A gothic church in Lincolnshire – East of England, has been converted into a £450,000 3-bedroom house.

The old Church House has been carefully restored to keep the original stained glass windows, church tower and even the altar. It’s backyard is a graveyard, but the new owners can rest assured no grieving family members will come dropping flowers, as it has been inactive for many decades.

I would not consider a converted church as an ideal home, but this is something else. Check out the pictures.
