Couple Buys Abandoned Church And Gives It An Unimaginable Transformation

We have all visited a special church, during a city trip through a new city or perhaps in our own country. Although we are not all religious, it is always very interesting to view an abandoned church from the 18th century. The history of such a large building is often surprising.


Although most of us would only look at it, not many people would think about living in such a church, right? This couple thought differently about that! Ian Bottomley and Sally Onions fell in love with the 18th-century old abandoned church and decided to buy it and then turn it into their dream home. The beautiful St. Nicholas Church in Kyloe (United Kingdom) is an impressive monumental Georgian building. This beautiful structure was built with special stones and had amazing features to be cherished, such as the painted windows and the remarkable west tower.

Ian and his wife Sally knew that this church was destined to be restored. “We were impressed by the environment,” says Ian. “Sally and I were looking for our first home together and enjoyed setting up an old parsonage. But renovating an old church seemed an even better plan. “ Curious about the inside? You can see it on the next page.
