Once in a blue moon we have the good fortune to offer for sale a property that sets itself apart from anything else, one that creates genuine excitement, fires the imagination and stirs the soul. This unique former chapel conjures up all of those emotions and will set your pulse racing with the intrigue of what to expect when you step over the threshold of this most striking of homes.
The chapel was originally built circa 1850 as a place of worship for those at the adjacent workhouse. Following many years of dereliction and debate about raising it to the floor, it was finally converted and restored in approximately 1991.
Once inside one has to adjust, just to enable yourself to take in the many wonderful period features and to believe that this is actually a residential property. Just as a taster, some of these features include the original entrance hall to the chapel, several exposed arches with 2 colour brick detailing, fabulous shaped leaded windows and opulent polished marble central pillars in both original reception rooms.
The vendors have extended and upgraded the property to a high standard to include the addition of a large dining room and kitchen/breakfast room which both boast exposed high timber vaulted ceilings. These rooms also have immense character, being split level from the rest of the property with exposed brick work in the dining room and a range of fitted and free standing rustic hand made cupboards in both. There is also an interesting and eye catching mix of ceramic and slate style tiled flooring throughout the ground floor.
The 3 bedrooms are located on the first and second floors and all benefit from individual en-suite facilities. This truly is a home for the discerning purchaser to cherish and enjoy.
NB There is a small annual charge of approx £300 for the upkeep of external communal areas, particularly the access road.
The Chapel is situated in the heart of Ottershaw village. Just around around the corner is are the local village high street which caters for everyday needs, including a post office/mini supermarket, a One-Stop supermarket, 2 takeaways, a pub, a Miller and Carter steak restaurant and a social club. The village enjoys a real spirit of community about it.
More comprehensive facilities can be found a little further afield in Addlestone and Chertsey whilst the larger towns of Woking, West Byfleet and Weybridge are a short drive, both offering main line access to London (Waterloo), as do nearby West Byfleet and Byfleet and New Haw station. Road connections in the area are excellent with Junction 11 of the M25 being a few minutes drive allowing easy access to Heathrow and Gatwick airports and central London. Good schools are also prevalent in this area including the very well regarded Ottershaw Infants and Junior schools.
