Once a village place of worship, the Wesleyan Chapel in Melsonby was reborn as a unique family home around ten years ago.
Showing faith in renovating this type of building, the previous owners have created a stylish success story that incorporates many of the more attractive original features of the 1866 chapel and reassigns the space to provide practical rooms.
As well as the arched, stained glass windows, there is a fabulous rose window to one end, all of which provide an attractive external view as well as bringing special light to the interior. Also preserved from the building's former use are the original chapel door and the half-glazed inner entrance doors, which now provide a lobby and grand entry into the reception hallway, which has a timber floor and old school radiators.
Straight ahead are a beautiful tiled bathroom with stained glass window, bath and separate shower, utility space and the modern kitchen, which has timber units, a breakfast bar and integrated appliances.
Then it's on to two double bedrooms, one being the stunning master which has two full height chapel windows to the front with d�cor very much in keeping with the chapel ambience. The second bedroom is a particularly interesting room having a staircase leading up to a mezzanine level office space, perfect for a teenager to combine sleep with study.
Leading on, and taking up the whole of the end of the property, is the huge living room with five full height chapel windows, a spectacular stone hearth with log-burning stove and wood panelling to the walls. A cavernous space, it is currently used as a lounge, dining room and games room, allowing for the whole family to gather and providing a great entertaining space, especially since a door leads out to the private, enclosed garden.
The main staircase goes to a third double bedroom and a long playroom, so an ideal level for younger children, or an alternative adults' room with dressing room.

Amenities - The outside space, watched over by gargoyles, has been adapted to great effect. There is a stone boundary wall with iron railing fencing and gate to the front followed by stone steps to the front door. Beyond this, new walls have been built to create an off-road, paved private parking area with raised border.
The south-facing garden is bordered by fence and hedging and has a lawn, a raised deck for outdoor dining, a stone store and timber summer house and store.
The chapel also offers the potential for further development into the roof space, which is divided into two 41ft long attics, one containing the rose window and increasing the whole property to 4,275sqft. A fourth bedroom, at least, could be created here and already has the appropriate planning consent in place.

Location - Melsonby is a popular village both for its traditional village features, which include the church, pub, primary school and large village green which hosts an annual community sports day for all ages and its proximity to the A1(M) and A66. It is an ideal location, just ten minutes from Richmond and also benefiting from the food outlets and gym at Scotch Corner with beauty salon. A local doctor's surgery is available in the next village of Aldbrough.
