Since 2013 the chapel and annexe have been completely renovated and restored to a high standard by the present owners. They stand in lawned gardens benefitting from OUTSTANDING VIEWS OVER SURROUNDING FARMLAND, in the heart of this popular Tarrant Valley village, about 5 miles from Wimborne Minster and 4 miles from Blandford Forum. The village has a parish church, a village hall and the True Lover's Knot Inn.

Traditionally constructed in 1896, the chapel has facing red brick elevations with 2 impressive gables under a ridged natural slate roof (with feature clay gables and a brick chimney.) The annexe has brick elevations with wavy timber features and a high gable under a slate roof.

Chapelcombe House is accessed via a tarmac slipway and timber double gates which lead into a large gravelled courtyard. There is a large flat lawn enclosed by post-and rail-fencing and adjoining farmland.

Ledged and braced double doors lead into an entrance vestibule with a quarry tiled floor. The entrance hallway has a laundry facility with space for washing machine, and a wall mounted central heating boiler.

The ground floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one of which is en suite,) and double doors to the courtyard. An oak and glass staircase leads to the magnificent living/family/kitchen area on the first floor, which has exposed A-frame timbers, 2 circular stained glass windows, 2 sets of UPVC double glazed casement double doors with Juliet balconies giving superb views over the surrounding farmland, and a feature wood burning stove set on a slate plinth. The contemporary kitchen has silestone work surfaces, a comprehensive range of solid wood base cupboards and drawers, built-in appliances (fridge, freezer, Miele steam oven, Miele coffee machine, Miele hob and lava rock griddle.)

The first floor also has a study and a cloakroom.

The detached annexe and studio has, on the ground floor, an entrance hall, a large living room with kitchen area, a double bedroom and a separate shower room. Via its own entrance, on the first floor there is a shower room, a large open plan office/studio with a large double glazed screen giving a superb country outlook, and a kitchen area.

Outside, there is parking for numerous vehicles. The property is connected to mains water and has septic tank drainage. There is a quality Daikin Altherma airsource heating system providing under floor heating to ground and first floors.
