A Grade II listed church has been converted into a stunning family home and it is now on the market.

The charming 150-year-old church is on sale for around the same price a one-bedroom London flat… well, a pricey one.

The seven bedroom, five bathroom luxury living space has been put on the market for £1.2m.

In comparison, a one-bed, one-bath flat in Knightsbridge, in the nations capital, will set you back £1.1m.

St Lawrences Church in County Durham has recently undergone a complete modernisation inside, while still retaining the sandstone exterior, original church spire and stained glass windows.

The London property is set over 538 sq. ft. and is within walking distance of iconic shops such as Harrods. The unique church, which was built in 1871 by JP Pritchett, has been completely updated throughout – with a games room and an beautiful open-plan living area.

The character features inside the church are of course, already there including the tiled porch, tall windows and plenty of stained glass.

The unique home is spread across three floors and has been designed to make use of the natural light and high ceilings, creating a modern, open, airy feel and sits among sprawling gardens whilst the flat has a balcony view over Brompton Square.

Dean Abbott, Corbridge Branch Manager at Finest Properties says: ‘This is a wonderfully attractive property with a wealth of original features both inside and out.

‘The accommodation has been designed to take advantage of the space and light inherent in the property with open plan living accommodation and a good use of void spaces to draw light throughout.

‘The conversion is still ongoing and during this process potential buyers have an opportunity to put their own stamp on the finished property.’

According to Foxtons, the average price of a flat in London’s exclusive Knightsbridge is £3,226,667 whereas a house in Darlington will cost you on average £144,608.
