Converted Chapel for Sale: Earl Soham, Suffolk

14 Dec
December 14, 2012


This converted chapel for sale (yes, I know, another one) is a former 19th-century chapel that was recently completed by Andrew Hughes Architects and transformed into a five-bedroom home. The house can be found bordering water meadows in one of Suffolk’s most appealing villages, Earl Soham.

Hughes was been careful to conserve many of the original features of the building – such as the original ceiling scissor beams – while opening up the spaces of the former chapel. A large, light open-plan living / kitchen / dining room occupies the entire first floor and leads out onto a terrace, which offers views across the surrounding countryside.

Further accommodation includes, on the ground floor, five bedrooms (two with en-suite bathrooms) and a second reception room. There is also a utility room, a family bathroom and a small shower room. The former Sunday School building sits alongside the main house and provides an extra versatile space that has the potential to be used as a further guest bedroom, a games room or office / studio. The good-sized garden is largely lawn bordered by beds and hedgerows with an area of orchard at the far end.

The house is within walking distance of the village green at the centre of Earl Soham, a thriving and sought-after Suffolk village. It benefits from a highly regarded pub (that brews its own beer), an award-winning butcher, a tennis club and an excellent primary school.

Ipswich is 14 miles to the south and provides regular rail services to London Liverpool Street, taking just over one hour.


You’ll be pleased to know that it’s slighty cheaper than the chapel I featured earlier this month and it’s freehold!

I did say slightly, it’s on for £695,000 and as usual, further details/pictures can be found here.

Property Inspiration: Bogbain Mill in Lochussie, Dingwall

19 Nov
November 19, 2012

Bogbain Mill was a project that incorporates the ruins of a former mill. Combining the old walls with the new constructions and insertions in the fabric, it is intended to clearly articulate the modern additions set against the solid stone walls of the mill. The internal courtyard has become the focus for the house, and all internal rooms on the ground floor have a direct relationship into this enjoyable south-facing garden overlooking a burn. A new bedroom tower allows views over the wider surrounding landscape.

The original stone mill was narrow, primarily L-shaped in plan, parallel to the road and then running back perpendicular behind. At the back, the land drops away down to a burn that would have powered the original granite waterwheel from a millpond, both now lost. The client also managed to acquire a small wood beyond the burn with an outlook that could securely become part of the brief. The architect has responded thoughtfully by designing a number of simple timber pavilions and additions to the ‘found’ walls, threaded through cross-axes and arranged in unfolding layers of inhabitation over the ruins to create a series of inside and outside courtyard spaces.

location: Lochussie, Dingwall
project type: private house
client: private
size: 350m2
completion: 2011
team: Alan Dickson, Nick Thomson, Marnie Macdonald, Ian Grant
