130-Year-Old Church In Vermont Is Transformed Into a Modern Home



Built in 1893, this former Victorian church is now a modern, 5-bedroom home. Painted bright blue, the home sits on just under three-quarters of an acre in Castleton, Vermont, within close distance to the Lakes Region and less than an hour's drive from Killington and Okemo ski resorts. The home maintains many original church details, such as 23-foot altar ceilings with acoustic tiles and stained glass windows. However, it's fully equipped for modern living. The former sacristy is now an office and workshop space with its own entrance. On the main level is an open concept living area, kitchen, and dining room, with windows that allow natural light to flood in. Connecting the first and second floors is a winding, wooden staircase. The upstairs is home to the majority of the home's bedrooms, including a two-level master suite. All have access to a second-floor balcony overlooking the altar space, which seems like the perfect space to enjoy a morning coffee. Surprisingly, the home sold for a mere $375,000.
