A one-of-a-kind home has hit the Newcastle property market after a 19th-century church has been renovated, and the result will leave you astonished.
The five-bedroom house in Walbottle, towards the West of Newcastle, was listed on Rightmove earlier this month with an asking price of £1.5 million.
The large house was previously a church and is fresh from a major renovation.
The original church was built circa 1860 and many of its trademark features have been kept to create a unique investment.
Stained-glass windows, exposed beams and wood-burning fires are just a few of the endearing aspects of the 4,800 square foot property.
The entrance to the house is through the pointed doors on the church's original facade, concealing the surprise that lays inside.
A large corridor runs through the centre of the property, giving access to all principal rooms and showcasing an impressive split wind staircase.
At the top of the stairs remains a part of the church - a green mural with the original religious inscription in place.
The house's kitchen is modern and slick, so much so you forgot the building was originally a church.
In other spaces, the property's first identity is felt.
A home office has an arched window, as do many of the bedrooms, letting in plenty of natural light.
The large master bedroom boasts a regal atmosphere with its tall arched ceilings and a stained-glass window.
That room also comes with an ensuite featuring a waterfall shower with body jets, contrasting the old with the new.
There's also a large loft space which estate agents say could create an extra four bedrooms if desired.
To top it all off, there's ample outside space and parking too.
The former church is found to the west of the Newcastle City Centre, in the more rural area of Walbottle.
It's a short walk from Newburn and the River Tyne with easy public transport, or a 15-minute drive, to the city centre.
