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.
