It is the windows that give away the former purpose of this unusual house in Lowsonford.
Tall and arched, they are a big clue as to the fact that this is a religious (property) conversion.
Now called Chapel Haven, this home in Narrow Lane, was once a Methodist church.
Built to accommodate a mass of worshippers, it means there was ample space to create three reception rooms and four bedrooms.
It begins with a reception hall with guest toilet.
At the centre of the home is a magnificent open plan breakfast kitchen.
This has a beamed ceiling, attractive fitted units around a central island, arched windows in the kitchen and an arched entrance way in the breakfast area, which also has double doors out to the garden.
On the other side of the kitchen there is formal dining room, again with beams to the ceiling, arched windows and an arched double doorway into a study.
At the end of the kitchen there are double doors that open into a large lounge with open brick fireplace and a conservatory at one end with doors to the garden.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms. The master has an en suite arrangement to one side with a basin and a shower cubicle in the bedroom and separate toilet. There is also plenty of storage.
The second bedroom has a particularly stunning collection of arched windows to one wall as well as access to an en suite shower room.
Bedrooms three and four are served by a house bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle.
The outside is as appealing and well-appointed as the main house.
A brick outbuilding contains both a gym/games room and a large garage/workshop. Another outbuilding acts as an external utility room.
Beautifully landscaped gardens surround the property. An extensive patio area is a real sun trap and offers uninterrupted countryside views to the front, back and side.
The village of Lowsonford is delightfully unspoilt with many interesting dwellings – apart from the transformed chapel – and a picturesque canalside inn. It has pleasant walks along towpaths as well as bridleways through the beautiful countryside surrounding it.
The village is also well placed for Henley in Arden approximately four miles away .
The larger communities of Knowle, Dorridge and Hockley Heath are close to hand as is Solihull town centre.
