Built in 1862, this former Wesleyan chapel has been superbly redesigned to create a lovely family home retaining a host of period features and unobtrusive echoes of its ecclesiastical past.

The extensive grounds abut rising open countryside with a rarely used right of way.
Peterchurch nestled in the famed Golden Valley, is a bustling village with its own Police and Fire Stations and a thriving community hub at the Village Hall offering Monday coffee mornings and extensive book swap library. St. Peters Church provides a County Library in the clock tower and ‘The Hub’ Cafe Tuesday to Friday. The chapel enjoys an ideal location towards the edge of the village only a short stroll from its many amenities including; convenience store with post office, pub and soon-to-be-opened Italian restaurant. The Ofsted ‘Good’ rated Primary School feeds into the village’s “Outstanding” Fairfield Secondary School. Peterchurch lies an all but equidistant 10 miles from both Hereford City and the book town of Hay-On-Wye renown for its International Literary Festival.
Porch – Passing between stone pillars with metal gate leads across the front garden and up to the timber Porch with stained glass side windows that provided the original entry into the chapel and retains double wooden doors opening into the Sitting Room.
Entrance Hall – The half-glazed Front Door sympathetically featuring Gothic arch detailing echoed by the windows throughout, opens into the Entrance Hall with lovely square parquet flooring extending into the Sitting Room. Off the Hall lies the Cloakroom, fitted with high shelves and offering copious storage.
Sitting Room – The grandly spacious Sitting Room enjoys triple aspect and exudes character with its exposed stone walls, tongue and groove panelling and most particularly in its feature fireplace. The statuesque stone fireplace, home to a wood burner, retains delightful detailing from its decorative twining stone lintel to the twin stone finials flanking the hearth. The room offers more than ample space for a large Dining Table at which to gather family and friends.
Study – Sharing half of the original stained glass with the Cloakroom next door, the Study offers a malleable space ideal for a Home Office or space for quiet retreat.
Kitchen/Breakfast Room – The classic country Kitchen with riven flagstone flooring is fully fitted with Shaker units warmed by solid wood countertops and features a central island offering ample storage with cupboards and deep pan drawers flanked by pull-out bottle and spice racks.

The Breakfast Room provides ample space for seating with perhaps a lounging sofa beside a family dining table set before French Doors opening out onto a paved patio and the wider private rear gardens.
Laundry Room – Fitted with units and countertops to match the Kitchen, it offers space for both washer and dryer beside the stainless steel sink with integral drainer. The room provides ample space for copious storage while the large fitted Airing Cupboard is home to the hot water tank surrounded by fitted shelving.

Attached Garage & Boiler Room – Assessed directly from the Hall the expansive Garage offers a great Workshop, provides ample storage and is home to the grid-feeding solar panel manifold. The size and discreet rear position of the Garage means it holds exciting potential for conversion without compromise to the charm of the chapel’s façade. The attached Boiler Room is home to the Okofen wood pellet boiler providing sustainable heating.
The Driveway offers parking for numerous vehicles while the front garden laid to lawn has a statement fir tree begging for Christmas light illumination. The private rear gardens are expansive with initially a paved patio giving way to a small lawn bounded with flower borders before a brick ‘bridge’ opens to the wider lawn interspersed with mature trees. The small mature orchard of apples, alongside the large vegetable plot with greenhouse and compost bins ensures productive harvests. Meanwhile the Summerhouse offers a lovely retreat beside a small copse of acer, copper beech and silver birch under-planted with snake head fritillary and wild garlic. The back boundary of the garden bordering the rise of open fields holds the right of way stile while to the far side runs the drainage channel, working in tandem with French drains on the hillside to harmlessly divert excess rainfall from the neighbours.
