This substantial detached chapel conversion is situated in the village of Newport, which is well placed for easy access to the A38 and adjoining M5 motorway network. The property is within a few minutes drive of the historic town of Berkeley, which has a good range of local shops, library and doctors surgery. The village also has easy access to Cam, Dursley, Thornbury and Wotton-under-Edge, which all provide a range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities.


If travelling from Cam and Dursley, join the A38 and proceed in a southerly direction until reaching the village of Newport. Proceed through the village, turning right into Chapel Hill and bearing left and The Old Chapel will be found after approximately 200 metres on the left hand side.


This impressive characterful chapel conversion offers extremely spacious accommodation being converted by the current owner approximately 12 years ago to a good standard and retaining many of the character features. The accommodation is accessed via the original chapel doors leading to a most attractive panelled entrance porch, this in turn leads to a spacious 36 foot living room/dining room with wood burner and french doors opening onto the garden. There is a 21 foot kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a good range of units and on the ground floor there are two double bedrooms; which are serviced by a central shower room. On the first floor there is a further 26 foot living room, which is triple aspect and two further bedrooms along with bathroom/second wc. The accommodation benefits from electric heating and is set in gardens to front and both sides, with patio, lawn and some of the original gravestones, which we understand can be relocated if required.
