Reputedly one of the oldest Methodist Chapels in Leicestershire dating back to 1778 and steeped in local village history, Top Chapel House has been the subject of a painstaking conversion and restoration program by the current owners since 2015, converting the former delapidated Chapel into a handsome and most distinctive 3 bedroom family home with 3144 Sq ft of versatile living space spread over three floors. With an eye catching exterior, the interior successfully blends in the old with the new, traditional and modern with a stylish beautiful finish with the focal point being the huge living area, creating an incredible sense of space, characterised by the sweeping hardwood staircase to the galleried landing.
As you enter, you are immediately blown away by the sheer scale and vastness of the main living room, skilfully divided into living and dining areas, perfect for family entertaining, the bespoke kitchen has been expertly fitted with a comprehensive range of shaker style units & the utility room and cloakroom/wc complete the ground floor. The sweeping staircase leads to the magnificent galleried landing, a large versatile space with return staircases leading to the bedroom accommodation. The large master bedroom enjoys a vaulted ceiling and luxury en-suite, a second double bedroom is perfect for children and the main family bathroom has a stylish 4 piece suite with separate shower enclosure. On the third floor is bedroom three with it's own en-suite. There is also the potential to add and adapt to increase the number of bedrooms upto 4 or 5 if required.
Occupying a prominent south westerly facing corner plot in the heart of the village, the gardens have been carefully landscaped, with raised rockeries, pathways, two large private patio's, timber shed and a sweeping driveway which provides ample parking for several cars.
Please be advised that adjoining the property to the left hand side is the former school room to the chapel, a substantial dwelling that if acquired could be skilfully incorporated into the main body of the building enhancing the living space, this is not owned by the current occupiers, however, we are advised that this building will be available to the market later in 2021.
