Ruined Georgian Church Turned into Home

Ruined Georgian Church Turned into Home

Located in Northumberland, England, this Georgian church were until recently a very neglected look. Sally Onions and Ian Bottomley decided to take matters into their own hands and completely turned this ruined building around. It took a lot of work, but at the present time the Georgian church is a five bedroom modern home. The purchasing cost for the construction was £92,000 and the overall spent sum was £300,000. We don’t know if it takes a religious couple to make such a conversion or just two very creative people. Nevertheless, the interiors look extremely original and the wood adds warmth. And check out what they did with the bathroom! Do you like this place, or do you consider it to be a bit out there?-via

    Wow, I always thought it would be creepy to live in a church. But this really feels like a home!

    Have always dreamed about living in a church. When I used to commute from Long Island into NYC, there was an abandoned church along the railway path, that I would look at every day and imagine doing this exact thing.

    Years later, I took the rail road and saw that someone in fact had renovated it, made me sooo happy…

    I cant believe they only paid 92,000 pounds. The stained glass alone is probably worth that. Curious how they heat it. Heated floor tile is a probably a good idea for a start.

    I love the idea of this – I have always wanted to get my hands on an authentic, old building like this…but the execution isn’t the best in my opinion…a bed in the dining room? A conversation piece over dinner maybe, but overall a waste of that gorgeous space!
    I would have shown off the character of the building by contrasting it with pure modernism.
    Disappointing furniture – especially the blue sofas…they look like they are from IKEA… :(

    That is over the top creepy… graves surrounding the building? Not my shtick!

    It’s so weird…Graveyard around the house and Jesus looking at you from the bathroom window. Sounds like creepy experience.

    Marvelous. Not sure about the bed adjoining the dining room, though.
