From the Zillow listing:


The unique architecture of this 19th century Victorian Gothic style church blends an old-world style with new-world conveniences that will have you in awe. The beautifully renovated kitchen sits under the original vaulted arches while modern amenities feature abundant cabinet space, granite countertops and a center island all beneath the 20-ft. ceiling. The large kitchen windows allow the natural sunlight to brighten the interior while giving you a view to the backyard. The charming three-season porch beckons you to sit with your morning coffee and observe the birds and the bunnies in the flower gardens. The newly built fire pit is the perfect place to host friends for a summer gathering of storytelling and marshmallow roasting. You can have your primary bedroom on the first floor or in one of the three on the 2nd floor. The newer second floor bathroom offers a large tile shower and a soaking tub. Additionally there is a bonus room at the front entry of house presently used as an exercise room. But there’s more! The front portion of the church, presently used as a storage area, is waiting to be finished by you. Think of the possibilities…an apartment, guest quarters, recreation room, music studio, art gallery, woodshop or home-based business. (town permits may be needed). The newly fenced in yard (2023) features raspberry and blueberry bushes, fruit trees and grapevines. New heating system & garage door (2021) New fire pit (2022) Close to hiking/biking/VAST trails
