Gislingham, Suffolk


This charming former chapel has been converted into a striking, comtemporary four bedroom family home. It features a dramatic, double height living space that previously functioned as the main chapel. This space is finished with an oak parquet floor and a large wood burning stove. The original chapel choir gallery has been retained and restored and now houses a light filled study area.


The original 19th century chapel is sandwiched and complimented by two black timber-clad additions that echo the shape of the chapel yet provide a striking
contrast to the red brick of the original building. One houses the kitchen with handmade kitchen units and a Carrara marble worktop. The other double height addition accommodates the four bedrooms and bathrooms.

Built to the highest standards, the property retains many original features complimented by stunning contemporary design.

The property is heated by an Air Source Heat Pump and includes underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.
