Vendor's Insight - Built in 1893, this beautiful former chapel occupies a superb position within the pretty Staffordshire village of Rolleston on Dove. It is a prominent building within the community and since being closed due to a dwindling congregation it has been transformed into a quite exceptional home that effortlessly blends period character with stylish modern design. “The chapel unfortunately had to close its doors some time ago and was sitting empty for a number or years before we decided to take it on,” says the developer. “I’ve lived in the area for quite some time so I could appreciate how good the location was, and that combined with the sheer size and beauty of the building itself provided the ideal development opportunity.”
“We wanted to breathe new life into this lovely old building and enable it to be used and enjoyed for many years to come, so we enlisted the help of an architect who came up with a stunning design. He’s incorporated elements such as a very striking glass and brushed steel floating staircase and a high-spec modern kitchen, complete with top-of-the range appliances, and these beautifully complement the bold architectural features of the chapel, creating a very unique but at the same time incredibly warm and welcoming home. And during the refurbishment we were also able to incorporate SMART technology, which will enhance the feeling of comfort.”
“The layout centres around a huge double-height, open-plan kitchen, dining and living space that’s open right up to the vaulted ceiling, so it’s a very dramatic space, and we’ve created a mezzanine seating area above the front door, which is mirrored on the other side by an internal balcony that flows out from the huge master suite. The other four bedrooms are located on the ground floor, as is the study, so there’s space for coming together as a family, but equally rooms to disappear to for a bit of peace and quiet. It’s a layout that will work perfectly for busy family life.”
“The property also benefits from having a generous amount of outside space,” continues the developer. “To the front is ample parking for up to six cars as well as a decked seating area, and to the back there is a patio area and then the rest is laid to lawn. We’ve deliberately left it as a bit of a blank canvas so that the new owners can come in and really put their stamp on it.”
Outside - The home is approached through an extensive driveway with electric gates providing off road parking for approximately six cars. The front of the property also has a wooden decked area, a large paved area and a small lawn area providing additional outdoor space. The property also benefits from a secure and landscaped rear garden with vehicular access to Station Road. For sale with no upward chain.

Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient.
