This converted chapel for sale has a Gothic front and is full of “striking” features. 

The former chapel, in Shaldon, dates back to the 1800s, having originally been the Ebenezer Congregational Chapel. 

In the 1920s, the chapel is thought to have been used by the local school as a hall, and closed in the 1970s, being bought by Teignbridge District Council. 

Throughout the property, which spans more than 2,500 square feet, there is “splendid” architectural styling, including high ceilings and character windows.
