Home inside a former chapel built in 1855 goes on sale for £500,000

This chapel might not look like much from the outside.

But inside is a rather lovely home, pairing original features with modern fittings.

The two-bedroom house in Devon is a former chapel built in 1855 and turned into a home in 2006.

It’s been beautifully converted and is now up for sale through Bond Oxborough Phillips – Ilfracombe via OnTheMarket, with an asking price of £500,000.

Let’s go through this rather unique property, from the outside in.

So, location-wise, the house is in Ilfracombe, a seaside resort that’s rich with history.

It’s a short walk from a load of attractions, including Damien Hirst’s famous Verity statue, on the harbour, and Tunnels Beaches; a coastal wedding venue that you access through a tunnel in the cliff and has its own private beach.

The house itself sits in about a third of an acre of gardens, and is Grade-II listed.

From the outside, it looks just like it used to when it worked as a chapel, with stained glass windows, original stone, and slate.


But go inside and you’ll see what a great job has been done at turning the property into a home.

There’s an open plan reception area and kitchen, with a beech spiral staircase leading to the first floor.

Up on the first floor are two large bedrooms and one bathroom, with a second bathroom back down on the ground floor.

The original stained glass windows are especially lovely.



Vikki Bennett, spokesperson for OnTheMarket, said: ‘This is a really unique property. It’s great to see so many of the original features incorporated into the renovation.

‘The stained glass windows are a stand-out feature and for the right person, this will make an interesting and stunning home.’

Ben Heath, Senior Negotiator at Bond Oxborough Phillips, Ilfracombe, added: ‘It’s rare to come across a property such as this but I’m sure it will be a unique and treasured home for its next owner.’
