The Chapel is a former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel built in 1896, it is a magnificent and unique property that has been the subject of an extensive refurbishment programme, cleverly and lovingly restored by the current owner providing spectacular accommodation presented to an exceptionally high standard and resulting in an outstanding home. No amount of attention to detail has been spared from retaining the balcony frieze and pillars, renovating the italianate corbels, replicating the missing cornicings to restoring the Victorian stained glass windows as well as sourcing vintage radiators from the era creating a truly original property.

To the front of the property is a beautiful italianate portico that protects two sets of double front doors that open into the impressive entrance hall, it features the original decorative tiles as well as wood panelling. On either side of the hall are doors that lead into two parallel rooms, currently designed as a gentleman’s room and a ladies boudoir they offer the potential to create additional reception rooms. The heart of the property is the breathtaking central drawing room that was the amphitheatre of the chapel. This incredible light and airy space rising to a 50 foot ceiling with marble decorative flooring boasts the original pulpit which creates an eye catching feature as does the stunning gallery above; it provides a wonderful entertaining area as well as living area. Adjacent and running the whole length of the drawing room is a wonderful orangery, this leads to the stylish breakfast kitchen which benefits from an Ilve range cooker with an induction hob, there is an abundance of storage with clever upcycling of the church pews to provide kitchen floor and wall units, and the sleek marble work surfaces and copper double sink compliment the whole colour scheme.

the elegant library with a wall of floor to ceiling bookshelves. There is also a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The majority of the bedroom accommodation therefore can be found at the front of the property, all benefit from spectacular luxury modern en-suites. Leading up the west staircase is the master bedroom suite which boasts a double height ceiling, two beautiful stained glass windows and large fitted wardrobes, there is also access out to a generous south facing private balcony, an ideal place to enjoy the sunshine. Steps lead up to the en-suite bathroom that features a deep free standing roll top copper bath, a separate walk-in shower and double sinks crafted out of fossilized wood.
