Wesleyn Chapel is an unusual home near an environmentally important conservation area and with stunning open views of the surrounding countryside.

The Grade II-listed converted chapel, built in 1843, blends original features such as chapel windows, exposed timber beams, vaulted ceilings and an inglenook fireplace with modern additions, resulting in a picturesque and comfortable home.

This charming property occupies a picturesque location in the coastal village of Mawbray, within the Silloth Dunes and Mawbray Bank SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

The whitewashed dwelling has a porch with windows to either side and internal doors to a large dining room with wooden floor and stove in an inglenook.

The flooring flows through open access to the sitting room which also has a feature fireplace.

These reception areas combine to form a striking heart of the home with the large chapel windows flooding the warm and welcoming space with natural light.

A door links the dining room and the kitchen which is light and bright and boasts a range of white fitted cabinets with complementary work surfaces and a dual-fuel range cooker.

Upstairs there are three lovely double bedrooms, one lit by skylights, and a family bathroom with a freestanding roll-top bath, wooden floor, exposed beam and rooflight.

Externally, Wesleyn Chapel sits in a plot bordered by a stone wall and has a sandstone path leading to the entrance vestibule. There is designated parking to the front.

The large garden is mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked flower beds and a shillied area. The stone walling is complemented by wooden fencing to the boundary.
