About the Property
Arranged over two floors the accommodation comprises; entrance porch with pamment floor, double height dual aspect 'L' shaped living room with vaulted ceiling featuring a canted bay, study with spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine floor above, kitchen and utility room with cloak cupboard.

A further staircase rises to a galleried landing overlooking the living room benefitting from a vaulted ceiling and an opening (believed to be a former doorway) to an adjacent vaulted room that has a gable window. The living room offers sitting and dining areas and can be accessed via the kitchen and study. There are four ground floor double bedrooms, a family bathroom equipped with a bath and a shower, an en-suite shower room serving the guest bedroom and en-suite facilities serving the master bedroom. The octagonal master bedroom is situated to the rear of the property and features a canted bay with French doors opening to the garden, an ornate roof lantern, en-suite wet room style shower and an en-suite WC with dual sinks.

Outside, the property is approached by a pea shingle drive that provides ample off road parking and leads to a garage with an adjacent lean to. The garden is predominantly laid to grass with a selection of mature trees and a garden shed. The front garden is retained by a dwarf red brick wall and the side and rear gardens have fenced boundaries. The exterior of the property features a bell tower and there is a boiler room beneath the study that houses the gas fired boiler, water softener and water tank.

Viewing is essential to appreciate the character and full potential of this unique period home, the size of the gardens and favourable position. The Old Chapel is located within the much requested Melton Park development (near Woodbridge) that enjoys a parkland setting extending to about 50 acres including woodland and privately owned golf course.

About the Area
Melton Park is a popular development on the edge of Melton Village on the western side of the River Deben, approximately 1¼ miles north east of the market town of Woodbridge. Woodbridge is steeped in history and well served with a fine selection of shops and restaurants; it has its own theatres, swimming pool, doctors, dentists and railway station on the Ipswich/Lowestoft/East Suffolk line. The County town of Ipswich is ten miles south west of Woodbridge and benefits from a railway station located on the Great Eastern Main Line approximately 70 miles North East of London Liverpool Street Station and a journey time of approximately 1 hour 10 minutes.

From the Fine & Country Woodbridge office, continue on Church Street and turn right onto New Street at The Bull Hotel. Continue down New Street and then turn left onto St Johns Hill. At the traffic lights, turn left and continue down the hill until another set of traffic lights adjacent to Melton Primary School. Continue straight on through Melton High Street and follow the road round for approximately 1.7 miles until you reach the entrance to St Audrys Park Road. Turn left into St Audrys Park Road and continue on towards the roundabout, just before you reach the roundabout, turn left into Calder Road. As you turn into Calder Road, The Old Chapel will be on the right hand side.
