Score Chapel is Grade II listed and was originally constructed in 1855 and sits in the peaceful and picturesque tree-lined Score Valley on the outskirts of the town. Despite its quiet, tucked away semi-rural location, the property is still within easy reach of the town's amenities and the seafront. The property was been converted to a high specification retaining as many original features as possible by blending the old characterful façade with its high arch shaped windows, stone elevations and natural slate roof with a modern interior ideal for 21st century living.
The property has considerable appeal with light and airy accommodation arranged over two floors. The 'Chapel feel' is evident within the entrance to the building which gives access into a good sized lobby through large solid oak 'Church style' doors. The lobby has an original natural stone floor and oak framed glazed double doors which open into the main living area of the property. This main space is designed with modern open plan living in mind and comprises of a contemporary and well fitted kitchen with a range of sleek black units and work surfaces, integrated with a fridge, a stainless steel 5 ring gas hob with stainless steel extractor canopy over and stainless steel electric oven. There is a separate utility room which has matching fitted base and wall units integrated with a washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer and the Worcester condensing boiler for the central heating and hot water. The kitchen and utility room are finished with a stone floor and leading from the utility room is a cloakroom/wc.
The kitchen area opens into the lounge and dining space for the home which has an attractive solid oak floor and has feature high arched shaped stone framed windows with double glazed leaded light insets and stained glass. At the far end of the living room is an impressive full height window which extends above the ceiling height up to the first floor. A clever design of inserting a toughened glass panel into the floor of the room above allows the window to be viewed in its entirety from the ground floor thus retaining the full impact of this original feature. A bespoke solid beech staircase leads to the first floor onto a good sized landing.
Moving to the first floor, there are two equal sized double bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings reaching a height of just over 11ft to the apex. Bedroom 1 has a range of built in cupboards and wardrobes with a mezzanine level 'gallery' with ladder access and a further access via a ladder to a loft area ideal for storage, a play area or even as an occasional sleeping platform. Bedroom 2 has the unusual glass panelled section in the floor, overlooking the living room and being strong enough to walk on. Again there are a range of fitted cupboards and wardrobes.
The family bathroom has a modern white suite comprising of a rolled top bath with 'telephone' shower attachment, wash hand basin, large walk in shower cubicle and wc. There is a heated towel rail, halogen down lighters and speakers wired into the sound system.
Outside, the property is approached via a driveway from the road. There is plenty of parking for several cars and space to erect a garage subject to any necessary consent. The plot is of good size and amounts to approximately 1/3 acre with scope for further landscaping to establish the garden. An old stone built wall forms the boundary to the road and extends around to the rear of the property. There are pleasant views over surrounding fields and wooded valley.
The property is an ideal permanent residence but would also afford a comfortable high quality second home or holiday let and we fully advise an internal inspection to fully appreciate the character of the conversion.
