The former Kirkbean Church which was originally built in 1776, has been tastefully converted, combining many retained features with contemporary finishes to create a stunning home.

The five-bedroom detached house is currently on the market for offers in the region of £350,000 from Yopa.

Access to the property is via the entrance vestibule, which leads to the stunning open-plan reception area, comprising of a kitchen area, living area and dining area.

Many original features, including the pulpit, have been retained

The modern kitchen consists of a range of hardwood base and wall units with complimentary granite work surfaces, with gas stove, integrated washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is also a breakfast bar, to compliment the spacious dining area.

A feature of the living area is the beautiful stone fireplace, as well as the stairs which provide access to the open plan first floor reception area.

A hallway off the main reception area leads through to three bedrooms, one of which features an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom, while off the main building is a handy utility room.

Flexible living accommodation is a key feature throughout this property and a clear example of this is seen in the first floor reception area, which is currently used as a games room and office space, but could be utilised for a multitude of purposes.

The former pulpit and other features retained from the church have been used in this area to enhance the views over the ground floor reception area.

There are a further two bedrooms on this floor, the main of which again features an en-suite shower room.

Of the five bedrooms throughout the property, four of them also benefit from fitted wardrobes, providing ample storage space throughout the property.

The large church windows allow plenty of sunlight into the property, which benefits from biomass heating throughout.

Outside there is an area of off-street parking to the front of the property.
