Couple transforms 200-year-old church into a beautiful home

Ever fantasized about living in a church? For this couple, it is a reality.

Are you looking for a new home? Then you might prefer a place with enough space. Are you also handy? Then you can do some things yourself. That is what Sally Onions and Ian Bottomley did. In fact, the couple bought and turned a 200-year-old church into a beautiful home.

Refurbishing the church

If you want to redecorate a house quickly and easily, it is wise not to buy an ancient church. Yet Sally and Ian welcomed the challenge and bought a church in England a few years ago. It soon became clear that significant renovations had to be made, but the result is fantastic!

Eighteenth century church

Since 2002, Sally and Ian have been the proud owners of a picturesque church in Kyloe, England. But renovating the structure wasn’t a breeze. In fact, the two took six years to complete the repairs. The church was built in 1792, so the interior was very outdated. That didn’t bother Sally and Ian. The couple fell in love with the  look of the church, but wanted to give it a modern touch.
