Property: Friday Street, Arlingham, Gloucester, GL2 7JP.

Location: Tucked away in Arlingham, around 13 miles south of Gloucester, this property is well-located for anyone looking to enjoy village life. Right by the River Severn, with green space all around, Arlingham has its own post office and two pubs – one of which enjoys prime real estate on the bank of the river and offers views across to Newnham-on-Severn.

Through the keyhole: With a history that dates back to the 1820s, Ebenezer Chapel is a Grade II listed former chapel that’s been tastefully converted to a high specification.

Stepping through the front door, there’s a spacious entrance hall with flagstone flooring, which leads on to the master bedroom and an open plan living room-come-kitchen diner space that’s made for entertaining.

The living space is bright and airy, retaining the chapel’s double height ceilings and original features – including the pulpit – while enjoying a contemporary finish. A wood-burning stove has been installed to keep things cosy, with plenty of space to accommodate a large lounge area and family dining table, too.

The kitchen is finished to a high standard, with a range of wall and base high gloss units; it also has integrated appliances, including an eye-level oven and microwave, induction hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer.

The property has three bedrooms in total, with two of the three doubles accessible via the living area. Both are spacious, and one benefits from its own dressing area with built-in oak wardrobes. The master bedroom, which is located at the front of the property off the entrance hall, has an ensuite shower room that’s equipped with a low-level WC, pedestal hand basin, corner shower cubicle and heated towel rail.

Meanwhile, the family bathroom has a bath with both a waterfall and a handheld shower overhead, with a hand basin that benefits from built-in storage, a low-level WC and a heated towel rail.

Outside, there’s space for several cars on the gravelled driveway; and a tranquil garden, located to the side of the house, with a luscious lawn and gravelled seating area. The garden can be accessed by an external door from the hallway off the living area, where there are also two storage cupboards.

Price: £525,000

SoGlos loves: Bursting with character, this property has a unique mezzanine floor above the living space, which would make a fantastic study area – or den for adventurous older children! Plus, the property is on the market chain-free, too.
