Stop press - Big bang for your buck... This superbly located family home is only 5 minutes from the A55, 1 hour from Liverpool and Manchester and is only a 10 minute walk to the south Coast of the Irish sea.
This wonderful property has been in private hands for the last twenty years and during this time a metamorphic change took place that will open your eyes. The property is freehold and has a stunning mature garden, even the old original well is still flowing. Within this Church you get security, privacy, space, and it also comes fully furnished
Nestled in Old Colwyn, this exceptional building has character features reminiscent of a Tuscan farmhouse interwoven with a British stately home. Think low beams and ceilings, stone floors, interior stained glass windows and a stepped suntrap terrace on both sunrise and sunset sides of the property. Oh and did we mention there`s an outdoor pizza oven and firepit? There really is a treasure to find at every turn!
Ideally set close to multiple amenities in the very heart of this historic part of Old Colwyn and a short stroll to the promenade and seafront, this non-listed, freehold property is looking for a new owner to enjoy its unique home qualities, and even share them with others by turning it into a thriving business.
To enter the home section of the property, there is a sloped path leading to large Oak doors at the rear of the chapel. The first room to greet you is a large hallway ? big enough to house an upright piano ? with ample space for shoe storage, hat and coat racks and one of the chapel`s original pews.
A door leads to the heart of the home, the quirky kitchen/diner, where original features abound. There`s the traditional stove oven, Belfast sink under a large sash window, ornately carved wooden cabinets and space for table and chairs.
A second door from the kitchen leads to stairs up to the first floor, or back out into a long hallway accessing two of the double bedrooms and the lounge. The two double bedrooms here are both a good size, with high ceilings, sash windows and wooden floors. The lounge or sitting room has plenty of original features once again, with a few steps into and out of the room, wooden beams, a sash window and a small stage area.
From the lounge there is a small hall leading to a lovely third double bedroom with two sash windows and its own en suite, where there is a large, tiled rain shower, toilet and sink. A second ground floor bathroom next to the lounge has a good-size standalone bath, toilet and basin, stone floor and large window.
Up to the first floor is the fourth double bedroom with its own en suite. A beautifully lit room with picture rails and parquet floor, a door leads through to a separate toilet, and then a bathroom with basin. The bath is particularly special thanks to its grey slate sides.
Wooden stairs lead up to the second floor and a business opportunity waiting to be explored from buyers with a creative mind. Here the main part of the old chapel has two levels, the top section being a mezzanine balcony overlooking the lower half. There`s a wooden bar and stage, super high ceilings and even the chapel`s organ pipes! Another room in this glorious maze of a building leads to a large workshop space which could be of huge value should the new owner decide to turn the chapel into a business; perhaps a ceramics cafe, theatre or gallery?
Outside you`ll unearth further treasures in the form of decking and seating areas on both the east and west sides of the property, established gardens and outbuildings. There`s also a hand-built granite pizza oven and a built-in fire pit; the perfect spot to enjoy the sun al fresco style.
A superb property, unique in every aspect, in a popular tourist destination; creating an excellent Old Colwyn investment opportunity, or for a family seeking to maximise the potential of their home.
