Property Description

Built in 2003, and designed by Maser Architects, Chapel Cottages drew its design inspiration from Upper Wield Manor. The thoughtful design with large bay windows, wide internal door openings and period features creates an exceptional home ideal for family life and entertaining. Thanks to great attention to detail the house blends the great practicality of a new home with the atmosphere and style of a much older country house. The large hall with utility and under floor heating is ideal for muddy boots and muddy dogs.

The adjacent kitchen is spacious and has an appealing breakfast area in front of the large bay window. There are also characterful beams and an Aga. Double doors lead into the large dining hall where there is a stone fireplace and stove and

continuing on into the superb drawing room with large bay windows and window seat overlooking the garden and fields beyond. The study has French doors out to the patio. The master bedroom with its delightful views benefits from an

ensuite and dressing area. A large arched window illuminates the staircase and landing which thanks to its size is a good room in itself and ideal as a second study or play area (this area might be included in a redesign to create further bedrooms). There is an additional useful dressing room (bedroom 4) with a pretty oval window and 2 double bedrooms one of which has walk in eaves storage.

The Chapel

Once the Methodist Chapel and built in 1848 this large light room (329 sq ft) would make an ideal games room or annex.

Outside

To the front of the house is a covered car port for 2 cars. There is also drive way parking for another 3 vehicles. Behind the house is a good shed/workshop and general storage area. To the side of the chapel is a pretty potting shed. There are attractive borders to the front and rear of the

house with gates leading to the glorious south west facing garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with attractive well stocked beds, summer house and pond. The garden is bounded by a brick and flint wall and fences. The property also benefits from a backup electric generator.
