Set close to the heart of this ever-popular village with views over the cricket field to the rear, this unique, first floor apartment is one of just two within the attractively converted former Wesleyan Chapel. Briefly, the accommodation also comprises an impressive hallway, an open plan living dining kitchen, two bedrooms – one with en suite – a further bathroom and a utility room. There is parking for one car and a private courtyard garden to the side and rear.
Stepping from the roadside and through the arched, solid oak chapel doors, the grand shared entrance hallway gives access to both the ground and first floor apartments. The impressive space retains many character features including the lead-lined stained-glass windows and the stone mullion windows and the full-height entrance hall offers a wide double turn staircase to the first-floor landing and the apartments front door.
The hardwood front door of the landing opens into an inner hallway which passes the two bedrooms and leads into the open-plan living dining kitchen area via a half-glazed timber door.
The spacious, open-plan living dining space feels light and airy with Velux skylight windows in the vaulted ceilings and a large timber double glazed window to the rear overlooking the rear walled courtyard gardens and cricket field beyond. The timber floors run through the open space and the original chapel beams and arches intersect the space creating natural break in the open plan room. The kitchen consists of a range of oak units with light grey work-tops over and an inset stainless-steel sink unit drainer. Also inset is a four-burner gas hob with extractor fan over and a single oven and grill below. The remaining oak units offer an integrated dishwasher, under-counter fridge and under-counter freezer as well as ample storage.
The master bedroom offers a good-sized double room with vaulted ceilings, exposed roof purlins, Velux skylight and timber floors throughout. There is a built-in cupboard to one end which offers good eaves storage. A timber door leads into the en-suite with pedestal basin, low flush WC and shower cubicle having an electric shower unit. Again, the ceiling is vaulted and there is a Velux skylight.
The second bedroom sits opposite the master bedroom and, again, is a double room with vaulted ceilings, Velux skylight, characterful beams and timber floors.
Finally, just off the open-plan kitchen living dining area is the separate bathroom which is fitted with a four-piece white suite with pedestal basin, low flush wc, timber panelled bath and quadrant shower cubicle with electric shower.
A timber half-turn staircase which separates the body of the kitchen from the living area leads down to a ground floor utility room offering a good-sized reception area, storage, a range of kitchen units with work tops over, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and housing the gas central heating combination boiler. There is a timber window to the rear and a half-glazed timber door opens to the rear courtyard garden.
To the right-hand side of the main entrance way, a broad cobbled path offers vehicular parking for one. The cobbled pathway is bordered by a low brick wall which runs its length and leads down the body of the chapel to the steps leading to the rear entrance of Apartment 2, and on to the small cobbled courtyard area just beyond. Again, the rear boundary is walled, creating a private and sheltered seating area.
NB - The loft space has been boarded to create a good-sized storage space which is accessed by loft ladder and has lighting.
