It might not be typical, but it looks like living in a church could become a reality.

A small church located in Kinmount, Ontario, is currently on the market for $299,000 and has been completely transformed into a cute and rustic home.

It was once known as the Historic Kinmount Church and is located near restaurants, grocery stores, and recreational trails.

While the exact date of when the church was built is unknown, it definitely has some history.

“The foundation is pretty old and judging by the style we’re looking at probably 70 to 80 years old. It could be much older, like 100 years, but there’s no markings, so we can’t know for sure,” Chris Smolarz, sales representative for the Trillium Team of Royal LePage, told Daily Hive.

According to Smolarz, the church was turned into a home 17 years ago by the current home owners and had 26 pews at the time.

The home is also a rare find. He said two other churches were sold over the last few years, but neither was as old as this Kinmount property.

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home offers a nice respite from the city life during the pandemic, giving you more outdoor space to roam about.

When entering the home, it already feels like a cottage with its natural wood features.

The cathedral ceilings allow for an open feel. The home also has upgraded windows, hardwood floors, and new drywall with fresh paint.

There is also the beautiful added feature of a wood stove in the living and dining room space.

Smolarz added that the home is perfect for a couple or single-person, as the home basically acts as an apartment with a loft space.

There is also a large master bedroom with a walkout to a deck and a second loft bedroom. It just needs a slight refreshing, but it has the potential to be a real bedroom retreat.

“The home does have a conditional offer,” Smolarz said. “While we can still show it to people and accept other offers, it’s likely going to be sold.”

The property has been on the market for just over a month.
