Historical Waterford! Very unique opportunity. Constructed in 1869 this historical church could become your next home! Includes 4 lots inlcuding waterfront on the mill pond of Van Norman Lake. 5553 Sq Ft above ground which includes the Chapel with an additional 2162 Sq Ft of cut stone basement. Restrictions exist as to changing exterior appearance but interior is open to the imagination. Also included is the Ice House, not as old as the church but a historical building itself. Great for storage or possible garage. Please watch the Visual Tour I've produced. I think it conveys the property quite accurately. Property has been recently stake surveyed. * Please note, there is no full bathroom and there is no bedroom, there are two lavatories. Important to review all documents as well as disclosures. This property exists in a flood plain. All offers must be submitted on purchase agreement provided by Waterford Township legal counsel and attached with disclosures.

    Gorgeous, everything to become a prize. The pews are so attractive, it’s a shame it can’t stay a church. It is in a beautiful location & the ice house adds to historic atmosphere.

    This is one church that I think could very successfully be converted to residential use. Often stained glass windows present a design problem; they obstruct outside views, darken the interior and are usually just too ‘churchy’ for a home. The back portion looks like a much later addition and would look better removed. I guess the only thing that would concern me is the flood plain location.

    A lovely space! Could pray all day…Thinking it could be a great business location. Making it a residence would take some imagination & we would need to roll up our sleeves…

    Is it an optical illusion, or is the steeple canted backward? Seems to me, if it is, there is some serious restructure repair. Flood plain is almost always a downer. lovely building otherwise.
