Chapel on the Water is a quite stunning conversion of an old Wesleyan chapel dating back to 1839 and now presented as a fabulous family home. The house has wonderful entertaining space and perfectly fits the requirements of todays modern lifestyle with a fabulous contemporary kitchen/breakfast room/ living area overlooking the beautiful garden. The attractive entrance belies the space to be found inside and the full-height drawing room is a wonderful surprise, with a view right down the length of the house to the garden beyond. Much thought has been put into retaining some of the original features including the original floorboards which have been used upstairs, and the vestry doors, yet the property has a modern and contemporary feel with floor to ceiling doors and windows in the breakfast room, and the property is filled with natural light. In addition to the kitchen/breakfast room area and the drawing room, there is a very good sized family room, a study/office and a fantastic cosy party room/snug with a pizza oven and working fireplace. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, including bedroom 2 which has a one-way tinted glass wall that overlooks the drawing room below if desired.
The beautiful south facing garden extends down to the river at the bottom and there is a fabulous view across the water meadows beyond. The kitchen doors open onto a terrace area and a beautiful box parterre, with steps leading down to a further large terrace area. The lawn is edged with attractive shrubs and flower borders and there is a further seating area by the edge of the river. The property has the huge advantage of having an off-street parking space a short distance down the High Street.
