Through the village of Downhead, up the lane, and there it is: a charming old chapel built in 1863. There’s gravel at the front, seating space to the side – almost a walled garden feel; with just a couple of neighbours, you’re nicely private. Walk through the dreamy green door and lofty, airy living space opens up before you, with stripped floors and contemporary pieces, half-shutters diffusing light from arched chapel windows, and black and white portraits on pristine white walls: Lord Bath in one corner, Damien Hirst in another, an intriguing private collection. A grand piano sits to the left of the space, a green chaise longue flanks a wall and there’s a glass bottle chandelier designed by Kevin McCloud: you’re in good company. The kitchen is ready for budding chefs, the sleek bathroom is warm underfoot, and the bedroom is up on the mezzanine. Close by is Frome, historic market town popular with London escapees, while Longleat trumpets the grandest example of Elizabethan architecture in Britain – plus lions. Come home to sumptuous bubbles to soak in, silk robes to pad about in, and space, comfort and peace.
