This beautifully renovated Ontario church is for sale for $1 million
Finding a church for sale in Ontario is not common but there have been a few on the market.
It was the home of the Woodford United Church, founded in 1872 and constructed in 1905, according to realtor Vivienne Bent with Royal LePage Locations North.
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.
Local reputed craftsmen and tradespeople were used in the upgrades, Bent says.
The renovated church is now a three-bedroom home with an open concept layout.
From the entranceway, the church opens to a large living room with high ceilings where the services were once held.
The modern kitchen has views of crown conservation land. The home is next to the Bruce Trail.
There is a loft on this floor set up as a bedroom.
Two other bedrooms are on the main floor along with a four-piece bathroom.
The main floor also has a laundry room and a recreation room.
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.
