This restored church with cathedral ceilings is on sale for under $800K in Ontario
A converted church north of Toronto comes with a bit of history, a stone fireplace and a steeple.
The former church, now a home at 10 Mill St. in rural Amaranth — not far from Orangeville — is listed for sale for just under $800,000.
It was built in 1887 and served the community as Waldemar Presbyterian Church for over 100 years, according to Dufferin County historic records. It closed to the public and sold in 1995.
The exterior of the church looks much like it did in the historic photos, and the current owner kept a piece of history at the entranceway with a wooden sign from the old church.
The interior of the building has been renovated into a five-bedroom, four-bathroom residence.
There is an open-concept kitchen, living room and dining room.
The redesign kept the tall cathedral ceilings.
The centrepiece of the great room is a stone fireplace.
A large back deck has views over the Grand River.
The home has a separate entrance into a finished basement with another fireplace, two bedrooms, a three-piece bedroom, kitchenette and storage room.
There is also a laundry room downstairs.
The church has a new steel roof. Like many country homes, there is no access to city services. Water comes from a drilled well and the property has a septic system.
But it does come with some extra outbuildings — a garage and garden shed.
