dressed stone quoins and charming gothic windows. It was closed in 1972 and converted to a residential property in the 1990s. It has been converted with considerable flair and imagination and now provides dramatic accommodation with a very light 40' x 30' drawing room and a superb Clive Christian style fitted kitchen/breakfast room and four generous bedrooms upstairs.
The house is approached off a small country lane through gates leading to a gravelled parking area for 3/4 cars. It should be noted that there is lapsed planning permission for the construction of a garage. The gardens surround the property on three sides and the current owners have made a particular effort in landscaping the garden to provide a family friendly space. They have created an enclosed patio area which is accessed from the kitchen with a more formally planted garden to the front of the property. This area has a delightful eating area, well-stocked flower borders and is otherwise predominantly laid to lawn.
