Charming converted chapel with attached school house. Both have separate titles and can be sold apart.


The Old Chapel

This delightful chapel conversion, listed grade II is located in the pleasant village of Throop. The stylishly presented accommodation, retains much of the chapel’s original character and detailing. Bournemouth town centre is just three miles away, yet the property sits on the edge of rolling Dorset countryside, offering the best of both town and country living, with the sea close by.

The chapel’s main living area is a pleasantly light and airy space, taking advantage of the double- height vaulted ceiling and the traditional arched windows thus creating a splendid openplan sitting room, dining area and kitchen. The property benefits from both underfloor heating and a gas-fuelled wood burning stove to help create a cosy atmosphere while the kitchen features smart grey units and granite worktops, with a Belfast sink and integrated appliances. Throughout the building, original features such as the intricately carved wood panelling, have either been retained or repurposed, making for a unique and highly attractive property. The chapel was constructed in 1828 as Throop Independent Chapel, later Throop United Reform Church until its closure in 2009.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, along with the family bathroom, while on the upper level there is a grand master bedroom with a freestanding bathtub and washbasin with separate WC.

Old School House

The Old School House, listed Grade II, is a pleasant conversion of a highly attractive period red brick school house. It has been cleverly and sympathetically renovated to provide three bedrooms and an open-plan living space, while retaining much of the building’s charm and character. With lovely travetine flooring throughout the ground floor, with underfloor central heating and solid slate flooring in the bathroom, it is clear no expense has been spared. The kitchen is perfection with a Rangemaster cooker, wine fridge, integrated appliances and plenty of cupboards with granite worktops. The open-plan ground floor living accommodation benefits from the vaulted ceiling of the Old Schoolhouse, creating a pleasant and spacious setting. The original arched windows provide plenty of natural light and give the house an individual quality. Wood panelling and exposed brickwork have been retained, while other features have been neatly redesigned. The sitting area and dining room offer plenty of space in which to relax.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, plus a luxurious shower room, while upstairs there is a delightful mezzanine master suite, with an en suite bathroom and separate cloakroom.
