In 2000, this former St Bartholomew’s church in Little Packington, Warwick, was transformed into a glorious three-bedroom home that is now being offered for sale by estate agents Knight Frank for £725,000 (approx. $910,000).
The stone-clad exterior still looks like a church and also includes bell-turret, spire, and large covered porch with wooden frame carving. Interior of this Grade II listed property consists of limestone flooring, high vaulted ceiling, and stained window glasses – all these features would remind the potential homeowner of its true existence.
The main reception has been divided into two levels – one as a formal drawing room and another as seating space. Besides that, the home includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, and a study with windows facing the original churchyard, where you can still see a number of gravestones.
History of the church dates back to the 12th century, however, there is not much trace left of the original building as it has been renovated several times. Now the church converted into an elegant home is an epitome of contemporary style while retaining the essence of its original features.
If you are fond of living in historic buildings and also have a bank account flowing with cash, then you must not wait for too long to get in touch with Knight Frank to make an offer for this astonishing property.
