This former church has been converted to provide a distinctive and substantial family home which is full of quaint and quirky features found only in conversions of this type. There is scope for further development within the building including the upstairs storage area with original arched stained glass window and the tower which can be accessed from its own external door.
Its features include high ceilings, large windows, a wood panelled hallway running round the centre of the house, French doors in the dining room and lounge and contemporary bathroom suites in the main bathroom and the en-suite.
The kitchen is fitted out with a range of pine units with rattan fronted cabinets at eye level and partly granite worktops and has a gas range cooker. While the kitchen area has a tiled floor the dining room has a real wood floor and features wall panelling and vaulted ceiling with feature beams.
There is an abundance of storage space throughout the house with fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms (except no 2) and built in cupboards in the hallway. Excellent concealed storage is offered by the stairs in the master bedroom. The games/ hobby room, originally intended as a store could be put to a whole variety of uses according to the eventual purchasers requirement. It is believed that the upper storage area, with double stairs leading up to it, could be converted to provide further living accommodation with an original vaulted ceiling and stained glass window.
The garage is integrated with the house and is accessed from the hall.
The house is located in extensive mature garden grounds and is accessed by its own track through mature woodland lying to the rear.
The gardens are laid in various “rooms” and include a courtyard garden adjacent to the house, a parterre garden, Japanese garden, Mediterranean garden and fruit growing area. A manmade stream runs through the garden grounds and flows into a large pond.
A conservatory offers an outside sun room with surrounding decking. Throughout the garden are various sitting areas from which to enjoy the gardens and the various aspects it has to offer.
There is mains gas central heating and a public water supply. Sewerage is to a septic tank.
All carpets and floor coverings will be included in the sale
