    I would love to live in a former church! This one is quite nice, however I want to see the tower and is that a balcony at the top of the steeple? This place could be quite grand I would move the platform holding the dining table more on center as the new kitchen makes it look off center and drop some longer grander chandeliers to fill all that high ceiling space. Bathroom? As I am Italian (1/2) I collect a lot of Church stuff it would all fit in so nicely!

    • Hi. I am the owner and builder of this beautiful church. I’m sad to sell it but it’s possibly going to be sold. There is much Tiffany lighting for your Italian appetite! The tower and bell are beautiful and yes there are balconies off the tower that need to be replaced ( not a difficult job) the table sits on the original alter that I reconstructed and I would not want to alter the alter😂😂😂

    This is more a “people living in a church” than an actual conversion, which is actually nice as it leaves a clean slate for the next person. I have never seen a balcony on a steeple window like that before!

  3. I’d love to live in an older church, oh the possibilities…this church looks to be in really good condition & oh how I love the curved wood ceiling!

  4. The balcony on the steeple window is for smoking. 😉

    It is a very sympathetic conversion, more so than most. Might the iron structure on the steeple be a heretic’s cage? https://www.thevintagenews.com/2018/10/29/cages-on-the-st-lamberti-church/
    In case a heretic should ever have shown up in Sycamore, Ohio, Mt. Zion UB Church would have been ready!

      Agghhhh! That was a very scary piece of history all around. One of those things you should know but wish you didn’t. When I wake up in the middle of the night with nightmares of those cages, I’m calling you up. Seriously, thanks for posting it – we should know about stuff like this. Speaking of disturbing – that thing on the steeple looks like a big air conditioner unit. Talk about heresy…..

      I don’t think I needed to see that.
