Chain free, this beautiful former chapel is believed to date back to the 1820s and was sensitively rebuilt and converted from a derelict state about five years ago. The owners were meticulous in their attention to detail and the renovation was completed to very exacting standards. As part of the ground up project, a stunning oak framed conservatory was added, along with high specification oak flooring, a smart new kitchen, bathroom and ensuite shower room. There is a fascinating photo album in the living room, which visually details the extensive works carried out, along with an insight into the quirks and headaches that the owners and their craftsmen had to overcome along the way.

Since the restoration was finished, the property has been used as a second home and also as a successful AirBNB holiday let, particularly popular with visitors to Goodwood and lovers of the West Sussex countryside. Situated in the South Downs hamlet of Watersfield, wonderful walks are available almost from the doorstep. There are two allocated parking spaces, accessed from River Lane, with gated pedestrian access to the front and rear of the grounds.

Sitting on the very edge of the hamlet, overlooking countryside, the property offers almost 950sq ft of living space over two floors. The open plan living / dining / kitchen space feels surprisingly light and airy, with a superb oak staircase rising to the first floor. Both bedrooms are doubles and there is a useful ground floor cloakroom / wc off the enclosed porch.

Standing within a good sized plot, the next owner will need to be sensitive to the needs of visitors to the graveyard plots, albeit I'm told that only a couple are regularly visited by relatives.
