Full Property Description

LOCATION


The property is located close to the centre of Abbots Bromley, off a short cul-de-sac known as Church Lane. This in turn leads to Bagot Street (B5014), which is the main route running through the village, and it is therefore well placed to benefit from local amenities. Abbots Bromley is a village in the parish of east Staffordshire district of Staffordshire which lies approximately 9.8 miles east of Stafford.


The property is located in the Abbotts Bromley Conservation Area.

 

DESCRIPTION


The property comprises a detached building which is thought to be constructed of brick, however the majority of the elevations have been rendered. There is a further single storey extension to the side and the rear which provides ancillary accommodation including a vestry and toilet.


The roof is assumed to be formed of a timber substructure with dual pitches covered in clay tile. The extension also has a pitched roof and is covered in clay tiles.


Fenestration appears to be of timber construction with single glazing. The windows to the original chapel are leaded and there is a stained glass window above the original location of the altar.


Internally the walls are plastered with various painted finishes. The main chapel floor is of oak herringbone. The ceiling of the main chapel is vaulted making an attractive feature.


We understand that the church is built somewhere between 1836 and 1841 in the garden of a parishioner.


To the left-hand side and rear of the property is a tarmacadam surfaced car park. This leads to an area at the rear which is surrounded by a brick wall thought to be the site of a former garage building.
