Unique Converted Church for Sale: Original Features Intact, Including Organ, Bell, and Stained-Glass Windows

Experience the tranquility of a converted Methodist church that retains its original charm, from intricate stained-glass windows portraying biblical scenes to a fully functional organ and bell.

This remarkable three-bedroom home spans 6,000 sq ft across two floors, a testament to the loving restoration it has undergone. The house offers a spacious kitchen, a grand fireplace, and a sunroom that once served as the sanctuary.

Originally built in 1858, the Episcopalian church houses the very bell that once summoned the faithful to worship, a historical artifact added in 1902.

Stepping inside, visitors are welcomed by the iconic purple carpet that gracefully ascends the stairs.

The main chapel, which still boasts the original organ, serves as an expansive living room. It features several floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the space in natural light and an exquisite stained glass window depicting Jesus Christ.

The residence comprises one and a half bathrooms, adorned with stone accents, elegant pillared furniture, and a luxurious spa bathtub.

Beyond its unique features, the church-turned-home offers practical amenities like a pantry, an office, a laundry room, and wired stereo speakers in every room. Ample storage space is also available.

Nestled in Mendota, Illinois, the property enjoys proximity to local attractions including the golf club, Lake Mendota, and Starved Rock State Park.

Currently on the market for £237,000 ($299,000), this distinctive church conversion offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history while enjoying modern comforts.
