About This Property

Situated in a secluded and historic South Somerset village, this 5 bedroomed converted former chapel comes to the market for the first time since conversion. The property has accommodation over 3 floors, including feature open living spaces, galleried landing with gardens and grounds of 0.534 of an acre.

The original chapel was owned by the church until 2007 when it was purchased by our vendors, believing to date back to 1815 and built of attractive local stone elevations with beautiful stained glass full height windows to the galleried living area, with further timber bespoke double glazed sealed units to the rear sections. There is oil fired central heating and the ground floor benefits from underfloor heating. The vendors have painstakingly refurbished the property, keeping to traditional materials wherever possible, including French oak flooring to the main living space with oak upstands and balustrading to the raised walkway and snug area. The kitchen and utility area benefit from limestone fitted flooring and a sycamore staircase with carved wood from a tree which came from a family farm. There is also a wonderful pair of doors leading between the living space into the entrance reception area, which were imported from India. The accommodation is perfectly suited for family living with 2 generous size open spaces on the ground floor, the main reception room is double height and has full height windows with stained glass detailing, there is a fantastic wood burning stove. There is a large opening to the kitchen/family room with hand built wooden units, range stove and double Belfast sink, staircase to the first floor and French doors leading to the garden. Off the kitchen is a useful utility/boot room with stable door out and a generous sized wet room. On the first floor there is a feature galleried walkway with the windows stretching from the ground floor, together with a good sized snug/study. Set on the first floor there are 2 bedrooms, the largest of which has an en-suite along with walk in wardrobe, there are then 2 further bedrooms set to the 2nd floor area along with a Jack and Jill cloakroom with the guest bedroom having a feature bath and vaulted ceilings along with its own separate staircase down to the galleried walkway on the first floor level.
