Couple turns a church of 1790s into a gorgeous home

The St. Nicholas Church was old and abandoned, sitting on a plot of land in Kyloe, Northumberland, a region in northern England.

From a long time, the church stayed in poor condition. It was built during the 1790s. The yard is loaded with gravestones. Thinking about these certainties, you’d never realize this memorable church keeps a gorgeous secret inside.

When one couple saw this they fell in love, they chose to get it and move in. They reestablished key components, like the vaulted ceilings and original stained glass windows, and they invested time and money to maintain the structure while readapting the inside to give it a cutting edge home environment.

The outside stays intact, except for skylights running the length of the roof. Unique recolored glass windows and repurposed church fixtures abound. Most of the original seating in the church was restored and put all through the home. What’s more, unused wood and building materials were designed into a sensational staircase leading from the main living space to an upper-level library.

While making a home out of an old church may sound insane to numerous individuals, this couple figured out how to spare the structure from deterioration and make something wonderful all the while.
