Situated within an impressive Grade II former Methodist chapel, this duplex-style ground floor apartment is arguably one of the prime apartments within this imposing conversion.

Offering deceptive two bedroomed accommodation over two floors, this is a most unusual home which features character and quirkiness not usually found within this type of property. Approached via an impressive door to the common entrance, a door opens onto the ground floor hallway which leads to the apartment. There is a generous kitchen/dining room on the ground floor with imposing windows and a bedroom leading off.  Turning stairs lead to the first floor lounge which is well proportioned, and has a balustrade overlooking the ground floor, and access to the second bedroom.  There is a bathroom on the ground floor, heating is provided via a gas fired central heating system and there is allocated parking available to the rear of the building. 

This property requires a closer inspection to be fully appreciated and viewing our online virtual tour is strongly recommended prior to arranging a closer inspection.
