Property description

Property summary If you want a property with the wow factor look no further, 'Crockerhill Chapel' retains some of its historical character and is set in the peaceful, rural hamlet where development is rare and a rather idyllic rural way of life is preserved. The chapel has been painstakingly transformed to include a northern wing constructed to match the former Mission School and Victorian chapel. When you invest in buying a Grade II listed property you are buying more than just a family home in an enviable location, you are also preserving a little slice of history for the next generation. This property is a true 'gem', being the winner of the 1994 Daily Telegraph Individual Homes Award for best refurbishment project. The accommodation flows well, taking advantage of natural sun light with large feature windows, a spiral staircase with glazed roof, an open living room with vaulted ceiling and doors to the attractive 0.7 acre gardens, a kitchen / dining room with glass & oak balustraded study area over and access to a basement. There are three bedrooms, a feature bathroom, utility room and potential further shower room and a large garage. The total square footage (including the garage) covers over 2,493 sq ft and the underfloor heating to the ground and first floors is supplied by hot water from an off peak electric heated thermal store within the garage. The historic village of Wickham with its wide Square, restaurants and shopping amenities are within a mile walk or by car approximately two miles.
