About Chapel House
In Yorkshire we have a saying that when you can see Emley Moor Mast you are nearly home, this couldn’t be any truer than with Chapel House as it sits just across the road from the iconic Grade II listed structure. Naturally in such an elevated position the property enjoys far reaching views to the rear which has been accentuated by the contemporary extensions at the rear of the property.

The property is originally believed to date back to 1908 when it was built as a Methodist Chapel, then converted into 2 houses circa 1982. It is of traditional stone built construction under a slate roof. Our client has owned the property since 2001 and has carried out numerous improvements since then including the impressive extensions at the rear which feature full height glazing and charred Siberian larch cladding.

It has a porch to the front elevation but most visitors will enter through the glazed kitchen door at the rear of the building. The kitchen is fitted with high quality modern units and features full height glazing enjoying the views. It sits next to the large garden room which again features tall picture windows with a glazed sliding door onto the terraced seating area. This flexible room is currently used as a living and dining space.

Glazed double doors lead into the large lounge which is currently set up with a large seating area around the impressive fireplace and a small snug area for watching TV. A home office area is sectioned off in the corner of this space and this also has a glazed door into the garden room. Also on this floor you will find the main entrance hall with a staircase to the first floor, downstairs wc and bedroom 4 which could be a good guest room if required but is currently used as study.

Beneath the house is a cellar area, used for storage and as a utility room – this is accessed via a door and stairs from the lounge.

The first floor hosts 3 double bedrooms which all feature high angled ceilings with the roof timbers and timber cladding featured on display. All 3 rooms have fitted wardrobes and 2 enjoy wonderful views to the rear. The bedrooms are served by the large house bathroom which features a walk in shower and free standing bath.

The house is served by an LPG gas central heating system with the storage tank being located within a compound in the rear garden. The rooms in the extension are heated by modern electric heaters. It is connected to mains water, gas and electricity.

Externally there is a small lawned garden at the front of the house and a larger enclosed garden at the rear. This features a graveled driveway providing generous parking, extensive lawned area, wooden garden room and a large stone paved terraced seating area from which to enjoy the views.

It is located just over a mile from the centre of village of Emley which has a village shop, popular local pub, church, school, football and cricket clubs. There is also a the Thorncliffe Farm Shop located midway between the two. Further local amenities can be enjoyed in Kirkburton and Skelmanthorpe whilst it offers excellent access to Sheffield, Wakefield, Leeds and Barnsley courtesy of the M1 motorway.
