A stylish and sympathetically converted former chapel, occupying a wonderful central village position, in the popular village of Clutton.
This supremely unique, character packed property, has been subject to a meticulous renovation schedule over recent years by its present owners to create what is now a truly bespoke family home full of modern-day convenience whilst not compromising the charm of this stunning ecclesiastical building.
The main entrance to the property is gained from the private gated driveway and leads into the ground floor accommodation, entering the reception hallway there is a large convenient matted area by the front door for decamping muddy shoes, that then leads onto a plush carpeted hall with an attractive oak staircase that rises to the first floor. Contemporary oak panelled doors lead to all rooms off the ground floor hallway, which include four individual double bedrooms, two of which feature ensuite bathrooms (all bedrooms and hallway have floor to ceiling fitted cupboards) along with the well-appointed family bathroom, complete with a bath and separate shower. All the rooms are decorated in subtle neutral tones and are fitted with modern 'Old School' styled radiators.
On the first floor there is a wonderful galleried landing area with oak doors that lead to each room. Another wonderfully unique feature of the home is that the living accommodation is all situated on the first floor, allowing you and your guests to cast your eyes over the incredible original features of the once beautiful chapel.
The carefully arranged layout of the property also allows you to enjoy direct access onto the garden from the first floor, as well as enjoying views out through the large sash windows of the surrounding countryside, and attractive roof lines of the village houses.
The glorious sitting room is a real show piece of the home with its splendid high ceilings, and stained-glass mullion window. There is a door leading out to a private stone balcony, a handsome wood burning stove, and double doors that link the sitting room into the separate dining room. As you may expect, the kitchen is another beautifully appointed room, fitted with modern shaker styled units in a stunning putty green finish, the units are complemented by a contrasting hardwood work surface. There are also several integrated appliances with space for a range style cooker and plumbing for a dishwasher. A spacious utility/laundry room adds further convenience and has a handy cloakroom that sits adjacent to it. The utility room also benefits from a door that leads directly out onto the balcony and sun terrace, and then to the garden beyond.
A wealth of character features can be found throughout this unique home with high vaulted ceilings with dramatic A framed beams and stained-glass windows with stone mullions reveals. The unusual arrangement of the property allows excellent and easy access into the garden from both the ground floor and first floor rooms. The property is well presented throughout with tasteful neutral decoration, plenty of storage, and has the added benefit of a double garage, ample parking and a pretty landscaped garden with neatly trimmed hedges, raised flower bed borders and in parts it is bordered by a beautiful local stone wall.
A truly distinctive and unique home, for someone looking for something that little bit different, with the perfect blend of old-world charm and contemporary refinements.
