4 bedroom converted chapel – HaptonAsking Price Of £695,000
Property DetailsLocation Hapton Chapel is quite hidden from view in the village and set well back form the road in an elevated position. The village has a primary school and church and is surrounded by a gently rolling landscape of farm and woodland. The ever popular town of Wymondham is just 5 miles away from where there is a rail service on the Norwich to Cambridge line with connections to London Kings Cross. Norwich is only 9 miles to the north and has all one would hope of a cultural city including an international airport.
The Property Hapton Chapel is an amazing combination of period character with a superb contemporary styled extension to the rear. The oldest part of Hapton Chapel was built in the village in the mid 18th Century but the building itself has origins dating back possibly a further 200 years. The Chapel was a meeting house for 'Dissenters' and used as such for many years but fell into disuse in the mid 20th Century and was subsequently converted into a house in the 1970's. The current owners have continued in their stewardship of the original part and have added their own mark with the addition of a very contemporary extension with the heavy use of glass and wood. Whilst being clearly modern it does take elements from the original part and does not jar with the original but rather adds to it. The combination of these two ages gives a mix of room styles and sizes ranging from the cosy to the bright and spacious.
Outside One of the lovely aspects to this house is its grounds which are principally to the rear of the Chapel. To the front is the driveway and a detached garage. Immediately behind the chapel is a series of decked areas and terraces complementing the modern style of this part. This leads onto the main garden which is divided into a series of pockets of gardens giving so much interest and diversity; there are areas of trees including many specimen ones, viewing areas, walkways, and a more formal area with box hedging. The grounds overall extend to 0.615ha (1.52ac).
Agents Note The first section of the driveway is shared. There is a public footpath running through the grounds up to the village green space which is fenced off. There is also a right of access to the neighbouring village burial ground (not part of this property).
Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired Stanley providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
Directions From Norwich heading south on the A140 towards Long Stratton. After Tasburgh and before Long Stratton turn right at the crossroads with the B1135 and follow this into Hapton. The Driveway is after the garage on the right hand side not long before leaving the village.
