Vendor's thoughts: "We fell in love with The Chapel when we drove past it 25 years ago. We renovated it to suit our growing family, keeping as many of the original features as we could. We loved its individuality as a family home and our friends from London always felt it a very special place to visit. The most recent renovation has not only kept The Chapel's unique character but added to its charm and comfort as an easy place to both live and entertain friends."
