This unique luxury property offers many original Church features, such as it's beautiful stained windows and vaulted ceilings, along with stunning panoramic views.


Behind the imposing façade of the former Alcedonia Church lies this architecturally unique home. The location of this impressive church conversion is almost as award winning as the building itself, located opposite the popular Belle Vue Park, which is the hub of the local community regularly hosting festivals, events and general enjoyment of the open space by local residents. This sympathetically converted apartment not only retains an array of architecturally-pleasing features, here they have been restored and integrated into the luxury design so that they sing the history of the building's past. The architecture in this apartment manages to capture the essence of vast open spaces that would have existed in the original church and celebrates all its surviving features. Throughout the property a mix of contemporary and natural materials have been used to ensure that the property has a modern feel but is also a warm inviting space. The vaulted ceilings with exposed oak beams assist with the feeling of light and space whilst the eye catching Gothic style stained glass windows provide a pop of colour. The glass staircase panels provide a modern touch with the contrasting wood handrails making a visual connection to the aforementioned oak ceiling beams. The Bespoke high gloss kitchen reflects & disperses light giving a perfect balance of ultramodern design whilst allowing the cornucopia of original features to take centre stage.
