One might assume that a building this size, converted into a residence, would have a gazillion sprawling bedrooms but that’s not the case here. In this renovated church home, there are just four bedrooms – one on the main floor and three upstairs, all with en suite bathrooms. The 6,167-square-foot residence now also includes a private patio with a waterfall and a gym.

From the street, the building still looks unassuming and, well, church-like. The original red brick is in good condition and wasn’t dramatically altered during the reno. Although the interior can no longer be mistaken for a house of worship, some of the architectural elements of the church were kept intact, which is a cool thing to do when you turn a church into a home. The pillars of the full-height sanctuary remain in the space that is now the main living area, with plentiful lounge space, a piano, an open kitchen and an enormous dine-in island.

The open floor plan of the common areas emphasizes the building’s intended purpose, with its original floor-to-ceiling arched windows surrounding the very modern furnishings. Elsewhere, the church’s original colorful stained glass windows now overlook a spiral stairway leading to the mezzanine.

Located in the Kenmont Gardens neighborhood of London’s prestiguous Kensington area, the home is situated near a variety of amenities, including restaurants, shops, and bars. And it’s currently for sale for £10 million, which is just over $15.5 million USD. The listing is held by Foxtons and features dozens of additional photos of the building’s interior.
