This is an immensely beautiful part of the local history, being the original St. Andrew's Church. Flooded with natural light from the large stained glass windows, the original features have been retained inside and out, from the grand sweeping beams of the vaulted ceiling, the wood block and quarry tile floors leading to the elevated altar area, and even the bell tower atop the roof. Outside the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with well-established mature trees, orchard to the rear and hedged boundaries creating privacy.
Full Planning Permission (16/03032/FUL) has been granted to convert the existing Church into a dramatic full-height open plan living space, incorporating a spacious Breakfast Kitchen, Dining Area and Family Area with a Cellar beneath. Beyond this is a contemporary two storey extension providing a large Drawing Room with tranquil views to the rear overlooking the orchard/gardens and a Bedroom with Walk-in Wardrobe and Shower Room. To the First Floor there are a further three Bedrooms and Family Bathroom which completes an approximately 2,152 sq.ft. unique blend of historic and contemporary living in a delightful rural setting.
Please note that we have not checked any of the electrics throughout the building. All prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves on this point prior to entering the contract.
