WOULD you dare move into a former chapel - including an old graveyard?

This property in the heart of the Monmouthshire countryside may well fit the bill - and at least your new neighbours will be nice and quiet.

A former stone-built chapel and graveyard in the hamlet of Kingcoed, near Usk - a town frequently voted as one of the best places to live in the UK - could be yours.

Kingcoed Baptist Chapel is being sold by Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions who say the nearly 200-year-old building requires some updating.

New owners will also have to make arrangements for water, sewage and gas, as the only service to the property is electricity now that worship at the historic chapel has ended.

Gemma Vaughan, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: "The property is currently untouched and set out as for its former use as a chapel even with rows or pews.

"This wonderful, detached former chapel would need updating for future use perhaps as a chic rural home, subject to planning.

"The chapel is quietly located on a scenic ridge between relatively bustling Raglan and even more bustling Usk.

"The locality offers a range of amenities including brilliant independent shops, post office, Dr's surgery, chemist, pubs, garage, schools, vets  and restaurant.

"There is great access to the A449 and A40 which provides links to  the wider region including places such as Newport Cardiff and Bristol."

Listed with a guide price of £92,000-plus the former chapel is being offered for sale by Paul Fosh Auctions with online bidding starting at 12pm, on October 19.
