A fabulous renovation of a former chapel house with gated off road parking for 2 cars

A beautiful Grade I Listed family home, created from an historically important building. Formerly a convent school, the building was converted in the 1990s. The property has just been completely renovated throughout by the current owner and overseen by the well regarded interior designer, Naomi Cleaver. The Chapel House is set in a gated courtyard with a private garden terrace and landscaped communal gardens of over half an acre incorporating part of the City's historic 'Roman Wall' The recent renovations include; new carpets and window dressings throughout, re-decoration throughout, new bathrooms in the 3 ground floor bathrooms, the fitting of a smart (NEST) heating system, new radiators in the chapel and bespoke book cases/ radiator covers, alarm/ CCTV and new lighting throughout. Other improvements include repairs and repainting of external windows/ drainpipes/ gutters, repointing, replacement of flat roof and joists in the kitchen, refurbishment of windows, polishing and refinishing of wooden floors and wood panelling As soon as one steps into the property one is aware of the impressive scale of the building which was originally built in 1928. The hallway leads to 4 good sized bedrooms, 2 of which are en suite and 3 of which overlook the beautiful gardens. On the lower ground floor there is a large cellar where the pressurised hot water system is housed along with twin gas boilers. This area is ideal for storage. Wide stairs with wooden balustrading lead to a spacious first floor landing where there is an original oak and pivoted stained glass screen beyond which is the superb open plan living and dining room which was converted from the original chapel. The kitchen is fitted to a high standard and there is a gym room beyond here. A snug/office/bedroom 5 is situated on the top floor.

Outside

To the rear of the property there is a private terrace garden and this overlooks the communal lawns which extend to over ½ an acre. There are two private car parking spaces in the gated courtyard to the front.
