The Old Wesleyan Chapel is situated in a delightful south facing position with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Conveniently situated between the northern end of Bassenthwaite Lake and the Georgian market town of Cockermouth, the property is ideally located for exploring the many outstanding areas of natural beauty, and visitor attractions of northwest Cumbria, and in particular, the Lake District National Park. Keswick, the principal tourist centre of the northern Lake District is just 10 miles to the south-east, and with Cockermouth only 5 miles to the west, there is a broad range of facilities and amenities readily to hand including excellent schools, shops, restaurants, etc.
The Chapel building has been considerably extended to provide very generously proportioned accommodation which retains much of the character of the former chapel, and in particular the lovely stained glass windows and the original full height chapel. The internal layout is, as one might expect, unconventional, but offers good sized rooms and considerable flexibility and potential to vary and adapt the use of the internal spaces.
The accommodation briefly comprises, on lower ground floor; entrance hall, main chapel room with full height ceiling, 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, workshop and garden store room. On upper ground floor is an alternative entrance leading to reception hall, large lounge, kitchen, and spacious conservatory, bathroom and sauna.On the first floor are 2 separate large under eaves rooms with independent stairs to each, both with ensuite facilities.The property has the benefit of gas central heating and part double glazing. Outside are large grounds extending to approximately three quarters of an acre providing ample hard standing for parking, and some delightful terraced garden areas with fine views over the surrounding countryside.The grounds are surrounded by mature woodland.
The organ pictured on the back of the brochure, is not included in the sale and is due to be removed in the near future.
