1792 St. Nicholas Church, Northumberland UK

 

One couple bought an historical church in Kyloe, Northumberland UK, which was bult in 1792.  They invested a lot of money to maintain its exterior and interior, and if  it were not for them, who knows what would have happened to this beautiful church as it was in such poor condition. The couple however readapted the interior to give it a home atmosphere.  As an added bonus, it has my most desired feature – a Graveyard :) 

The Church was for sale back in 2008, for US$1million.

Historic Saint Jakobus Church – Netherlands

Originally built in 1870,  today this renovated church is a true modern architectural masterpiece.

The conversion has created an extremely modern living space in harmony with the original design, whilst  paying great attention to light, space and functionality.   The original nave (14 meters high) is impressive, but the design of the interior is cleverly balanced to ensure that those whom call the church “home” are not lost in its vastness.
