Believed to have been a chapel to Blackwater House in the 1800s, this immaculate renovation by the current owners during the past seven years has included adding an extension.

Accessed from a shared driveway, this unique brick building with a wooden-effect cladded extension boasts a private gravel two-vehicle driveway to one side and a traditional-style open porch leading to a solid oak front door.

The ground floor includes a beautiful living room/dining area which is flooded with natural light from two Velux windows, expansive bifold doors to the side aspect which open into the garden and two windows to the front and rear.

Adjoining the living room/dining area is the cosy sitting room, which is naturally airy and features a multi-fuel burner which also fuels the heating, underfloor heating and water.

Positioned on a stone-effect tile and Moroccan tile hearth with a coordinating tile backdrop, the log burner is a characterful feature of this home.

The contemporary kitchen has white base and wall cabinets complete with an integrated breakfast bar, dark worktops, an electric hob and oven with a stainless-steel cooker hood above with an integrated extractor fan and lighting. There is space for a dishwasher and a double fridge/freezer too.

There is a utility room and handy cloakroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Bedroom one has traditional-style exposed floorboards, a white tongue and groove panelled wall and an alcove which currently houses a wardrobe.

Bedroom two is a naturally bright room with dual-aspect windows giving views over the garden.

The stylish modern bathroom has a white suite with a vanity hand-basin with a chrome mixer tap and a panel bath with chrome hot and cold taps.

In the corner of this room is a large shower cubicle within a clear glass enclosure which has a chrome shower head and matching shower controls.

Outside the living room/dining area there is a decked terrace spanning the length of the extension.

An area of grass stretches between the decking and the summerhouse and then on the other side of the path is a further raised grass area.

This beautifully landscaped garden also provides a terraced area with a wooden balustrade, leading to a small shed.

Surrounding this area are a series of raised beds with a variety of shrubs and plants. A mature apple tree sits at the end of the terrace.

To the side of the house is a large shed and a metal storage shed opposite.

The summerhouse has the potential for a home office, workshop or sunroom too.
