The Property 

Hengapel is a beautifully presented detached former Calvinistic Methodist Chapel which has been converted and extended into a stunning character property. The original Chapel was built in 1866 and was converted into a house in the 1980s by local builder, since then the property has only been sold once to the current owners and they have continued to make improvements to both the layout and finish. Throughout the property the high standard of decoration, fixtures and fittings really showcase the character features that remain within the house, such as the Chapel name plaque which is embedded into the original porch wall.

Internally there are five bedrooms in total, two of which are doubles, with three single rooms, with a beautifully presented white family bathroom suite and a recently upgraded en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. On the ground floor there are two reception rooms, the main is the lounge which offers a cosy feel with a wood burning stove set within a stone fireplace. The second reception room acts as both a formal dining area and a sitting room, with quaint stone wall features in place as shelving. The kitchen breakfast room has again been upgraded by the current owners with farmhouse style units fitted, these together with the range cooker and slate tiled floor all add the character feel of the house. Fitted within the kitchen is an Indesit Fridge, Dishwasher and electric floor heater, which can be included in the sale. You can sit at the breakfast table and enjoy looking through a newly fitted double glazed external door over the garden and fields at the rear whilst enjoying that first coffee of the day! To the side of the kitchen is useful utility room and ground floor cloakroom, which is accessed via a side solid oak entrance door, exactly what every good family home needs!

The house has been completely refurbished and changed since 2014 when the current owners purchased it, the creation of a utility room and downstairs cloakroom, two new bathrooms and a new fitted kitchen, together with new ground floor double glazed windows, a new wood burning stove and completely redecorated meaning you can walk straight in and enjoy living in this this stunning house! 

The present owners have researched the history of the chapel and have pictures from the National Library of the Chapel from when it was in use which are great to see and can remain if wanted with the house.

Don’t be slow booking a viewing, this will be quick to sell!


Externally the property is accessed via a vehicular gate which opens off the council highway and leads via the private driveway to the house, garage and in turn provides ample parking. The gardens are to the side and rear of the house and are mainly lawn with the former stone walled boundary in place. There is a small graveled seating area tucked in the corner of the garden under two trees, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the views over the open field behind. Hurry along and you'll be able to watch the lambs playing!
