The United Church ran regular services from 1925 until it was decommissioned in 2005.

The current owner meticulously converted and renovated the church with attention to detail, Bent says. The owner kept original heritage pieces such as a green stained glass window, which is now an art piece on the wall. There is also a church plaque outside the door.

Although the home is listed as in Meaford, it is actually in the hamlet of Woodford. For those who like winter sports, it is a short drive to Beaver Valley Ski Club and The Blue Mountains. It is also a short drive to Georgian Bay for watersports in the summer.
