This cosy cottage is not Listed, having been restored and extended during the 1970’s using reclaimed historic oak timbers from local sources, understood to be on the site of the original “chapel”. The sympathetic improvements made to this property created a one-of-a-kind family home, blending its period charm with modern conveniences.

On the ground floor, an open-plan Hatt kitchen connects to the snug and dining room, complemented by a convenient utility space. The spacious sitting room features an inglenook fireplace and retains characterful timber beams, reflecting the property’s charm.

Upstairs, four good-sized bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. Each bedroom offers delightful views of the garden or surrounding countryside. Set within approximately 0.4 acres, the property is surrounded by trees, providing a secluded atmosphere. A private drive offers ample parking, accompanied by a detached double garage for added convenience.


Driveway
Concealed within the surrounding countryside, Chapel Cottage is tucked away from the lane and approached down a private driveway with gravel parking area to the frontage. A useful double garage and timber workshop sits at the front of the property, equipped with power, lighting, and water. It also offers ample storage space for equipment.

Entrance
A solid oak entrance door leads into the dining and stairway hall with slate flooring, providing an inviting atmosphere to both the homeowners and guests.

Sitting Room
Another oak door opens into the warm and cosy sitting room, which features a stone inglenook fireplace with a Clearview wood burning stove and a solid oak floor. Characterful timber beams enhance the atmosphere and triple aspect windows provide panoramic views of the garden.

Kitchen
The Hatt breakfast kitchen features a variety of wall and floor mounted cabinets with quartz worktops. The kitchen also includes integral appliances such as a Beko ceramic hob with an electric oven below, dishwasher and fridge. The centrepiece of the kitchen is a traditional oil-fired Aga.

Connecting to the kitchen is the rear porch and boot room, which has a convenient door leading to the outside.

Utility Room and Cloakroom
Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room, which used to be a larder, and also a cloakroom with comprises of a low-level WC, washbasin and obscure-glazed window to the garden.

First Floor
An open oak staircase leads to the first floor of the property, which features a significant landing and study area, as well as a beautiful picture window that offers a lovely view of the garden.

There are four charming bedrooms, two of which are generously sized doubles with dual aspect windows and exposed oak timbers, allowing for plenty of natural light and adding to their character.

Bedroom One
The first bedroom is a double room - the most spacious out of the four - and features three casement windows that overlook the wraparound gardens and surrounding countryside, flooding in ample natural light.

Bedroom Two
The second bedroom is also a double room, but only features two casement windows, still overlooking the beautiful wraparound gardens. Using the exposed timber frames as support, shelving has been built into the wall as extra storage space.

Bedrooms Three and Four
While only being single rooms, bedrooms three and four feature casement windows that also overlook the mature wraparound gardens and flood in ample natural light which make the rooms feel more spacious.

Family Bathroom
The family bathroom is equipped with a white suite, including a shower over the bath. It even has underfloor heating for added comfort.


Gardens and Grounds
These beautiful wraparound gardens are a particularly impressive feature of this property. Meticulously designed and landscaped, the gardens are adorned with a variety of rare and mature shrubs and trees. Additionally, there is a well-maintained grass pathway with abundant and well-stocked borders.

At the back of the property, there is a sunny open lawn area that slopes down to a stream. A charming timber deck serves as a fantastic space for entertaining. The garden is enclosed by a combination of mixed hedgerow and post and wire fencing. Furthermore, it offers stunning views of a neighbouring orchard, paddock, and the valley beyond, with Abberley Clock Tower visible in the distance.

Oil fired central heating, mains electricity and water, and septic tank.
