Have you ever had the dream or desire to live in a beautiful rural setting on a 3/4 acre private lot and design your own unique home within the walls of a Circa 1889 solid built church? Opportunity knocks!! Private and enchanting 3/4 acre parcel of land with meandering stone walkways through flowering perennial gardens featuring specialty bushes, fruit trees, benches, rock formations, rustic wood pergola archways and 2 Koi ponds with waterfall effects. Enjoy the sounds of nature in your own private back yard.
This property was once the height of the garden tours with a breathtaking wall of creeping hyacinth and stunning corkscrew hazel bushes. The building itself served as a Methodist Church then a United Church for 98 years. In 1988 the present owner bought and converted the lower level into a 1500 square foot open concept 2 bedroom living space. Plenty of room to entertain with a bright colourful eat-in kitchen, separate dining area and 2 lounge/living areas. 2 spacious bedrooms with good size window and closets, 4 piece bath with a claw tub, separate shower and in suite laundry complete this level.
The upstairs with 2000 square feet of space is open, bright, and features many original effects. Soaring cathedral ceilings, exposed detailed trusses, stained glass gothic windows, wooden floors, even the original finial has been preserved. Imagine a spacious loft master suite featuring the larger stained glass window overlooking a grand living space below.
This building is rooted in history and offers endless possibilities to suit your needs and dreams. A little about the community.
