171-Year-Old Church In Connecticut Converted To a House Hits The Market

In Essex, Connecticut, a church dating back to 1849 has been converted into a 3-bedroom family home, and now it’s on the market for the first time in 50 years. The house, valued at $1.3 million, was completely rebuilt between 1985 and 1996. Each of the three bedrooms comes with an en-suite bathroom, and there are two full kitchens — one of which is oversized with three ovens and two dishwashers. The first floor of the house has an exercise room, as well as a game room with a pool table. Despite its modern appliances, some parts of the home still look like a church, thanks to high ceilings and carefully preserved details. The most unforgettable part of the house just might be its steeple, which has been converted into a rooftop patio.
