There are beautiful open-plan living spaces and a mezzanine floor.

It provided a spiritual hub for the community until the 1990s and was purchased by the current owners in 2007 who gave The Mission a new purpose in life!

It has attracted media attention over the years including a feature in The Guardian, which stated: “You can feel the open, warm tradition of this building as soon as you enter.”

The current owners have poured their hearts into the extensive refurbishment project to ensure that much of the original interior was retained including the floor-to-ceiling timber tongue and groove panelling, high pitched ceiling and stained glass windows.

Providing an open-plan lifestyle, a contemporary cube mezzanine construction positioned in the centre of the hall accommodates two double bedrooms suspended over the expansive living areas and ensures that the handsome architecture remains exposed.

The mezzanine also accommodates a luxuriously spacious bathroom beneath which boasts a large sunken bath recessed into what was the original baptismal font.

The gorgeous bathroom.

The generous open-plan living areas wrap around the mezzanine cube leading to the former vestry which now accommodates a beautifully restored 1950s English Rose-style kitchen which incorporates a dining area.

Beyond the kitchen is a former Sunday School annexe providing an additional two bedrooms comprising a double and single size, and there is an exquisite family shower room.

The open-plan lounge area is magnificent space with a high vaulted ceiling complete with a striking candle-style chandelier and a superb gothic arched chapel window with stained glass panels.

Warmed by a total of eight traditional column radiators, there is also a handsome Charnwood wood-burning stove mounted upon a slate tile hearth providing an ultra-cosy experience on those exceptionally cold winter days.

Externally, original tin cladding materials have been repurposed and fully insulated and there is double glazing within the original shaped frames.

The grounds provide off-road parking to the side of the building for up to four vehicles and there is a private decked terrace to the rear offering a delightful outdoor dining spot.

There is also a lawn area with a charming summerhouse.
