Stunning converted church goes on the market

House-hunters praying for divine inspiration can snap up a converted church – complete with its own stain glass window in the kitchen.

The former church has just gone on the market as a three bedroom detached house with a £600,000 price tag.

From the outside, the property is a beautiful, traditional church in the middle of the Worcestershire countryside near Malvern.

The inside of the 19th century property, called Chancel House, has been converted into a contemporary living space.

To honour its original purpose, the kitchen has a huge stain glass window and the doorways are arch-shaped.

A vaulted ceiling in the central atrium of the house also allows light to shine through to from the top of the five-storey property to the groundfloor.

The conversion has been recognised with a Civic Trust Award which is awarded to buildings that have “outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built
environment”.

The windows are part of the original building, as well as exposed stone walling and pitch pine beams which are all leftover from the 150-year-old architecture.

The front door is on the ground floor along with a guest bedroom with brick vaulted ceiling and en suite bathroom.

There is a reception hall on the first floor, along with a store room, cloakroom, utility room and large study/office/TV room.

The main living space, kitchen and dining area is on the second floor and is 3 storeys high, reaching up to a large skylight at the apex of the roof.

The master bedroom suite is on the third floor and has a balcony overlooking the main living space, with a further bedroom on the fourth floor.

The house is being sold by Knight Frank and the property has an asking price of £600,000.
