A wonderfully presented converted chapel on the Lambourn Downs
Battens Chapel Cottage is a wonderfully presented converted chapel that in part dates back to circa 1850 with additions in the 19th and 20th centuries.The current owners have updated, extended, and significantly improved the property. The original reception hall leads into a spacious living room with a vaulted ceiling, Gothic arch and stained glass windows. There is a Clearview wood burner stove which is set in a bespoke Bath stone fireplace.The kitchen/breakfast room has a Rayburn cooker, natural slate stone floors, and underfloor heating. Bedrooms two and three are on the ground floor. A wrought iron staircase leads up to the gallery/mezzanine. This could be used as a study/additional sitting room or even an additional bedroom.There are French doors leading to the front garden. To the rear of the garden there is a wonderful large traditional oak-framed barn with significant storage above. The barn would make an ideal annexe or home office (Subject to planning). All the utilities are already connected.
