Chapel Cottage presents painted rendered elevations with some double glazed windows beneath a slate roof as the name suggests the property was formally a Methodist chapel with adjoining cottage but was re-modelled as a dwelling incorporating both elements around 2008. The Chapel section is Grade II Listed as being of architectural and historical importance and there are many notable original features still in evidence which skilfully combine with quality 21st century refinements to make a unique and interesting home which is presented to a high standard. The property is currently utilised as a principal residence but would be also ideal as a second home/UK base/holiday let or a combination of such uses. Externally there is a courtyard to front, a pretty cottage garden to rear which backs on to farm land and boasts a large summerhouse suitable for use as home office/studio etc. Across the lane is a private parking bay and adjoining rented bay.
