Situated in a quiet location in a Wiltshire hamlet in the Cotswolds region of England stands a beautiful historic chapel that has been turned into a lovely home. In the past four years, new life was given to the 19th-century chapel and manse when it was turned into a serene house.
The restoration is the work of specialist builders and craftspeople with keen attention to detail and was finished by the founder of nune. The two buildings were linked together by a modern glass walkway during the renovation project.
The 2,360 sq feet living space features grand rooms with high ceilings, a serene color palette, and beautiful materials. With exceptional eco-credentials on the inside, the house is surrounded by a thoughtfully planted garden and wildflower meadow designed by Marian Boswall.
The chapel and adjacent manse were constructed around 1862 using coursed rubble stone, which consists of uneven stones laid in horizontal layers. They feature sleek slate roofs and gables with coping. Ashlar strips outline the façades of both structures.
The renovated chapel boasts a stunning double-height interior, adorned with the serene ‘Stone II’ shade from Paint + Paper Library.
Its majestic cathedral-style ceilings complement the arched, recessed sash windows, all of which are beautifully contrasted by rustic oak floorboards from Ark One.
The large room has been divided into clear areas: a cooking area, a dining area, and a sitting area. The bespoke kitchen is designed by Atelier Cabinet Makers with an Aga set to one side. The hand-crafted oak cabinetry is finished in ‘Lusi’ by Paint & Paper Library.
While you don’t have a view from the arched window, the room is flooded with beautiful natural light.
The glass walkway leads to the rest of the house.
One of the sitting rooms is turned into a lovely office space with shelves flanking the fireplace and a wooden desk in front of the window.
Two bedrooms on the first floor have far-reaching views over the field-upon-field of surrounding farmland.
The bathroom is a serene space painted in limewash paint by Bauwerk. Bejmat terracotta tiles, laid in a herringbone pattern, lie on the floor, and the walls are fitted with zellige tiles. The marble-top vanity was designed by nune and fabricated locally.
The courtyard between the two buildings is now used as a cozy outdoor dining area with string lights.
To the rear of the house is a natural swimming pool, designed and installed by Water Artisans.
The treehouse was built by Treehouse Life, making excellent use of the mature trees.
