Double oak doors lead into the entrance hall which gives the first glimpse of what this individual property has to offer. Many of the original features such as exposed stone walls and wooden panelling have been retained. A carved wooden board inscribed with the prefect's names of Oakley Hall School hangs above the front door. A wide wooden staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor. In the stairwell a study area has been created. The entrance hall and corridor which runs the entire length of the chapel has oak flooring with underfloor heating. The corridor provides a wonderful contrast between old and new with the original stone wall on one side, and on the other, the new wall has down lights creating the perfect place to display pictures or artworks. At the end of the corridor a guest space has been created with a fold away double bed being discreetly stored within a built in wooden cupboard.
From the corridor there is access through a fully glazed panelled door to a lobby area providing access to the two bedrooms, the main bathroom and a door out into the rear garden. These rooms all have underfloor heating and have been created from the new building which sits within the walls of the chapel and allows the mezzanine floor above to act as the first floor of the property.
The master double bedroom has a walk in wardrobe as well as a built in linen cupboard. The part exposed stone wall and pillar makes a real feature. An internal window provides natural light into the room from the exterior chapel walls. A frosted wooden panelled door leads into the en suite shower room which has been fitted with a high specification suite comprising a walk in double shower, with a shower head at either end of the fully tiled shower, twin sinks with vanity units, toilet and limestone floor tiles.
The second double bedroom has a part exposed stone wall and an internal window looking out to the original chapel.
The main bathroom has a tiled floor, large contemporary stand-alone bath, corner shower unit, sink and toilet.
The mezzanine floor sits within the walls of the original chapel and has created an open plan living space. This allows the beauty of the vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and stone arches to be admired as the light fills this area through the gothic leaded windows.
The mezzanine divides into three spaces; sitting, dining and kitchen area. There are glass balustrades to two sides of the mezzanine floor and underfloor heating throughout.
The kitchen with stainless steel railings, has ceiling cabinets finished to an extremely high standard, Zebrano worktops and a built in range style oven with a six burner gas hob, microwave, and fridge/freezer.
The island unit, again with Zebrano work tops has a built in stainless steel sink and built in dishwasher. To one end of the island there is a breakfast bar area.
The Chapel is approached through a private driveway leading to a shared courtyard area and a parking bay for three cars. To the edge of the courtyard there is a border containing a variety of shrub and trees and a garden shed. The rear garden has a sheltered decking area, lawn and a patio with raised planters to two sides creating a wonderful outdoor entertaining space. From the decking, steps take you up to the rear lobby. Under the decked staircase there is a built in storage area, perfect for storing garden furniture when not in use.
