The chapel is the showpiece of a complex which was built from the restored remains of historic Apley Castle in Shropshire.

The original castle dates back to medieval times and in 1996 the ruins were converted into eight unique homes.

The chapel is at the end of a no-through road in the former grounds of the old estate and situated next to the 56-acre Apley Woods.

Some unusual features have been carefully preserved during the house’s conversion to residential use, including, on the first-floor landing, the 14th century font, or piscina, set into the wall, leaded arched windows and stone arch doorways.

On the ground floor is a solid oak door leading into the entrance porch with cloakroom off. The kitchen/breakfast room is directly ahead, fully fitted with solid wood units, including display units, plate rack and double butler sink, as well as a utility area.

The dining room leads off the porch with a solid oak staircase to the first floor and leaded window.

A few steps lead up to the impressive drawing room with two stone mullioned windows overlooking the garden, and fireplace fitted with a gas stove.

 

Upstairs the master bedroom is dual aspect with a feature arched window, and further landing area, fitted with bookshelves, with stairs up to two further double bedrooms; one fitted as a library and study and the other with wardrobes, and a family bathroom.

Outside a five-bar gate leads to the large gravelled parking area with space for several vehicles, and a wrought iron gate through to the landscaped garden, which is principally laid to lawn with shaped flower and shrub beds, with a flagstone terrace and all enclosed with mature hedging and trees. There is also a cedar summerhouse, as well as brick and timber storage sheds.

Wellington provides local facilities and rail services to Wolverhampton and Birmingham. Telford is also nearby and the M54 is a short distance away, giving easy access to Shrewsbury, Birmingham and Midland business centres.
