Stunning former chapel in the Snowdonia foothills put up for sale

A stunningly converted former chapel in the foothills of Snowdonia has been put up for sale offering two homes.


The seven-bedroom Capel Jerusalem in Abergynolwyn, near Tywyn, Gwynedd, is two properties – the Chapel and the Vestry - and has had significant renovations to create the stunning homes.


“This imaginative conversion of a beautiful chapel offers the purchaser exceptional flexibility; use one as a home or holiday home, with the other as a holiday let, or rent both properties as five-star holiday lets, with a significant income,” said Michael Williams, a Partner at Morris Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd who are selling the property on behalf of the owners.


“The two houses are currently independent, but the installation of a connecting door would provide a further opportunity for a B&B or large holiday home, sleeping up to 18 people.”


Two properties that could be easily made into one

At the front of the property is Capel Jerusalem which has four ground floor bedrooms and an impressive open plan living/kitchen/dining space on the first floor.


In Jerusalem Vestry, accommodation is over three floors, with an open plan living/kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, two bedrooms on the first floor and a guest suite on the second floor.


The properties include beautiful original features, an infra-red sauna and outdoor barbecue area. The chapel has been put on the market for £685,000.


They have previously been let as a successful holiday business.



Stunning Snowdonia National Park scenery

As well as access to the Snowdonia National Park, the property is close to the coastal towns of Tywyn and Aberdyfi, as well as the Talyllyn lake.


Railway stations on the Cambrian Railway into the Midlands and Birmingham are nearby at Tywyn and Machynlleth.


“This is an amazing property set in a beautiful part of Wales. Whether a home or as a tourism business it is a must-see property,” added Mr Williams.
