Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A distinctive, two bedroom, first floor apartment which is set within extensive and well-kept communal grounds.

Situated in the heart of Charlton Down, this individual apartment, converted from the Grade II Listed Gothic chapel offers versatile and contemporary living.

South-facing and well-lit, much of the apartment's original detail is still very much in evidence. The kitchen area is well-proportioned and subtly arranged to one side of the open plan room. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units providing plenty of storage space. There is a Range cooker (5 burner), extractor fan, 1.5 bowl sink unit, plumbing for a dishwasher/washing machine and a useful breakfast bar.

The open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room is partly under a wonderful vaulted ceiling and benefits from underfloor heating beneath a wooden floor. The interior is focussed around two large windows, which frame the beautiful communal gardens and the far-reaching views towards Dorchester.

Returning to the entrance hall, stairs lead to the first floor and there is a useful under stairs cupboard and window. A shower room is also on this level and is contemporary in style with stone flooring, recessed lighting, shower cubicle, pedestal wash-hand basin and a corner WC. The gas fired boiler is also located here.

The master bedroom enjoys the full advantage of the vaulted ceiling being located on the mezzanine level and looking across the balcony to the views beyond. Partially divided, this room is currently arranged with a dressing room. Bedroom two is a small double room which whilst not on the mezzanine level, has its own charm and character with an exposed timber ceiling and low level window.

On the first floor there is also a bathroom with bath with shower screen and shower attachment, w/c and a pedestal wash-hand basin.

Outside, the extensive and well-kept communal grounds are a particularly attractive feature of this beautifully converted building, incorporating large lawned areas with shrub and flower borders as well as access to the village cricket ground.
