Chapel House Barn is a charming barn conversion which was converted in around 1989 and which the vendors have continued to maintain and improve over the years to offer well-proportioned and versatile accommodation extending to about 2,940 (GIA) in all. The considered conversion has created a well presented and appealing family home, maintaining a great deal of character and original features such as the Victorian cooking stove in the formal dining room. The property is complimented by a delightful one bedroom annexe with a cobbled courtyard and raised flower beds.

The principal entrance door opens from the rear of the property into the spacious entrance hallway with flagstone flooring, useful under stair storage and a cloakroom/wet room with underfloor heating which adjoins a ground floor guest bedroom/reception room.

Further along the hallway, steps lead down to an extensive formal sitting room with wooden floors and an impressive brick inglenook fireplace with log burner and seating nooks. Dual aspect windows look out onto both the attractive gardens and open countryside.

Flagstone tiles continue from the hallway into the spacious dining room with vaulted ceiling and exposed structural timbers where stairs rise to the first floor and a substantial exposed brick fireplace houses the Victorian cooking stove. The kitchen has a range of traditional wall and base units and terracotta tiled flooring and benefits from modern fitted appliances including an integrated oven, induction hob, dishwasher and freestanding wine fridge as well as a Rayburn housed within a brick fireplace, providing further cooking facilities, central heating and hot water for the property. A door leads outside from the kitchen onto a patio with pergola.

From the dining room, stairs rise to the first floor landing with ample storage and access to a double bedroom and four-piece family bathroom with roll-top bath. Steps lead down to a well-proportioned master bedroom which is fitted with a large range of built-in furniture and enjoys far reaching views of the countryside. Adjacent to the master bedroom, is a further double bedroom which the current owners utilise as a study.

Accessed externally is a home office which also serves well as a garden room.

Formally the double garage, the current owners have converted it into a large and very well presented one bedroom annexe with an open plan living-dining area housing a fireplace and electric log-burner, a separate kitchen with integrated appliances, WC, and first floor bedroom suite. A run of glass double doors in the living/dining room open out onto the cobbled courtyard and provide views of the gardens and countryside beyond.
