Guide £495,000


A REMARKABLE PERIOD HOME NESTLED ON A PICTURESQUE VILLAGE GREEN WITH EXTENSIVE VIEWS & OFF-ROAD PARKING

This remarkable home occupies an enviable central position with far-reaching views across the green in Hartest: one of West Suffolk's most favoured villages. English quintessence in its absolute form with an eclectic row of brightly coloured chocolate box homes together with distinctive red phone booth and post box. Chapel Cottage, a former manse, has been lovingly restored by Fred Grzyb, who is an Emmy award-winning costumier, having worked for the New York City Opera and the New York City Ballet, and Jo Ellen Grzyb, a keen gardener who is an entrepreneur and writer. Their highly skilled and sensitive restoration has highlighted the best of the original features which include a beautiful open-plan vaulted principal living room and adjoining kitchen, awash with south-facing sunlight from roof lights and a newly constructed garden room. Two further enchanting living spaces one with a substantial inglenook fireplace are in fantastically original condition and maintain a wealth of period timber detailing crafted from oak. Much of the accommodation is laterally arranged, showcasing high ceilings with a ground floor guest suite shower room in addition to a separate cloakroom with utility. Two further bedrooms on the first floor the large Master includes a walk-in wardrobe are served by a sumptuous family bathroom. The scale, light and ambience within are modestly masked from the outside. So aptly put by the homeowners: Chapel Cottage is the home that enchants and embraces you .

A further asset is the garden with large private courtyard area, ideal for al fresco dining, centred around a raised kitchen bed with masterfully designed 'His' & 'Hers' studios. Double gates allow for off-road parking. An attractive skyline of mature trees and slanted period rooftops are wedded by the sound of a babbling brook beyond.
