Loft bath also features a stained glass window above the claw footed tub. Spiral staircase allows for access to another loft space @ the opposite end. A little detached cottage on th...e property for storage and /or work space. Strategically located between Bethlehem & Twin Mt, it's a short ride to all downtown Bethlehem has to offer (restaurants, shops, theater) and mere minutes to either Franconia or Crawford Notch (Cannon or Bretton Woods). Sale is subject to right of first refusal.

    Omg I love this! What a neat place! I love how big and open it is. So much charm!

    Very cool! I’m curious about the house shaped frame in the living room. I’m guessing it must have lighting on it or something. I also like the very open floor plan.

      I think they are trying to define a smaller space within a large space. I like the idea but i’m not sold on the execution.

      I wonder if it had curtains hung on it. It looks for all the world like the frame for the canvas tent my artist friend takes to art festivals. It also could be one of the ‘gazebo” contraptions sold for outdoor use. My immediate concern was that they damaged the beautiful floor installing that… unless those are rubber feet.

    Beautiful windows that must be stunning as light pours into the building. Must be tough to heat in the N.H. winters with the high ceiling but a lovely conversion inside and out. And the door knocker is a hoot.

    Most successful church conversions I’ve seen extend the second floor platforms (above the altar and back by the choir balcony) into lofts that give useable upstairs space for bedrooms and such, while keeping the living and entertaining down on the main floor. This one retains its original configuration.

    I would change the front doors. The ones are not impressive as the building deserves. Small deck in back would be nice, maybe a bit bigger. Nice old building.

    It wouldn’t take much to convert this one right back to a church again. I’d feel very uncomfortable living in a former church. I’d expect the former pastor and congregation to show up any minute.
