Woodlands is a converted chapel in Hampshire which incorporates an adjoining cottage to provide an excellent country property with some modern touches in a sought-after rural setting.

The property was originally a chapel in the Parish of West Meon in Hampshire dating back to 1889 with double-glazed windows under a tiled roof. The house has been in the same ownership for nearly 30 years and has been imaginatively converted into a first-class residence.

In 1990 the first floor level was installed within the original chapel to provide two bedrooms and a bathroom; approximately four years ago a further conversion was completed to include the installation of a fantastic kitchen with adjoining conservatory and a vaulted open plan bedroom under the bell tower. In 2008 the cottage was extended to include a double garage on the ground floor with a principal bedroom and bath/shower room on the first floor.

Period features have been retained and include original woodblock flooring, the bell tower and the original windows which include a magnificent crucifixion scene over the raised kitchen area.

The garden provides a delightful setting for the house and has a wide selection of plants and shrubs and includes a well and a raised area – the secluded part of garden to the west of the house enjoys good views out over the surrounding countryside.

Woodlands Chapel and Cottage is set amidst the peaceful Hampshire countryside in the Meon Valley to the north west of Alresford; to the east is the market town of Petersfield and both provide good every day amenities. There is a mainline railway station at Alton, just over ten miles distant.

The guide price is £700,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01962 869 999 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
