Chapel’s mass appeal to singing priests
ON THE MARKET
Address: The Chantry, Church Street, Hadlow, near Tonbridge Price: £475,000 to £500,000 Agent: Period Homes by Simon Miller A chantry chapel was built for a priest to sing mass, so this 15th century one would certainly have heard a tune or two.
The Chantry, now a two-bedroom home, is tucked up close to Hadlow’s ancient St Mary’s Church and is for sale with Period Homes by Simon Miller.
The Grade II listed property has recently been improved and has good quality fixtures and fittings that fit well with the period character.
On the ground floor is a long kitchen/ breakfast room opening to the back garden. There are painted units with stainless steel cupped handles and a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer taps inset into black quartz work surface. The kitchen has an integrated dishwasher.
Two equally-sized reception rooms are at the front of the house, one of them a sitting room with a fireplace and the other a dining room with stairs leading off.
Both the bedrooms are on the first floor, with an en suite and a family bathroom.
A useful mezzanine study is built into the roof.
The back garden has a paved patio and steps to a lawn area edged by shrubs and raised borders. A great feature is a corner summer house with paved seating area outside.
